Only one? That's strange. You mean

That depends on your definition of succesful. I run an X850 radeon in that 
slot. There's no picture before X is up, and X startup alone takes two 
minutes thirty seconds or so. Glxgears performs at 20% of the possible 
maximum, most probably because I'm not able to get a single interrupt from 
the card. But there is a picture and some acceleration, so you may call that 

Which card do you use? Do you see interrupts from it? (make sure 
glxinfo/driinfo says dri: yes and run e.g. glxgears)
