Disable Crossfire on 5970

Discussion created by jbinski on Mar 9, 2010

I am using CentOS 5.4 with an ATI 5970.  I have tried multiple times to disable crossfire through the following commands:

aticonifg --adapter=all  --cf=off

and do a reboot but then when the command

aticonfig --lscs

[root@zeus ~]# aticonfig --lscs
    Candidate Combination:
    Master: 6:0:0
    Slave: 5:0:0
    CrossFire is enabled on current device
    CrossFire Diagnostics:
    There is CrossFire Side port connection between GPUs
    CrossFire can work with P2P write through peer aperture
    Dongle Capabilities: support PASSTHROUGH |INTERLINK_SW_AFR | INTERLINK_AUTO_AFR | INTERLINK_BLACKING | INTERLINK_SUPERAA

 

It says crossfire is enabled, even though

aticonfig --lsch

[root@zeus ~]# aticonfig --lsch

CrossFire chain for adapter 0, status: disabled
  0. 06:00.0 ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series
  1. 05:00.0 ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series

says it is diabled.
