[G450][UBUNTU 8.10] Dual Head Issue.

Postby zaist » Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:01 pm


I hope I am not double posting here, but my G450 won't go dual-head on unbuntu intrepid ibex (8.10).

* xorg.conf seems to be ok.
* starting Xorg only gives me the default screen.
* I got this in Xorg.0.log : (EE) MGA(1): This card requires the "mga_hal" module for dual-head operation

What I did then is copying the drivers I found in the download section by myself (using the 7.0 ones) as the installing script is not matching Intreprid xversion.

Angain if I am double posting I am sorry, any help will be aprecied to make the dualhead working.
