Updated xorg-x11-drv-mga packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xorg-x11-drv-mga packages provide a video driver for Matrox G-series chipsets for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the graphical user interface could appear distorted on 19-inch monitors with the 16:9 ratio. The xorg-x11-drv-mga packages have been fixed, and so the distortion no longer occurs in this scenario.
Previously, resolutions higher than 1440x900 were not available with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 using the MGA G200e chips. Consequently, the Matrox driver did not allow native resolutions to be reached for many monitors. With this update, the X Server no longer discards larger resolution modes, and resolutions higher than 1440x900 are now available.
Users of xorg-x11-drv-mga are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
