I downgraded the AMD/ATi driver to version xf86-video-ati-6.14.0_1, I 
desperately need my boxes since I have to finish work.
Three different types of AMD/ATi graphics cards out of the same product 
class are not working with the new xf86-video-ati-6.14.1 and as the 
above mentioned link suggests, the solution is well known. I was 
wondering how this port could be so easily slipped into the repository ...

Since the patch Jun-uk Kim referred to is a GIT patch and it seems to 
work, is there a 'simple' way without installing the GIT stuff from 
ports to patch the defective port?

Thanks in advance,
Oliver
