Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 And 2 ATI Radeon 4870 Cards - Only One Adapter Will Show At A Time

Jun 11, 2010

I am trying to dual boot into Ubuntu and thus far everything works great on my machine. There is one HUGE issue.

I am running 2 Radeon 4870 Cards. Only one adapter will show at a time. I am used to Having 4 monitors and the max amount of Monitors it will allow me to have are two.

It does recognise the Second Adapter when I go into the Catalyst Control (it shows the option for Cross Firing) and it shows both adapters when I do:


I have tried:


The closest I had was that my main two monitors showed the splash page when the other two monitors on the other adapter were displayed. So It did switch once... But I have yet get all four monitors to work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon - 2 Cards And 3 Monitors (Xinerama)

May 21, 2010

After working on trying to get my 3 monitors to work with Ubuntu 10.4 and my ATI Radeon HD3200 (IGP) and HD4850 cards, I just had to share the xorg.conf. I am using the default open source drivers that came with 10.4 and I kept KMS enabled (it wouldn't work without it).

Here is my conf:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "4850-2-Screen"
Screen 1 "4850-1-Screen" RightOf "4850-2-Screen"
Screen 2 "3200-Screen" RightOf "4850-1-Screen"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "Xinerama" "on"
#OPtion "Clone" "off"
EndSection .....

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XOrg (Opensource) Drivers For ATI Radeon Cards?

Jan 4, 2010

For those of us who were stung last year by ATI's decision to drop support for <= R500 series cards from their closed source, or proprietary driver (known as the FGLRX driver), we are now forced to use the opensource ATI XORG driver. This is not as bad as it sounds, as in doing so, ATI has released a lot of the hardware specs on these older cards and the opensource driver has improved dramatically in the last year as a result.

Ubuntu includes both the ATI and the FGLRX driver install capacities in recent releases (since Intrepid(?)). If one can install the FGLRX driver, you should be able to do this by choosing System>Administration>Hardware Drivers and choosing to activate the ATI drivers; or you can manually install them using this guide: [URL]

However, if you have a card that is or below the R500 series (i.e. not R600+) DO NOT install the FGLRX drivers - you will break your X server (video display). If you don't know what series chipset you have, try the following:

$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 PCI Express Root Port (rev 0c)


If you're like me and need a production machine, but just want updated drivers, try this link: [URL]

To add the PPA (Guide): [URL]

These are fairly easy to remove (as described on the site); just remove the PPA from your Software Sources and downgrade the drivers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can Only Get 1 Video Adapter To Work At The Same Time

Jul 12, 2011

With out going into 2 much detail at this point this is my issue.

I have installed unbuntu 11.04. I have 3 screens. 2 are attached to a ATi adapter and 1 screen is a sandy bridge video adapter.

I have already used the forums a lot to reach this point.

When i change my bios to set the primary adapter to sandy bridge, I can only get 1 screen to work.

When I set my bios to point to the Ati adapter as primary, then only the 2 screens connected to that adapter work.

How do I get both video adapters and all 3 screens to work?

I have run out of ideas on what my next step should be.

Ati adapter is a Radeon HD 4800 Series. The Sandy bridge one HD Graphics Family

Hardware :: ATI CrossFireX With Two Radeon HD 3650 Cards?

Aug 20, 2010

For some time, almost since it came out, I've been using a single Radeon HD 3650 with two (dissimilar) monitors. It's fine and works well with fglrx and openSUSE. ( Although now that I come to think of it, openSUSE 11.3 does only have preview support in my current fglrx. ) I now have a second, identical card. My hardware is:

Video cards: 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 3650
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA790X-DS4 1.0
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black


My video card did come, if I remember rightly, with a crossfire bridge but that has been thrown away (not by me). However the motherboard specifications do include support for CrossFireX. I've tried, although with very little understanding of how, to use aticonfig to set up my cards for crossfire. As it stands crossfire is not enabled and aticonfig claims that it does not support this platform:


# aticonfig --cfa --adapter=all --crossfire=on
CrossFire chain added
Warning: X needs to be restarted before CrossFire changes take effect.
CrossFire chain(s) enabled


Is it possible to get this working?

Ubuntu :: After Log In Takes Long Time To Show Desktop, Monitor Events At Log In Time?

May 24, 2011

It takes me a while to log in the splash screen just sits there for ages before i get to the desktop. Never used to be this slow and I'm not sure why. Firstly, I'm running Ubuntu 11.04, standard DE. I do have conky starting up in a script but it has the & at the end of the line so I didn't think this would cause it (or is there some special case for log in time on how & is treated?). However as a test I will comment out the line in the script and see if it is the cause.

However just for general knowledge and in case that isn't the problem, how does one go seeing what is happening during the time from when one log's in and the desktop is displayed? Is there some kind of log that shows the date/time that can be enabled or is there a debug mode that can be enabled somehow via special keys or maybe from grub?

Ubuntu :: Switch Graphics Adapter(ATI Mobility Radeon 5450-> Intel GMA) In 10.10?

Oct 19, 2010

Installed Ubuntu 10.10 on fresh HP dm4-1050so laptop and encountered problems, this is one of them. Noticed that ATI card is heating heavely with default installation and I would like disable it and switch to use Intel's GMA. Also tested ATI proprietary fglrx driver through Administration->Additional Drivers, after booting got empty screen so I switched back. Afterwards read from documentation that 5450 is not supported, so no wonder. So what is the simplest way of disabling ATI and using only Intel's gma? Here's what I got with lspci -v:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1469
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 45
Memory at c0000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]

Ubuntu Installation :: ATI HD 4870 - Total Crash After Kernel Update

Jul 1, 2011

I have just done a fresh install of 10.10 (full updates) with my new HD 4870, downloaded the last catalyst 11.6 from AMD, I have done the normal procedure of the driver installation, Ubuntu booted correctly, i changed some options in CCC, one of them the "video tearing option" after that X crashed, rebooted the machine, but it stays that way, before the login screen, the X crashes (corrupted image) only reset button restarts the machine.

I removed the installed driver, purged the configurations and started all over using the deb package creation procedure of the driver and also the manual script installation, but it stays the same way, removed again the driver, installed the OSS driver, it logins correctly, tested also with the restricted driver of the Ubuntu repository, it works, but no "video tearing option".

Done a new fresh install of 10.10 (no updates), installed the driver and enabled the "video tearing option", everything is ok, but if I upgrade the kernel the problem returns (if "video tearing option" is enable), i managed to overcome the video tearing option by always enabling VSYNC. After all this, my question is how can I reset CCC settings via command line, the aticonf --initial dont work in this case, CCC is keeping the settings in some config file (I think) that I dont know the location. I want to do some testing, and its annoying to remove, install , reinstall the driver when the X enters this crash loop.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon Driver And ATI ES1000 - Flickers One Time Each 4 Of 5 Seconds

Apr 8, 2011

I upgraded a HP Proliant server to openSUSE 11.4 (X86-64) with KDE, and I'm encountering various graphical problems. This machine's been running SUSE versions since 11.0 on similar hardware with few major issues, and I did the 'upgrade' by a new install keeping only /home partition intact. This Server has 10GB memory. It has a PCI ATI ES1000 with 64MB and uses the radeon driver. It boots up fine under the monitor's correct resolution of 1600*1000, but

1) It flickers one time each 4 of 5 seconds
2) during works more and more memory is used : starting at 9% and going up to 51% after 20 minutes and I receive then allocation error in /var/log/messages

Ubuntu Networking :: USB Adapter Takes A Very Long Time To Connect Then Disconnected

Aug 6, 2011

I currently have a Nexxt Lynx 150 Wireless USB adapter attatched to one of my home destops to recieve my wifi signal, however, i have run into a speed bump in terms of getting it connected to my ubuntu 11.04. This adapter works perfectly in windows and on the ubuntu live cd, but, when i install ubuntu to my hard drive and try to connect to my network,

it just takes a very long time, then says, disconnected. My signal is WPA2-Personal protected. Here is a link to the adapter's home page > [URL] It seems to me that this is a driver problem. The cd that my adapter came with has drivers for linux on it, but i havent the slightest clue how to use them.

Ubuntu :: Won't Gnome Panel Clock Show Local Time / Why Is So?

Sep 30, 2010

When I travel, I would like to tell my laptop that I, as a user, am in a different time zone that what the OS may think is local. And I would like the clock on my desktop (default Gnome bar date/time display) to show the local time.

Instead, I currently have to use sudo and change the system time... (click on the clock, choose time settings, set system time -- there are no other choices given). The applet thing allows me to add other locations, but they only show up if I click on the icon, as extra times below the main one.

Am I missing something? Using the wrong app?

Fedora :: Show Clock To Civilian Time?

Nov 12, 2009

By default, Fedora 11 sets my clock to military time. For example it says 16:22. I would like it to show civilian time (or at least know how to do it) I logged into the clock settings and had to put in the root password, but couldn't find where you do this. If you scroll on the time for hours, it just goes from 0 to 23 and back, not to AM and PM like some others.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Newest Real Time Kernel To Show Up In Grub 2 (Karmic)?

Apr 26, 2010

I want to try out the realtime kernel to get my audio latency down. I have installed the realtime kernel packages according to the Ubuntu Studio preparation documentation here - I have also run sudo update-grubHowever, when I boot up, the realtime kernel option does not show up in grub2. The current kernel I am using is 2.6.31-17, but the only options in grub for it are -386 and -generic.

There is a previous entry of 2.6.31-9-rt which I had attempted to use previously (sometime last year) but if I select it, it doesn't even boot at all.I checked my /boot directory and there is no vmlinuz-2.6.31-17-rt file .... Which I am assuming is why it doesn't show up or add when I run update-grub ... But I am currently at a loss for how to actually get the 2.6.31-17 realtime kernel file and add it to grub2.

General :: Copied Files In Nfs Does Not Show The Right Time-stamp?

Mar 3, 2011

I have two systems running on linux. system one is running with RHEL 5.4/X86_64 hardware, system two is running with RHEL 5.3/i686 hardware. One filesystem is shared from system two and mounted as NFS on system one. Now when i do a copy from local filesystem to the NFS share from system one,it shows as follows


-rw-r--r-- 1 xkinved rbak1 30 Mar 3 2011 king

But if i do copy with -p option then it shows right time stamp. Both machines are running with slight(minutes) different in time. Does this could be cause for this problem? The problem is happening while i do FTP from some other machines too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Swapping Between ATI And NVIDIA Cards?

Mar 3, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 9.10. My work requires me to frequently swap video cards between an ATI Radeon 5870 card and an NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTX card. My question is: can the ATI driver (fglrx - catalyst 10.2) and the NVIDIA driver (nvidia 190.29) co-exist? Or do I need to reinstall the driver every time I change the card? I would like for the drivers to be able to co-exist so it would only be a matter of restarting my machine with the new card and choose the right xorg.conf file (perhaps from the GRUB menu).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Installing Nouveau On Both Cards?

Apr 26, 2011

My laptop is a Dell XPS 1340, it contains an integrated 9400M, and a discrete G210m. In trying to get vgaswitcheroo working with these cards, it seemed that every time I tried to switch outputs, my computer would freeze.

cd /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo
sudo chmod 777 switch

echo DIS > switch # Same with DDIS, same with OFF It seems like what would happen if vgaswitcheroo turned off the driver (nouveau) powering the card on PCI bus 3 (the 9400M), and attempted to turn on the driver powering the G210m, which doesn't exist.. I think? Can somebody confirm?
