I don't know but I suspect it might have to do with (then?) lack
of opengl drivers. If anyone has an answer I'd love to hear it.

Right now I don't see opportunity to work on mga support for various
reasons, but if that changes I'd like to take you up on the offer. I
have an old athlon board that is supposed to still work and probably
would take MGA boards once I get around to replacing the PSU. In any
case I'd like to thank you for the offer.
