    matrox g450 and resolution

    hi all,
    I've a graphic card "matrox g450 dual head", my goal is to set monitor resolution with 1440x900 or 1280x960, as I've on Windows (with the same card).
    At present, I can only get 1024x768, using mga Xorg driver.
    Proprietary driver from are incompatible with xorg version.
    Any suggestion? Thankyou!
