    2 x ATI FirePro Multi-View (8-monitor) install on CentOS 7.5


      Hello everyone

      I have continuous problems installing the driver 8.911.3.4_Linux_X32X64_120523a-140090C-Retail.zip for ATI FirePro Multi-View 2450 on CentOS 7.5 in dual video card configuration with 8 monitors connected.


      Can you tell me about the software packages I need to install before installing the driver?

      The video card in question, ie the 2450 firepromv, is compatible with CentOS 7.5 or in general with modern linux distributions in 8 monitor configuration?

      Thanks a lot.

          In this installation, I used only one ATI FirePro MV 2450 video card to start configuring the system with CentOS 7.5.

          Then I will add the second video card, always 2450, to have the 8-monitor system, which was previously supported with windows 7.
