    3870x2 (8.5 CCC) wont work on newly installed 8.04

    Its unbelievable for a graphic-card reseller to through a high-end graphic-card on the market without a functionable Driver for linux especially for ubuntu.
    Im waiting since month to get finally work this card.

    I tried it with 8.3, radeonhd, 8.4 and the new version 8.47 (8.5).

    The hours I spended made me crazy.
    I tried it in all kind of ways, that youll possibly find in the internet.
    I tried it with brand new installation, gutsy gibbon, and hardy, old, differnce kernel-versions
    I tried the ati-driver and the ubuntu way also.
    I tried ever possibility i found in the internet, also to hack the driver.
    What I get is always the same error.

    No device......

    Here is my System.

    MSI 965 Platinum
    Intel 6420 Core Duo 2,13GHz
    Corsair 2 x 1GB (800, 5,5,5,12).
    Apple Cinema HD Monitor 30".

    Its now time to say goodbye ATI, and welcome NVIDIA. I`ll take my old NVIDIA 8800 GTS and have fun under Linux.

    Thats what i want to say now, because im totally frustrated to lost 450 Euro for nothing.

    Sincerely Mardenkain

    So, Gotthard, you are running the ATI binary driver, radeonHD or fglrx?

    With latest driver will work. My card is working. I tried it on Slackware, openSuse, Ubuntu, Kubuntu and it is working very well but only single GPU. I tried also to install wine and run some windows games and they are working too.

    Dude i just gotta say WOOO YES, u me hero! hehe.
    My 3870x2 would only run in 800x600 with weird colors on my 22" screen, so i bet you can imagine how happy i am to finally get something to work..

    Now it's just to get some kind of 3d to work.

    Does anyone know how to remove "AMD Unsupported Hardware" logo on ATI driver 8.4?? My Radeon HD 3870 x2 works with ATI driver 8.4 not with 8.5 but only when I add chipId

    So, I downloaded a new ISO Ubuntu Version 8.04 and burned it today.

    I formatted in the installer-Partition-Maker the "/" root directory and the "/home" directory to avoid earlier settings that could probably make problems.
    After that I started in Vesa-Mode a X Session.

    Then I installed the following programs with this command:

    sudo apt-get install build-essential git-core configure-debian automake autoconf xorg-dev libtool mc

    after that i downloaded the new radeonhd-driver with this command:

    become root in any way.
    Either with sudo gnome-terminal or with sudo passwd; followed by a new root-password and then su with the new root passwd.

    cd /root
    git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-radeonhd


    after some time I installed the driver with following commands:

    cd /root/xf86-video-radeonhd
    ./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr/
    make
    make install


    then I run mc and put easily following line in the section DEVICE in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Section DEVICE
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "radeonhd"
    EndSection


    saved the xorg.conf and make a reboot.

    And what should I say? : IT WORKS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    After month i got my wished resolution of 2560x1600 with my PC.
    I could only say thanks to u all and that i gave u and me a chance.

    May God bless u and thanks for this work on the radeonhd-driver.

    Hardy ships with radeonhd 1.0, but I'm not sure if that version supports the X2. Anyway, their is no Crossfire in Linux, yet, so with that in mind, it's silly to purchase a card that needs that technology to work. Don't people still advocate "research before you buy" these days? "Hoping" that the hardware will somewday be supported is all on you, so it's rather silly to demand support. Still, the card is somewhat supported by radeonhd, so not all is hopeless (thank God for open source right?).
    In a distro like Ubuntu, fglrx should not have many major problems, specially if you generate packages yourself or use the installer; the Hardware Manager in Ubuntu never seemed to work for me. I have been using fglrx for my ATI cards with no issues whatsoever, with minor problems here and there which I have often found solutions for. Currently using 8.5 with a HD2900XT under a 2.6.25 kernel with no problems, and a 200M also with no major problems (except for slow scrolling in FF). I have 4GB of RAM on my main system and all of it is recognized and working, but I pressume the problem has to do with certain MB chips rather than with fglrx itself.
