3 Monitors
 
There is tonnes of information on achieving dual monitors, both on separate cards and with dual heads.


I'm struggling to get my 3rd monitor running. Currently I'm using a Radeon9800 with both it's dual heads (having played with the fglrx drivers). I have Radeon 7000 PCI and no matter what I do I can't get it running with either the radeon of fglrx drivers.

I keep getting

no matching device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:7:0)

I've included the relvant part of my xorg.conf file.

Code:

Any suggestions or prods in the right direction appreciated.

P.S
lspci returns busid 1:07:0 for the 7000 and 3:00:0 for the 9800

Problem was solved by omitting the Screen 2 from the device section.


However I now have other issues to resolve.
