    Driver section says "Configured Video Device" not matrox??

    Hi,

    [Information]

    Version: Ubuntu 8
    Graphics Card: Matrox g45+MDHP16D
    Enviroment: Gnome


    I was trying to install the dual screen on my ubuntu setup and have been following this post.

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1773624

    In the example the person duplicated the driver section like so.

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 330M/340M/350M (RS200 IGP)"
    Driver "ati"
    BusID "PCI:1:5:0"
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "ATI Technologies, Inc. Radeon 330M/340M/350M (RS200 IGP)" Driver "ati"
    BusID "PCI:1:5:0"
    EndSection
    However all mine says is

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    Which obviously won't work.

    Any clues?

    Do I need to run the reconfigure first?

    Ok reconfigure wasn't the answer.
    Am I missing a step here?

    The identifier is meaningless, you can use any name you want for your devices. The system detects the device based on the BusID, identifier is just a helper for the user. If you want you can call your graphics card "Jane" and use that in your configurations.

    The important thing is just that whatever name you use in the device section, you need to use same name when referring to that device in the Screen section.
