i am trying to get dual display running in rh7.2, but my "mga" drivers gets dumped when xwindows starts up in gnome(xfree log says so).

i have a nvidia ti200 as my main screen0 and the matrox as screen1...but my matrox driver never seems to there anywhere i can get a millenium driver for this old pci card....

why would the driver get dumped....i cant make any since of it....i use the "mga" driver.

btw...when i booted into xp...just to see if it would had np getting both cards and monitor to work as dual display....

There is also direct support for that in the 2.4.17 Kernel. You will probably need to enable that option and recompile.
