  • Problems with Ati 3870x2 and 8.02 Driver

    I heard that one gpu of my ati 3870x2 would work with the most recent fglrx, so I decided to give it a try but all I get is an error and back to vesa. Im running 64bit gutsy and here is a snip from my x log:

    (II) Primary Device is: PCI 04:00:0
    (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Version Identifier:8.45.5
    (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Release Identifier: UNSUPPORTED-8.455.2
    (II) ATI Proprietary Linux Driver Build Date: Feb 1 2008 10:11:56
    (WW) fglrx: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:4:0:0) found
    (EE) No devices detected.

    Fatal server error:
    no screens found

    Has anyone tried this card and been successful? Do I just need to trick it into thinking its a single 3870? Any help would be much appreciated.

    HD3870X2 and FGLRX!


    I don't think the ATI fglrx driver (8.2) support the X2 version, I had to install the RadeonHD driver to get my card up and running.

      yeah radeonhd works great with the X2, suspend too. The lack of compiz fusion is drivin me crazy tho
