Hi all,

unfortunately FedoraC3 supports only Dual Head for ATI 9800pro.
Did anybody gets a ATI- Card run in Big Desktop- mode without deinstalling Xorg and installing XFree86?

TIA

Kind regards

Hi grandmasterB and welcome. ATI makes great cards. It's a shame they don't support us more. I have an ATI card working with Fedora Core 2, but its an old Mach 64.

If you want to cut down on a huge amount of headaches, I would consider going out and purchasing an Nvidia. They do give Linux users a great deal of support, and just about everything they make will work with Linux.

Hey Dapper Dan,

thanks for the bland words.

Actually i dont care, if its an ATI or whatever.
So, i agree with u, stuff whitch supports the linux- community should be bought preferential.

Im just be astonished, cause the "Dual Mode" works, even if the config- Window in GRUB says its disabled.
If u correct it in the Xorg.conf u get teh same results,
except thats enabled in the Screen- config- dialog on GRUB.
