OpenBSD 2.8 (and associated XFree86) vs Matrox Millenium II



Goal:
	Use a Matrox Millennium II for X-windows under OpenBSD 2.8

Summary:

	The XF86Setup executable available with OpenBSD 2.8 does not successfully
	recognize my Matrox Millenium II, while the version supplied with 2.7 does.

	Since they are both 3.3.6, I'm not sure whose court this is in, so I posted
	to both lists.

Details:

	0. OpenBSD 2.8 from CDROM, Compaq Presario 7594 w/128MB, Matrox Millennium II w/4MB
	1. Run XF86Setup
	2. After the "this may take awhile [Enter]" it just hangs with a black
	   screen, never returning to text mode, but never printing the "Save/Exit"
	   graphic either.
	3. Press C-A-Backspace, it returns to text mode, with the message that
	   it was running on the wrong virtual terminal, and to switch to the
	   right one and try again. All of this is on the root window, with no
	   virtual terminals visited since boot.

X -version:

	This one (from 2.7) works:

One last note: the 2.8 version correctly handles an ATI Xpert98 video card, which I
have in another box running 2.8.

--------------------

Any thoughts? Matrox seems far to popular a card to have dropped so rapidly.
Do I need to buy a new video card to run 2.8?
