Re: Ubuntu Dual Monitor (Matrox) problem

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

Do people really care about Matrox that much? I'd be happy to take
over maintenance and testing from ajax if people want. (It *is* ajax
maintaining it, right? Or does anybody else have a pile of Matroxes?)

(... Is it "Matroxes" or "Matroces?" Maybe "Matrox" is the singular
and plural? I don't know.)

Also, if you've been fixing it every release, have you been submitting
patches back?
