I've downloaded the matrox linux drivers for the g550. Istalling the mga_hal.o in the driver directoy wasn't enough, so I overwrited the mga_drv.o file with the linux one.
Starting X worked, BUT, it was not possible to get a console back. When quitting X I get a blank and black screen. I need to ssh from another workstation to make a proper shutdown.
When I disable acpi at boot time, start X (with linux drivers) and quit X I'm able to get back a console. Unfortunately dual screen does not work.
What I didn't mention is that I'm using the dvi connectors of my lcds screen, perpaps this is also source of the problem?!
thanks for feedback, comments, tips or any help.
