Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 613224
X server crashes constantly with three displays on single video card
Last modified: 2018-04-11 04:13:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I have an ATI HD5770 that has three monitors connected. Two via DVI, and one via an active displayport to DVI adapter. After booting, when X is started, it seems to continuously crash and restart, which results in display artifacts. X immediately starts up when one (any) display is disconnected from the video card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Lastest kernel and x11 drivers as of 07-04-2010
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect three displays to video card
3. observe X crash
Constant X crash
X starts up, displays login, and display span all three monitors
2x 1440x900 and 1x 1920x1080
Setup works on Windows 7, so it isn't a hardware issue. I understand that display drivers are difficult without manufacturer support, but basic usability would be appreciated.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

*** Bug 615123 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
