I've recently acquired a radeon 9800pro and am now trying to get it working on XFree86 with no luck.
I'm using XFree86-4.3.0 on FreeBSD 4.8 ... I've added the following to my config file: Section "Device" Identifier "Card0" Driver "radeon" BusID "PCI:1:0:0" EndSection
When I run startx I get the following error: (WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
If I change the busid in the config to PCI:1:0:1 I then get an error complaining that no Device section for PCI:1:0:0 is found
The card does have dual output but I'm only trying to use the main VGA connector. Am I even using the right device for the 9800pro ?
(Oops.) I guess my previous observation that the 9800 is not fully supported may be irrelevant.
You can verify the PCI address of your video card by doing "pciconf -lv".

My Radeon 9500 (upgraded to a 9700 in Win with a utility called Riva Tuner - don't know what if any difference this makes in FreeBSD) works with XFree86, both latest port and source cvsup-ed as of yesterday, though I get the same message re "No matching Device section...."
Is it an AGP card? Do you happen to have "device agp" in your kernel? Sorry, I (obviously) don't know much about this, and that's all I can think of.
