Default Radeon HD 5xxx

I am now an owner of a Radeon HD 5870.
But... lspci reports it as:

VGA compatible controller:
ATI Technologies Inc Device 6898

I am running testing.

Also, the feature matrix linked to by
the ATI page on the wiki indicates that
HD 5xxx cards are supported by
xf86-video-ati, as does the wiki. What's
the situation on this?

How about you try and find out? Is there a reason why you can't?

The problem I'm having is something
crashes after executing startx, crashing
the system as well. To get back up and
running I have to hard reboot.
Xorg.0.log is empty.

Support for ATI Evergreen gpus is coming along well now, you should be able to
use it just fine. Do you have an xorg.conf set up?


Try running X manually:

Xorg :0 -br -nolisten tcp vt7 -logfile $HOME/Xorg.log -logverbose 99

I'm not sure what the firmware situation is for that gpu, but do you have
linux-firmware installed?
