Haiku hangs at boot, video problem
|Reported by:||stellar_power||Owned by:||nobody|

I have an Asus P5E3 motherboard with an XFX NVidia GeForce 8500 graphics card in a PCI-E x16 slot and a very old Matrox card in a PCI slot (I'm not sure of the product number, I'll get it as soon as I can).
I didn't plan to use the Matrox card under Haiku as I couldn't find any support for it, unsurprisingly given its age and peculiarity. Anyway, when I boot into Alpha 3, the system hangs on the rocket icon unless I use fail safe video mode. If I do this, the system often crashes eventually, normally when I change workspace. There have been times when the screen has gone black, and whilst the mouse responds, it only turns the black to white in blocks where it moves. I haven't been able to reproduce this yet after learning how to get a syslog. The most frequent crash whilst the system is up is when the app server drops into gdb, and I'm afraid I haven't a clue how to debug it from there so I can't give you any more information than another syslog.
I should mention that without the Matrox card, the problem goes away, but I did want to use it in Windows for some video editing/capturing.
