1.225.1. RHBA-2010:0324: bug fix update

An updated xorg-x11-drv-mga driver which fixes several bugs is now available.
xorg-x11-drv-mga is a video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System, for Matrox G-series chips.
This updated package addresses the following issues:
* Updates to the driver for Pilot1 and Pilot2 chipsets caused display errors in the installer for the remote kernel-based virtual machine when used with the Pilot2 chipset at 800x600 resolution. This patch adds a condition that the updates are used only with the Pilot1 chipset, and no longer causes display issues. (BZ#518997)
* When kernel panic was initiated on a machine with a Matrox video controller, the system would freeze and fail to generate a vmcore. This was caused by a bug in DDC1 (Display Data Channel) support or the Matrox G200eW video card. The DDC1 support that caused the problem has been removed. The vmcore file now generates correctly. (BZ#563196)
Users are advised to upgrade to this updated xorg-x11-drv-mga package which resolves these issues.
