    Default Matrox D400 Dual Head Drivers for Linux Mandrake 9.1

    I am Trying to migrate from windows to Linux but can not get the dual head function of my Matrox G400 16mb Ram card to function so I can get one CAD drawing up on the second monitor whilst I work on the drawing in the first monitor. Also I am unable to set up two monitors to run at the same time. Any one able to help?

    Latest driver release for the card is a beta back in Jan 03

    There is also a powerdesk release that is a couple of years old
    Check which drivers Mandrake has installed against the listing at Matrox
    I found a reference to your problem, but the page had gone.
    I'm about to install Red Hat 9 with a G400 32Mb Dualhead so I hope it supports dual monitors as I also need both of them running.
    I'll let you know how it goes.

    Thank you for your help the address you gave me was great and it looks as if it will solve my problem once if find the time to get into the installation instructions for the powerquest driver and the system options I see that Powerquest have a beta driver for Red Hat distro and i wish you every success with your installation.
    sorry about the delay in reply but i kept getting an error message when trying to access Press F1 but webmaster has fixed now
