Need Help ATI drivers ubuntu 13.10 - Quad 7990 setup
no worries dude.

the symptoms you have described means there is a gpu that is unresponsive, and the driver is stuck in iowait trying to communicate with that gpu. there are a couple reasons for this.

the first reason is that sometimes the driver doesn't install quite properly, but doesn't provide any error message to let you know. just part of the AMD quality control we've all come to know and love.

so first uninstall the driver:

stop lightdm
rm -f /etc/X11/xorg.conf*
amdconfig --uninstall=force

then go back through just the driver installation part of the wiki:

make sure you reboot after re-installing the driver.

if the problem persists, it may be that you have a bad gpu. so i would then recommend taking the system down to one card and testing, then add another card and test, then add another and test, so on and so forth.

but the method in the wiki is proven, we've personally built out scores of boxes with those exact steps without issue, and i know many other hashcat users have followed this guide without incident as well. and we know that this works with quad 7990s as well because we've built around 20 quad 7990s boxes so far, and they all work flawlessly.
