You cannot use the unofficial mga drivers since your xorg is too new.
These unofficial drivers work with xorg until version 1.4.1 (if I remember well), with xorg 1.5 and newer you can use the official mga drivers from xorg team, although they don't feature 3D capabilities.

I can't find the new driver on the official matrox support. The last driver is the 2006 one.

Where can I find the new one ?

The mga driver from xorg team is part of xorg so your distro should provide it via a package system (i don't know what fedora is actually using)

Hello,

I can't get working my X server. If I use the vesa driver, just one of my two monitor works (without any graphical acceleration).
But if I put mga driver, I have no display. Nothing is working.

Here are my logs and my conf (see attached files).

[edit] ps : How could I find the verticalrefresh and horizontalsync of my main monitor ?

Any idea to solve my problem ?

Any idea please ?

Hello,

I can not get working my MGA (G450) card using the inbuilt driver of the Fedora Core 11. If I use the mga driver, the screen stay black or red with an 'Out of range' message.
If I put vesa, I have at most "1280x1024".

My monitor can go to "1600x1200" if the driver is correctly fonctionning.
I have 2 monitors to configure, and I can't configure just one.

Any help will be appreciated. I have attached the logs to my previous post.
