Doesn't the xserver-xorg-video-mga work for the video driver?

I asked you to share the results of 'lspci -nn' and you got an error? I don't think so.

that post its about the official drivers from matrox, the ones I used..

I dont know what to do anymore... I was wondering if the error was about something that was interfiering with the compiling process
