I posted this a few days ago, but got no responses. I have some more
information now, and I'll try again.
When I installed my G200 card, started linux, ran Xconfigurator,....
everything worked perfectly. No problems whatsoever. However, the next
time I started X, it failed with a 'signal 11, aborting', and I couldn't get
X to start. So, I reinstalled my old card for the time being.
I visited Matrox's site, and downloaded their beta driver for Linux. I
replaced X's currently installed driver with the one Matrox provided.
Again, I installed the G200, ran Xconfigurator, and everything worked
perfectly. This time, however, the next time I started X, it started (no
signal 11 this time), but all I got was a black screen, on which the only
thing visible were some icons (I run IceWM). No text was readable at all.
Mind you, in between running Xconfigurator, and the next time I started X, I
didn't touch a single system file. Nothing should have changed. Why on
earth would it behave differently??

Hope someone can offer some assistance,
