From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.1-0.1.9 i686)
Got through install with Matrox Millenium G450 by skipping X test,
otherwise hangs as per bug 26677. Intall reported G400 but
choosing G450 did not help. Crashed hard if startx attempted
before latest Matrox beta driver was installed. Now works.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Wolverine skipping X test - correct G400 to G450
2. Login and startx
3. Hit the power switch when nothing else works.
4. Install beta driver from Matrox.
5. Try again - now works.
Actual Results: See above.
Expected Results: Great performance with the right driver.
We aren't shipping a binary-only driver from Matrox. Sorry.
Did you try the latest X packages from rahwide?
Um.. why was this filed against component "db1"? Changing.
The G450 support is currently not fully functional, however Matrox
is aware of this and is working on the issue. I hope to have an updated
open source G450 driver from them shortly.
The G450 should now be working fine in both single
and dualhead configurtions. XFree86-4.0.3-3
