Default unable to use the radeonhd driver
Hi,
I'm using pc-bsd 7.1 with a Radeon X1650 Pro (RV535) graphics card. But I can only use it with the Vesa driver, not with the radeonhd driver. The X-server doesn't start (from my /var/log/messages) :

Every time I try to use the radeonhd driver, X won't take it and returns me to the screen where I have to take the vesa.
Any hints or help on how to get my Radeon card working with the radeonhd driver ?
Thanks.
