>From mga(4x):
       Support for the second head on G400
       cards requires a binary-only "mga_hal" module that  is  available  from
       Matrox  <http://www.matrox.com>, and may be on the CD supplied with the
       card.  That module also provides various other enhancements, and may be
       necessary  to  use  the  DVI  (digital)  output  on the G550 (and other
       cards).

Last I checked, that mga_hal module is x86 only, and I know it is
requred to use DVI on a G450.
