Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 24355
Install with Matrox G450 locks system

X install with Matrox G450 locks system.
A text install will complete but any attempt to run X after setup
locks the system.
The G450 card is completely unsupported by XFree86 in Red Hat Linux 6.2.
It is also unsupported in 7.0, and no stable support currently exists
in my current XFree86-4.0.2 working tree. It will be supported at some
point in time under a future version of Red Hat Linux, but definitely
not for Red Hat Linux 6.2.
Your only recourse is to obtain the latest 4.0.2 or later sources from
XFree86 directly and build it yourself (with fingers crossed that the
G450 will work - no promises), or to wait until a future release of
Red Hat Linux that supports this card. I have a G450, so will be making
every effort to integrate support when it is available. Again, not for 6.2 however.
