First update to the mga_xorg7_installer


Only in short terms, here's the update making it up from version 1.0 to 1.0.1 bugfix release.

The ChangeLog:
1.0.1   Bugfix release
        * The apt-get command redirects its output to $LOGFILE and because we
          want the user to enter y or n for the installation of packages, he
          doesn't see the question produced by apt-get -> Don't redirect the
          output of apt-get [FIXED]
        * Added additional functionality for checking the availability of
          packages before we try to install them automatically [ADDED]
        * Added a quick and dirty workaround for the Ubuntu problem mentioned
          by Hark in the General Linux Forums. Ubuntu has no installable
          package called xutils-dev, instaed it provides the package "imake"

1.0     Initial release

Thanks very much for your upgrade script - just upgraded to Dapper and my dual monitor configuration was broken (which was weird because I tesed it out on the live cd). Anyhow I recompiled the drivers using your script and it worked without a hitch!

Thanks again,

Simon

The Live-CD usually falls back to the VESA driver if it
can't support the requested hardware, or uses a predefined
configuration for the mga driver that works on your system.

I'm glad to hear, that I could be of help to you :)
