One problem (besides the fact that I want my 9600 Pro) is that the Voodoo 5 needs a power connector that my G5 doesn't have. It only has SATA power connectors.


Actually it does have 1 normal/old power connector as the CD-drive is still IDE not SATA.

Splitters for these are penny-items on ebay or elsewhere.
1. Make an announcment.
2. Wait a while.
3. Check if it can actually be done.
4. Wait for someone else to do it.
5. Start working on it while giving out hillarious progress-reports.
6. Deny that you have ever announced it
7. Blame someone else

I've tried using an ATI AGP card with a voodoo 3 in a PCI slot (g5 pmac here) with no luck. It senses the voodoo 3, but when I launch a game (wipeout2097 for example) and select the voodoo 3 as the output, it "tries" to push an image to the other monitor via the voodoo but then freezes. This goes for any  number of things I tried pushing to the other screen. :(


I just had a similar expreience.

The butterfly logo shows up on the voodoo, but when I add a screen, it shows a little garbage on the top of the monitor and locks up.

Oh well, I guess single monitor only :(

Duh, why didn't I think to look there? lol

I guess I had it in my head that the CD would be SATA too.

Oh well, it would remove my 9600 and I've tried enough combinations that I'm tired of dealing with it for now, but maybe I'll give the Voodoo5 a shot when I get bored.

Here's a daft question then. You have to have the Radion driver in Devs - would it work if you had two?
Or has this question been answered?

BTW. MorphOS has added dual-head support for selected hardware now. So with certain setups you can have multi-display output with a single graphics card. More info here: https://library.morph.zone/Multi-display
