  • Catalyst 10.7 and Eyefinity

    Is not working on RHEL 5.5 / CentOS 5.5...

    Hardware: Radeon HD5770 with three HP LA2405wg connected via DVI+DVI+Displayport

    Code:
    $ aticonfig --query-monitor
    Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
      Connected monitors: tmds1, dfp3, dfp4
      Enabled monitors: dfp3, dfp4
    Code:
      --enable-monitor=STRING,STRING
            Setting current monitor to be enabled. Only 2 displays
            can be enabled at the same time. Any displays
            that are not on the list will be disabled.
            STRING can be one of the following set, separated 
            by commas:
    Hmm only two displays can be enabled at the same time? How is this supposed to work? CCC sees the third disabled screen but still refuses to drag it in to enable it.

    Please post your Eyefinity experience here...
    If it works please post info on what you are running.

      The question is more like which should I use ?

      Tried dragging the monitor in CCC. That didnt work.

      Code:
      aticonfig --enable-monitor=tmds1,dfp3,dfp4
      Result: tmds1 (via displayport) and dfp3 becomes enabled and dfp4 goes to sleep.

      dfp3 and dfp4 is now configured in big desktop mode for the moment.

      xorg.conf was deleted and recreated by fglrx installer.

        Just got home from work and going to give this a try.

        3x Dell P2210H on an HD5870 - 2x DVI and 1x DP

        Fresh install of 10.04 64 - soon as it's updated and the kids are settled in bed I'm going to work on it.

          Ok... I installed 10.04 from scratch on a new partition, then let it update packages on its own. I downloaded and installed 10.7 from ATI's site, installed and rebooted. All three monitors were working (cloned displays) on reboot. Made my changes in the CCC panel (little different than windows, but was easy to figure out in less than 60 seconds), restarted again for good measure and here was the result.

            Sorry it's 1 2210 and 2 2208's, yeah I know one is 16x9 and two are 16x10 but oh well, better than two monitors right?

              Err... well there's an image and a message that it works good on my system there if it ever gets approved.

              HD5870 with 2x DVI and 1x DP. Updated 10.04 Desktop install, then installed 10.7 ATI driver directly from their website. Everything worked the first try and, for the most part, mimics the functionality of the windows version at this point.

              So yes. I am using 3 monitors off a single card as I type this.

                Works for me, after a bit of fiddling..amdcccle would segfault everytime i tried to save a change. so i worked on my xorg.conf manually.

                I have a radeon HD5800, 2 DVI and 1 DP

                Monitors:
                (II) fglrx(0): Monitor name: DELL U2410
                (II) fglrx(0): Monitor name: DELL 2005FPW
                (II) fglrx(0): Monitor name: DELL 2005FPW

                I built the lucid packages from the binary installer: ati-driver-installer-10-7-x86.x86_64.run

                fglrx_8.753-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
                fglrx-amdcccle_8.753-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
                fglrx-dev_8.753-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb
                fglrx-modaliases_8.753-0ubuntu1_amd64.deb

                dpkg -i fglrx*.deb and modified my xorg.conf as such:

                  I'll have to try the manual way with xorg.conf as 10.7 behaves just as 10.6 when trying to enable the third screen. I can have any of the LCDs enabled but only two at once.

                  Have this been tested and known to work on RHEL 5 / CentOS ?

                    Should work fine if you have the latest fglrx and compatible xorg-server.

                    I have
                    xserver-xorg 1:7.5+5ubuntu1
