what happened with single 4850 ? Do you have displays on both 4850 and 3300 when trying single 4850 ?
So is it really 9.5 and does it improve anything at all ? Will 4870 work ??
The link is probably 9.5; we'll know for sure when it's announced and the download page is updated.
The question is really will it work on *your* 4870; 4870s have been supported for almost a year. I think the folks on #ati might have been talking to you about the open source drivers rather than the Catalyst driver.
When 9.5 comes out, uninstall your current fglrx driver (if you haven't already done so), then build and install package(s) for your distro. Don't use the generic installer. Remember to run aticonfig --initial before starting X with the driver.
I believe there is a special option for aticonf --initial when you have a crossfire board. Should be in aticonfig -- help, post back if it isn't.
Haven't heard a thing about this bug being fixed: Has anyone been able to get a 4850x2 or 4870x2 working with the 9.5 driver and Ubuntu 9.04? (Or even 8.10 for that matter... I couldn't get it to work there either.)
EDIT: Update: 5/29 Got it working on 8.10:
I re-installed 8.10 and manually installed the 9.5 driver. (Create packages, etc.)
Then I did these 3 commands:
aticonfig --initial -f --adapter=all
aticonfig --cfa --adapter=all
aticonfig --cf=on --adapter=all
IT WORKS. Finally. But 9.04 was definitely not working before I reloaded. (Yet again.) I think I didnt' try 9.5 on 8.10... but had tried 9.4 which did not work.
So now... it's phoronix time!
