What does this mean??

bit@Bit:~$ aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all
aticonfig: This program must be run as root when no X server is active


I just bought a new computer, had a computer shop make it, and went through all the steps but I can't tell what number my GPUs are.  I am mining successfully on my CPU so it works, but why won't my cards show up?

Try using sudo:
Code:
bit@Bit:~$ sudo aticonfig --odgc --adapter=all

Hmm...  I'm going to assume you really do have an instance of X running.  What's the value of $DISPLAY returned by the terminal window in which you are trying to run aticonfig

Code:
echo $DISPLAY

You should get something like
Code:
:0.0

I've found no way of managing the cards without an instance of X running.  At the very least I need a simple xorg.conf which points out my two cards and to run xinit in the background.  When I ssh into my miner I need to run
Code:
DISPLAY=:0
before aticonfig is fully functional.  sudo will help to an extent but there are still some things you will not be able to do.
