I've thought about kicking out my celeron 600 and get a new amd64 system
(Asus A8V) - AGP because I want to reuse my old G400DH. I know that the
binary drivers matrox supplies are only fuer i386... but did someone took
the source and tried to compile it with xorg/xfree and amd64? Did it work?
If not.. any suggestion for a new graphic card which gives me the
opportunity to connect two CRT monitors to it (no DVI) and is supported
by xorg (xinerama)?
My G450 + two monitors works / worked fine (found out I didn't like xinerama
at all), nothing special to be done about it, using whatever xorg provides.
glgears puts in a lousy 182 fps, but this is a workstation, not a gaming rig,
so who cares?
Hmmm I've removed my mga_hal binary and only got one monitor to work:
(EE) MGA: Failed to load module "mga_hal" (module does not exist, 0)
(==) MGA(1): Matrox HAL module not loaded - using builtin mode setup
instead (EE) MGA(1): This card requires the "mga_hal" module for dual-
head operation It can be found at the Matrox web site
<http://www.matrox.com> (II) UnloadModule: "mga"
(II) UnloadModule: "vgahw"
