During the install process, right after all of the ATI components for the graphics card were automatically installed, the next window automatically popped up asking me if I wish to install an additional proprietary ATI driver for this card, saying it may take advantage of more of the card's features, and it gave me a yes and no radio button. I just simply clicked on the "no" radio button, and the installation process continued on.
After everything finished, I booted right up into Mandriva with no problems whatsoever.
I'm not really a Linux guru yet, so I just left it at that. Perhaps later, when and if they update that particular proprietary ATI driver, I may try installing it via a tarball or RPM.
While we are on the subject, I did notice that only one of the video heads for the card was configured, and shows up in the hardware window accordingly. I would really like for both monitor outputs to be detected, not just one. But I guess I can live with that.
But I would like to know about your "workaround" that you mentioned when you got the message "no device was found".
