Dual Graphic Cards Linux/AOS4.1 FE ??

Post by gerograph »

Hello everybody,

I changed my Radeon 4650 into a HIS-Radeon-HD-7750 for a better warp3d and warp3d nova experience. Problem is my Linux Desktop gets really sluggish. The plan therefore ist to reintegrate my old Radeon 4650 as a second Graphik Card for Linux. In order to have MESA acceleration etc. As I am donnot know anything about Linux, here are my questions:

1) What do I have to change on the Amiga side?
2) What do I have to do on the Linux side?

Hi Gerograph,

I am sorry, I don't have any experiences with two graphics cards in an AmigaOne X1000. AlfredOne has successfully installed two graphics cards in his AmigaOne X1000. His X1000 has a Radeon R9-280X 3GB and a Radeon HIS4670 1GB DDR3. The Radeon R9-280X 3GB has hardware 3D acceleration on OS4.1 and the Radeon HIS4670 1GB DDR3 has hardware 3D acceleration on Linux.

Link to the test thread: forum.hyperion-entertainment.biz

Please contact AlfredOne via pm directly.

Thanks,
Christian

Running Linux on AmigaONEs can require some tinkering.

Hi Gerograph,

Julian also use 2 graphics cards in his AmigaOne X5000. Please look in the following thread: Spectre660's Linux downloads for the X5000

Cheers,
