I have an ATI Radeon Club3d RV370 X300SE graphics adapter in my system
running FreeBSD-6.2RC2 amd64.

I compiled a custom kernel with radeondrm support which seems to work (printed
by Kernel):
drm0: <ATI Radeon RV370 X300 SE> port 0xe000-0xe0ff
 mem 0xf0000000-0xf7ffffff,0xfebf0000-0xfebfffff irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci6
info: [drm] Initialized radeon 1.24.0 20060225
pci6: <display> at device 0.1 (no driver attached)

But when I try to configure xorg with these settings:

    Load       "glx"
    Load       "dri"
Section "Device"
    Identifier  "Card 1"
    Driver      "radeon"
    VendorName  "ATI Technologies Inc"
    BoardName   "RV370 5B60 [Radeon X300 (PCIE)]"

xorg fails to initialise DRM:

(WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:6:0:1) found
error: [drm:pid1351:radeon_do_init_cp] *ERROR* Cannot initialise DRM on this car
This card requires a new DDX for 3D

Where do I get this DDX?
