Hey all, I was having an issue with ubuntu where my mouse moving to the right of my screen caused x11 to crash.  To fix, I edited my xorg.conf file and removed all monitors and screens after the 1st, leaving all the devices.  When I rebooted, I could no longer mine on the 2nd and 3rd card.

I can do aticonfig --list-adapters, and all the adapters appear as expected.  When I run poclbm.py, I see only my first gpu, and my cpu.

I tried to do an aticonfig --initial --adapter=all, and it completed successfully, but I have the same problem.  I also tried reconfiguring, making, and installing pyopencl, to no avail. 

Any ideas what else I can try?

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

I reverted to my original xorg.conf file, but I still have the issue with the gui crashing when I move the mouse off the first screen

Is it possible to run phoenix or any other miner without loading x11?  I tried simply not loading the gui, but then my cards aren't detected.  This is worse than I thought though, because even if I disconnect the mouse so I don't have to worry about it moving off the screen, it still crashes every few minutes

For all who didn't get the point at the first view:

Login into your desktop and you'll see your card Wink.

You could try disabling hardware accelerated pointer drawing, as described here:
http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=21301.msg272151#msg272151
If that doesn't help, post your xorg.0.log, and I'll take a look at it.

Edit: Note that you need to post the xorg.0.log from after xorg crashes, not while it's running.
