Hi list,

I decided to restart X to get Firefox to run nicely with the new GTK,
but now X doesn't want to start anymore.
This is on a laptop with an ATI X1450 card (R5xx).

It crashes with signal 11 when initializing, Xorg.0.log doesn't give
much information except for (maybe):

> (EE) RADEONHD(0): Power Management: Cannot get known good chip configurations
> (EE) RADEONHD(0): rhdAtomGetDDCIndex: GPIO_DDC Index 6 exceeds maximum 5

The computer keeps running fine (e.g. over SSH), except that the
screen is blanked and unresponsive.

The attached file contains the full Xorg.0.log, /etc/make.conf,
/etc/X11/xorg.conf and the current list of installed packages.

Any hints?
