(Google translation, je ne parle que le franchouilleglais ;) )
Using two screens for some time with no problem.
1- A principal iiyama 1024x768 screen dashboard.
2- Belinea work in a 1280x1024 screen.
This on a graphics card ATI Radeon HD4770 (driver "Radeon HD 4870 and earlier")
Under Mageia4 to kernel-core 3.12.25-3.mga4 no worries and independent configuration screens are configured.
With the arrival of kernel-3.14.* Kernels the system freezes consistently 10, 15 seconds after login. Also with a visually successful display, but the keyboard and mouse do not work (Ctrl + Alt + F1 ...). The discs "scratching" more. No log for recovery. Reset mandatory.
I installed Mageia5 Cauldron. And surprise, it works very well again (kernel-desktop-3.17.4-1.mga).
But with the arrival of the kernel-desktop-3.18.*. I found exactly the same with figeages Magei4. So I roll in kernel-desktop-3.17.4-1.mga5
To sum up:
kernel-desktop-3.12.25-3.mga4 2 screens OK
kernel-desktop-3.14.23-1.mga4 2 screens KO !!
kernel-desktop-3.14.24-1.mga4 2 screens KO !!
Install Mageia5 le 16/11/2014
kernel-desktop-3.17.4-1.mga5 2 screens OK
kernel-desktop-3.18.0-0.rc7.1.mga5 2 screens KO !!
kernel-desktop-3.18.0-0.rc7.2.mga5 2 screens KO !!
kernel-desktop-3.18.0-1.mga5 2 screens KO !!
kernel-desktop-3.18.0-2.mga5 2 screens KO !!

Steps to Reproduce:
Pascal, do you still have an issue with kernel-desktop-3.18.1-1.mga5 and fglrx-kernel-3.18.1-desktop-1.mga5 ?
Pascal, est-ce que tu as toujours le mÃªme problÃ¨me avec kernel-desktop-3.18.1-1.mga5 et fglrx-kernel-3.18.1-desktop-1.mga5 ?
fglrx does not support hw < 5000 series
Ah thank Thomas, so I guess XFdrake needs fixing?
Nope, "Radeon HD 4870 and earlier" only configures free driver
The ProblÃ¨me is the same with kernel-desktop-3.18.1-1.mga5 and free driver
Donc Ã ce jour cela ne fonctionne toujours pas.
En echec avec:
Je reste donc en : kernel-desktop-3.17.4-1.mga5
Problem solved. Under kernel "kernel-desktop-3.18.3-1.mga5-1-1.mga5.x86_64" and especially updates of these past two days. Thank you.
Well no. Restart this morning. Freezing income. While it worked all day yesterday.
Since you are using the free driver, does the kernel-3.19.0-0.rc6.1.mga5 in updates_testing work any better ?
This problem is not solved with 3.19.0-desktop-0.rc6.1.mga5 . It is even more unstable.
First I have this problem : http://troumad.org/OOo/20150131_152835.jpg
After, the server X blocks.
I can not always do Ctrl-Alt-F3 for have a shell screen to do "systemctl restart dm". But, with a another computer, I can take control of the computer with the command ssh and after do "systemctl restart dm". After that, the server X restart unstable.
For the picture http://troumad.org/OOo/20150131_152835.jpg.
When the computer boot, the screen of the mother have problem, the screen of the hard boot have problem (I can take photo if you want).
This problem remains after a boot, with 1 ou 2 screen. So that it disappears , I boot with windows (2008 server SP 2, my windows). During the boot the screen are not good (if you want, I can take photo), after, if I open a window , it cleans the screen. And now I can reboot with Linux and this problem no longer appears at startup.
Since yesterday I tested the "kernel-3.19.0-0.rc6.1.mga5." Apart from a freeze with "systemsettings" tool to configure the dual screen (the tool is sensitive and delicate) I have not found a malfunction yesterday. So this morning restarting double screen and it works correctly. To be continued ...
unstable with kernel-desktop-3.17.4-1.mga5-1-1.mga5.x86_64.rpm and 2 screens.
the photos :
boot, the mother board : http://troumad.org/OOo/CM.jpg
grub : http://troumad.org/OOo/grub.jpg
grub : http://troumad.org/OOo/grub_2.jpg
windows boot : http://troumad.org/OOo/boot_windows.jpg
windows boot : http://troumad.org/OOo/X_windows_boot.jp
windows screen : http://troumad.org/OOo/X_windows_root.jpg
After, I open a window and all become good. I can reboot and run with the next kernel, but only one screen.
I think that the new kernel ( 3.19.0-desktop-0.rc7.3.mga5 ) is goot with 23 screen.
mcc found that I have a "RV770 [Radeon HD 4850]". But, when it has found this, it has write in my bash :
Warning: skip "is_pciexpress" field => "1"
Warning: skip "sysfs_device" field => "/sys/bus/pci/devices/0000:01:00.0"
Warning: skip "nice_bus" field => "PCI Express"
Warning: skip "Handlers" field => "HASH(0x484f440)"
modinfo: ERROR: Module Card:ATI Radeon HD 4870 and earlier not found.
(see : http://www.mageialinux-online.org/forum/topic-19382-2.php#m188865 )
With the new kernel ( vmlinuz-3.19.0-desktop-1.mga5 ) it's not good.
vmlinuz-3.19.2-desktop-1.mga5 was not good. The computer with this problem is not use every day.
Today the last kernel ( vmlinuz-3.19.2-desktop-2.mga5 ) scrath with 1 screen only :(
