Did you have a chance to try checking/reinstalling your X packages as I
Thanks for the follow up. The problem was only resolved by installing
driver package from Matrox. It overwrote the mga_drv driver within
the X libraries area, and then X would start. Prior to that I had tried
the package from debian sources and every angle I could think of.
I know that months before that, I had problems with switching video
nvidia to matrox. In that case, a proprietary nvidia library was
getting in the way
of making GLX work for Matrox. I may have installed the Matrox prop. driver
way back then in attempts to overwrite this, and then this required working
with the matrox driver from here on - breaking only when X was updated.
I'm sorry I don't have more details. I have a lot of systems to take
and my desktop is probably the least important of them, so I probably don't
take as much note of what I do there.
