    Sounds like the card isn't being initialized.
    Do you have all the packages/drivers installed ?
    Have you setup the Xservers file for two devices ?

    You should be able to run two-headed.
    (but without Xinerama since the cards are not identical)

    thanks for your reply. Before installing elite3d, i'm using on-board ati
    xl, with sun xorg. You suggest i should use Xsun instead of Xorg? but
    i'm not sure there are such drivers for solaris x86?

    There's no Solaris x86 drivers available for that card. You'ld be
    better off with a standard PC graphics card. (nVidia if you want
    accelarated OpenGL support.)
