Description Ron 2006-01-01 21:43:53 UTC
Matrox G450 Dual Head

When I was using 6.8 and the 6.9 cvs snapshots, everything worked fine.  Then
the 7.0 rc's started coming out, and using 32bit depth, programs and colors were
all screwy on one monitor but fine on the other.  Then 7.0 came out, and that
problem went away.

Now the problem is the X server is very laggy with 32bit depth but it's fine for
16bit depth.  As an example, emerging openoffice-bin, which is just extracting
and copying files, took about 2 minutes before switching to 7.0, and it takes
over 15 minutes with 7.0 and 32bit color depth.  On 16bit color depth, it takes
about 2 minutes again.

It seems to be working now with the latest version of everything.
