Description David Lawrence 2001-09-06 17:45:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
When using xf86cfg to configure XFree86 4.1 with a Matrox G450, it adds a
line called ChipSet which generates an error when starting X. If you
comment the line out then X starts properly. Also the files section is not
getting generated properly when starting with a blank configuration. I am
attaching the relevant output.

Preston has closed many bugs against xf86cfg in the past as
"we do not support xf86cfg", so I am sending this upstream as
well, and closing it for now.  I'm sure if the problem still
exists, it stands a better chance of getting fixed that way.
