I've found a post saying that video overlay requires the mga_hal module. If that's true, awesome.

I doubt it'll work, but try textured video:
Code:
  Option "TexturedVideo" "true"

This will disable DRI though, but I'd say video playback is more important than 3D, I doubt you'll be gaming on this machine. I'll tell you one thing though, the mga driver is a big giant mess. That thing I said about wanting a Matrox card to play with? Forget it, just buy a new graphic card.

TexturedVideo doesn't help ether :cry:

But that + recurrent system freezings I'm facing, it's probably time to me to have a look for a new PC that have to be saved from recycling ... :evil:

I've liked playing w/ this little piece of &$*#, but I'm loosing to much time for nothing : after all, it's not an Amiga, it's a PC, and a PC is by definition disposable.

I'll revert back to the previous version of Xorg :arrow: my spare machine collection.

I recompiled xorg-server and as well as drivers ... but at startup, X give only a black screen and I even wasn't able to switch to a terminal :?

So What I missed ?
