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:
Section "Device"
    Identifier                          "ATI Graphics Adapter connector 0"

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


However I now have other issues to resolve.
