    Angry Dual ATI X1650PRO Cards System

    Hi all,
    I've installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron 64bit on my system but I'm not able to setup correctly XOrg to use my two ATI X1650PRO cards...

    I tried in the past with Debian, Ubuntu Gutsy, Fedora, but nothing...

    Could anyone help me?

    I have installed ATI Proprietary fglrx driver 8.47.3:

    root@Tower:/home/user# fglrxinfo
    display: :0.0 screen: 0
    OpenGL vendor string: ATI Technologies Inc.
    OpenGL renderer string: Radeon X1600 Series
    OpenGL version string: 2.1.7415 Release
    This is my PCI Devices list:

    Each ATI card supports two monitors, but I have plugged one monitor to one card.

    ATI Catalyst detects only one card (the first one)...

    In the past I tried to specify the PCI:X:00.Y BusID in the xorg.conf with no success (sometime the second monitor turned on but displaying ATI Firmware revision! )

    Could anyone help me?

    Thanks guys,

    MM
