my display card is Matrox G400, and i checked my kernel, it appears display card and everything has installed correctly. i'm not sure why compiler is complaining matrox_maven.c and /usr/include/linux/i2c-dev.h. not quite sure what has to do with it. any suggestion help me get this thing compiled?

thanks =-)
