System is Slackware 10.0 with default kernel (2.4.26). Same happens with 
xmga. I cannot load mga_vid.o, although it was compiled. I changed gid 
for /dev/mga_vid to video. Before that error was "open: Permission denied"


root at main:~/install/mplcvs/main/vidix/drivers# insmod mga_vid.o
mga_vid.o: couldn't find the kernel version the module was compiled for
root at main:~# ls -l /dev/mga_vid
crw-rw----  1 root video 178, 0 2001-03-25 23:04 /dev/mga_vid
mr at main:/fat3/pp/ab$ mplayer -vo mga film.avi
