P650 + P690 on the same PC

Postby azer » Thu Feb 12, 2009 6:27 pm


I'd like to know with the P650 and P690 can be setup in the same PC ?

I have successfully configured the P690 (QID) with 4 monitors, but, when I try to add another one
that is connected on the P650, the linux crash without any logs.

I'm trying to configure the P650 alone, but any of my monitors want to start.

any idea ?

Basically, that should be possible.

Does it really crash, e.g. giving you a kernel panic?
Let's try to configure the P650 with one monitor first in stand alone mode first to see if that works.

How are both cards connected? Both via PCI-Express?
Can I see the output of `lspci` and your current /etc/X11/xorg.conf as well as the file /var/log/Xorg.0.log when you try to start one monitor on the P650?
