That's definitely unacceptable! Can you imagine how to setup a cluster with thousands of dual GPU nodes?
Even in a desktop machine with dual GPU cards, what if I have only one monitor?

2. Take a dual GPU machine. Connect both GPUs to monitors. Boot your machine, start X Windows, remove the monitor from the second GPU, and run a stream app on the second monitor (use BRT_ADAPTER). AFAIK, it should run. Now try again but remove monitor before you start.
I've run across this problem before and never had a good solution. I like the VGA adapter with the 3-75 ohm resisters tied to gnd. Wish I'd thought of that.
Does the card make an assumption about the resolution at that point or does it matter?

I am trying to figure out how to tell Brook+ to use device 0 or device 1 (Both firestream 9170 boards) in Linux CentOS 5.1. I have seen BRT_ADAPTER is what you change, but from what I understand it is an eviroment variable and I don't know how that applies to a Linux platform.
I used export BRT_ADAPTER=1 or 0 in my .bashrc file, will this tell the brook code to go to one device or the other? Also, is there a way to tell what is running on a card in Linux?

Yes, but then won't CAL only recognize 1 device, so wouldn't that defeat the purpose?
Ok, it looks like CAL sees 2 devices for a 2 Card CFX setup with CFX enabled and only 1 with CFX disabled. It seemed from previous documentation that we were suppose to disable CFX, seems confusing.
