One interesting thing is that with the previous library a Matrox G450 PCI would show up, but only the Hint PCI bridge that it uses.

Thinking that this new library might be able to see through the bridge, I tried it and it causes the machine to reboot before it gets to Workbench.

Removing the card or going back to the old library allows me to get to Workbench.

Not that there is a driver for it, but it was an interesting result that might happen with some other cards.

Would love to be able to use one of my Matrox cards in my Amiga.  Granted, I need to rebuild my Amiga setup still.  Gonna see if I can get to it today.

I had stuck my old 10k SCSI drive inside my A4000D, but decided it produced more heat than it was worth, and ended up putting in a FAST ATA MK-VI in it.

I had some other minor problems, so I reinstalled the Mediator 2.5 update and now it's not causing the reboot.

The problem with that Matrox is that it has a non-transparent PCI to PCI bridge that has to be configured properly or else you can't see through it to the actual Matrox card. All you can see is the Hint Bridge device in PciInfo.

I thought it might be a well documented, common card to write a driver for but it seems to be more trouble than it's worth.

One is a bare device file: http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?file_id=10026753365811088300


This one is actually an HTML file, which seems to be an Aminet page for the device.

This is identical to the archive on Aminet :)

Well, that sucks.
