Running Ubuntu 13.10. When I hook up the card to a monitor through HDMI, cgminer detects the card. When I unplug the HDMI cable from the monitor, the system throws a blank screen. I can ssh in from another computer, but when I run cgminer, cgminer tells me that the card isn't detected:
- "clDevicesNum returned error, no GPUs usable"
- "0 GPU devices max detected"
From various online forums, people have stated that dummy plugs won't work on the R9 290x because this card has only digital inputs (AMD got rid of analog), so the resistor trick won't work here even with DVI-VGA passive adapters.
Furthermore, people have said that with newer cards like mine, dummy plugs aren't necessary.
The only difference I see is that I'm using ubuntu while the people in the forums were using Windows 7 or 8. However, I'm using Catalyst 13.12, so I should be good?
What am I doing wrong? Can someone help me?
