    Angry Dual ATI Cards -> Half Working

    System:
    ATI RADEON 3450 HD ( 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x HDMI ) [ pci-e x16 ]
    ATI 9200 PRO ( 1x DVI, 1x VGA ) [ pci ]

    Currently:
    I can get two of the montiors working at a time, not both sets. However on the none working I get "113-PAC78H06-00R-HT-R1 R9250 128M\64B CRT\TV\DVI-I 166M\240E" I believe that represents some data from the 9200, that however is being outputted on the 3450.

    The question:
    How can I get both cards ( 4 monitors total ) working together? I am using the default "ati" driver as the fglrx isn't working as good.

    Re: Dual ATI Cards -> Half Working

    Sorry ... don't have a solution but do have a suggestion ...

    What's going to hamper you in whatever you do to solve this is that the 9200 does not have ATI Linux drivers anymore -- and is not going to. ATI dropped Linux driver support for that card a long time ago.

    The Phoronix forums have an open source ATI driver forum where they do a lot of testing and tweaking. If you check there, you may find some settings you can tweak to do what you want.
    Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
