aticonfig can't see second garphics card

Postby tmahring on Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:41 pm

Hi. I have two graphics cards in my system, one AMD Radeon HD 6950 and one Radeon HD 2600. I want to use them with 3 monitors, two of them connected to the 6950 and one to the 2600.
Both cards list fine when I do lspci:
Code: Select all
lspci
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Cayman PRO [Radeon HD 6950]
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV630 [Radeon HD 2600 Series]

however, the aticonfig utility can only see the 6950:
Code: Select all
aticonfig --list-adapters
* 0. 01:00.0 AMD Radeon HD 6900 Series

* - Default adapter


so obviously aticonfig --adapter=all --initial also only creates the config for the 6950 and amdcccle also only sees the 6950.
Has anyone a clue what I'm doing wrong ?
Do I maybe need to tell the fglrx module somehow that there is a second card ? I only had the 6950 installed when i installed the fglrx drivers.
