Re: Dual head setup

Hello Hans,

Hi Greg, thanks for your reply

To get my video card working and stable, I had to use the fglrx module
provided by ATI. (http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
Mine is a Radeon 7000 - not supported by fglrx, but supported by the
opensource radeon driver.

You are right, I didn't notice at the time.

Before I did all the above, I did get the dual head working under Xorg
with the radeon module, but it would frequently crash with this message
in Xorg.0.log:
(EE) RADEON(0): FIFO timed out, resetting engine...
This xorg.conf is also included below.

It would be unstable because the radeon module has little more than basic
support for the X600.  Was this dual head in an extended desktop mode (as
opposed to mirror)?  Do you by any chance still have this config file

Huh, great - I included two xorg.conf files in my previous email, one that crashed with the radeon module and the second one that works with the fglrx module.

Here is my config.
Thanks, I'll try adapting mine with your one's info tonight and see how it

Good luck!
