Hi all,

Running 11.3-RELEASE-p3

I just had a power failure on a machine without a ups (temporary quarters
due to broken leg).  The machine had been up since about Nov 6 when it
was updated, running X the whole time I think.

Unfortunately, ufs filesystems were messed up.
Rebooted single user and ran fsck, things came up but radeon driver
no longer loads.  Unfortunately I don't have the last good log file
from when it did load to compare with.  Files in /lost+found are all
zero length.

from dmesg:

 From Xorg.0.log:

xorg.conf has no Card0 set up, but I'm pretty sure it was running ok
without it before.

The particular device is a Radeon 5500, which is not (no longer?) listed
in the supported devices from the driver; but I'm "somewhat confident"
that it was working before because of a hardware mode change which caused
the type on the display at boot time to change to a much smaller font.
I have a commented out line in xorg.conf that says "Redwood PRO [Radeon
5500 series]" which I think is what Xorg.0.log used to show in the list of
supported devices but no longer does.

Thoughts on how to proceed?
