Fedora + ATI + eyeinfinty + UNoffical drivers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hiya all ive been doing a bit of looking around and i cant get to the bottom of this probelm and wondering if i could ask for some help


The problem is i need to purchase cards for business that support 3 screen, so they need to be cheap, the ati cards seam great, and the 5450 seams awsome fro the price. Twill be running a dvi+vga+displayport (using the saphire adapter found here > http://www.ebuyer.com/238403-sapphir...e-44000-02-40r)


We use Fedora in the company, and we are NOT allowed to use the catalyst drivers TT_TT (life would be so much easier wouldmnt it ..) so my question is will eyeinfinty work to give us the three screens? If not what are the other options.

At the moment we are aschiving 3 screen goodness using a firegl 2400 howver these are having problems with fedora 15.


Any help would be hugley appricated as for some reason they are looking to order everything in large bulk soon >,< (anyone with this setup or card and willing to try it)

As i said any help would be hugley appriated !

Without catalyst driver is impossible to setup 3 monitors. I played around
with Firestream 9350 using opensuse before with my old job but without
ati driver can't do anything with it. But even there's a way you can force
Xorg.conf to use 3 monitors the picture still not good.


I am curious though can you try:
#init 3
#Xorg -configure
#mv /root/xorg.config.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
#startx

I understand the reasoning for no ATI drivers, but if you buy the hardware, you might as well use it properly...

thanks . Ill relay this up ^_^. Its not that i dont want to its higher ups that dont want too to keep in line with the companies open source policy as im just a student placement and ive just myself so confused >_ some people say yep there support in the open drivers others say nope need closed dirvers *sigh*

The cards they were getting were the firegl 2400 which were £200 a pop the pc's are worth less than that so ive ordered 1 5670 with the saphire adapter and hopefully will get it to work im thinking of making the machine and doing 3 partions one with each driver set so they can see what it looks like


Im sure when i comes to saving around £600 now and £140 on ever pc purchase in the future they will come round to the way of thinging ATI aint gona put a virus/spyware in there drivers

And hey if it dosnt work i will probs buy the card + adapter off the business to but in my lasses build

Got the card and dropped it in the pc, Using the sapphire adapter

the closed drivers did not work for me for some reason the screens wouldn't update, so i installed the drivers and now 3 screens works great

So you can use 3 screens on fedora with the open source drivers! with no config needed ^_^

(I just updated so if anyones looking for the same they get a success story )
