Dual monitor XF86free setup


Hi, I have just installed a matrox G200-SD in my computer, recognized by lspci as follows:

0000:00:0c.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G200 (rev 01)

It is supposed to run as a second monitor together with my primary using a ti4200 G4 in the AGP port:

pci bus 0x0001 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x10de device 0x0253 nVidia Corporation NV25 [GeForce4 Ti 4200]

I have edited my XFree86-4 (debian) but I get the error when running startx:

(WW) MGA: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:12:0) found

Can you tell me why ??

Thank you very much !!

I attach listing of my XF86free-4 file, and startup log:
