ATI driver doesn't work with 2 VGAs installed on CrossFire system
my first post:)
I trust this forum help all linux user, and mine is a distro wide problem.
I'm looking for somebody that is running X with 2 Radeon on a CrossFire mainboard.
I know that XFire is a tecnology available on for Windows and DirectX, but I want to know how to make working one VGA device in Linux without the needs of removing the other one.
My expirience refer to:
2x X850 XT( CrossFire edition & CrossFire ready tested with Windows drivers)
SyncMaster 244T with native resolution 1920x1200
My distro is -amd64 Gentoo 2006.1 with GCC4.1.1( I'm going to upgrade my profile info :p )
and the x86_64 ATI driver since 8.27.10 enable DRI for all VGA devices to the Radeon X1950( release 8.30.3 still doesn't work ).
If I remove the slave card I can run X with a fglrx drived device but if togheter are installed X stuck in a black screen( with a low resolution, as I can see from cursor ) also I can hear the VGA works because fan speed increase but no input device respond and there is not any info in the log file
( since 8.30.3 system reboot ) .
Is needed some special section in xorg.conf?
