I'm having a hard time enabling my 2nd ATI HD3870.
Two monitors, each one is plugged into Port0 on separate video cards.


xorg.conf is as follows


Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[0]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "aticonfig-Device[1]-0"
Driver "fglrx"
BusID "PCI:3:0:0"
EndSection



Section "Monitor"
Identifier "aticonfig-Monitor[0]-0"
Option "VendorName" "ATI Proprietary Driver"
Option "ModelName" "Generic Autodetecting Monitor"
Option "DPMS" "true"
EndSection

EndSubSection
EndSection

EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "aticonfig-Screen[1]-1"
Device "aticonfig-Device[1]-1"
Monitor "aticonfig-Monitor[1]-1"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
EndSubSection
EndSection




aticonfig --lsa as follows


* 0. 01:00.0 ATI Radeon HD 3870
1. 03:00.0 ATI Radeon HD 3870


So obviously the drivers installed correctly and the computer recognizes that they are both there, however only one shows up in the Catalyst Control Center

How do I go about enabling the 2nd card located at PCI BUS 03:00

Hi and welcome, I do not have a ATI at the moment but can you detect them in the display configuration, use the command
gksu displayconfig-gtk

Moved to Multimedia & Video :)

Am I ever going to get to the bottom of this?
