places not open, desktop blank after i installed the second radeon 6990.. pls help


i have 2 radeon 6990 and this what i did


1-
-- install ATI proprietary driver
Quote:
cd; mkdir tmp; cd tmp
wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/at...x86.x86_64.run
sh ati-driver-installer-11-9-x86.x86_64.run
follow installer; reboot
apt-get install cmake libroot-python-dev libboost1.40-all-dev
cd ~/tmp
wget http://download2-developer.amd.com/a...v2.5-lnx64.tgz
tar xvzf AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5-lnx64.tgz
tar xvzf AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5-RC2-lnx64.tgz
mv AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5-RC2-lnx64/ /opt
cd /
tar xvxf ~/tmp/icd-registration.tgz
edit .bashrc
vi ~/.bashrc
add the following to the end of .bashrc

Quote:
export AMDAPPSDKROOT=/opt/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5-RC2-lnx64/
export AMDAPPSDKSAMPLESROOT=/opt/AMD-APP-SDK-v2.5-RC2-lnx64/
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=${AMDAPPSDKROOT}lib/x86_64:${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}
export ATISTREAMSDKROOT=$AMDAPPSDKROOT
save; quit

Quote:
cd ~/tmp
svn co https://calpp.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/calpp calpp
cd calpp/trunk/
cmake .
make
make install

cd ~/tmp
svn checkout http://pyrit.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ pyrit_svn

Quote:
cd pyrit_svn/pyrit/
python setup.py build
python setup.py install

cd ~/tmp/pyrit_svn/cpyrit_calpp/

vi setup.py
i changed
VERSION = '0.4.0-dev'
to
VERSION = '0.4.1-dev'
( why i did that ? because: this is to match Pyrit version; otherwise will see version mismatch while running)

then i change
CALPP_INC_DIRS.append(os.path.join(CALPP_INC_DIR, 'include'))
to
CALPP_INC_DIRS.append(os.path.join(CALPP_INC_DIR, 'include/CAL'))

Quote:
python setup.py build
python setup.py install
pyrit list_cores

2- made the second radeon shown:
A- Open up /root/.bashrc and add export DISPLAY=:0 in the end line, i must did that in /home/username/.bashrc , but there is no files there si so i did it from the root dir
here is the file after the edit:
Code:
# ~/.bashrc: executed by bash(1) for non-login shells.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files (in the package bash-doc)
# for examples

# If not running interactively, don't do anything
if [[ -n "$PS1" ]]; then

# don't put duplicate lines in the history. See bash(1) for more options
# ... or force ignoredups and ignorespace
HISTCONTROL=ignoredups:ignorespace

# append to the history file, don't overwrite it
shopt -s histappend

# for setting history length see HISTSIZE and HISTFILESIZE in bash(1)
HISTSIZE=1000
HISTFILESIZE=2000

# check the window size after each command and, if necessary,
# update the values of LINES and COLUMNS.
shopt -s checkwinsize

# make less more friendly for non-text input files, see lesspipe(1)
[ -x /usr/bin/lesspipe ] && eval "$(SHELL=/bin/sh lesspipe)"

# set variable identifying the chroot you work in (used in the prompt below)
if [ -z "$debian_chroot" ] && [ -r /etc/debian_chroot ]; then
    debian_chroot=$(cat /etc/debian_chroot)

case "$TERM" in
    xterm-color) color_prompt=yes;;

# off by default to not distract the user: the focus in a terminal window

if [ -n "$force_color_prompt" ]; then
    if [ -x /usr/bin/tput ] && tput setaf 1 >&/dev/null; then
        # We have color support; assume it's compliant with Ecma-48
        # (ISO/IEC-6429). (Lack of such support is extremely rare, and such
        # a case would tend to support setf rather than setaf.)
        color_prompt=yes
    else
        color_prompt=
fi
fi
if [ "$color_prompt" = yes ]; then
    PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\[\033[01;31m\]\u@\h\[\033[00m\]:\[\033[01;34m\]\w\[\033[00m\]\$ '
else

export ATISTREAMSDKROOT=$AMDAPPSDKROOT
export DISPLAY=:0
B- sudo aticonfig --adapter=all --initial -f

c- Log off and login

d- now the problems started:
1- all files and folder not shown in the desktop, the right mouse not work in the desktop
2- all folders in places cant be open
3- after 2-3 reboot the desktop came blank and the background of the desktop came blank and all files and folder not shown in the desktop, the right mouse not work in the desktop and all folders in places cant be open.
4- i can open terminal and work normal , in the panel: application and system works
5- the only good thing that this is the result aticonfig --list-adapters

What distribution and desktop environment are you using? Neither KDE4 nor gnome3 support separate screens on separate monitors.

Well, clearly, you don't have just one screen:

Code:
        Screen      0  "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
        Screen         "aticonfig-Screen[1]-0" RightOf "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0"
        Screen         "aticonfig-Screen[2]-0" RightOf "aticonfig-Screen[1]-0"
        Screen         "aticonfig-Screen[3]-0" RightOf "aticonfig-Screen[2]-0"
Try to get the drivers working with just one. Once that works, add the next.
