Re: Matrox G550 + mga driver hangs system

Tony Stoneley composed on 2017-03-29 14:36 (UTC+0100):

I'm trying an experimental upgrade from stable to testing on an
elderly system with a Matrox Millenium G550 graphics adaptor plugged
directly into the motherboard, using the mga driver, and have run into
a brick wall with the xserver. When started, eg with startx, the
system immediately freezes and the only escape seems to be reboot. In
particular ctrl-alt-Fn has no effect in this state, which makes
diagnosis tricky. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
