Environment:

Matrox G550
TFT with 1280x1024 resolution at DVI connector

For Fedora there is this bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=466318

With matroxfb_base.vesa=0x11B as boot parameter for 1280x1024 resolution as workaround
on the Fedora-12-i686-Live-KDE image I get this :

1280 frames in 5.0 seconds = 255.857 FPS

Seems with little quirks to set the right initial mode for matroxfb the stock driver is usable.

Hi All

Firstly, shame this forum has been so damaged by spam - ive found it very useful, thanks Alex et al.

Whats the latest with the mga driver with the newer xorgs? Will the mga 4.4.4 download on this site work with :

X Window System Version 7.1.1
Release Date: 12 May 2006
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.1.1
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.18-53.el5 x86_64 Red Hat, Inc.

Or is there something else out there (google didnt yield much) or should i let my g-series collect some more dust and just buy a p-series?

thanks
Piers
