Subjectmatroxfb and 2.6.0-test2
The card is a Matrox Millenium G400 M4A32DG (single head).

2.6.0-test2 is the first 2.5.x I try, so I may be missing

During make modules_install I noticed the following warning
(yes, I installed the latest module-init-tools):

if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.6.0-test2; fi
WARNING: /lib/modules/2.6.0-test2/kernel/drivers/video/matrox/matroxfb_crtc2.ko
needs unknown symbol matroxfb_enable_irq

I don't know if it's serious but then I rebooted from 2.4.21.

My init script contains

if lspci | grep -q 'MGA G400'; then
modprobe matroxfb_base

and /etc/modprobe.conf options matroxfb_base vesa=440

After it the screen became corrupted with a dump of my last
shutdown. All commands still worked. I don't use fbset at all.
The logs don't have anything about matroxfb.

With 2.4.21 I get
