--- Comment #10 from erhard_f at mailbox.org ---
Finally sorted it out with your help from here. The main issue was "VGA
Arbitration" in the kernel-config, Device Drivers -> Graphics support. On my
config (PowerMac G5, AGP graphics card) I need to have CONFIG_VGA_ARB=y

With CONFIG_VGA_ARB=y in combination with CONFIG_DRM_FBDEV_EMULATION=y and
CONFIG_FB_OF=y I get a working concole and working X with "radeon"-driver.
Other framebuffer drivers must not be selected in the kernel config.

With these options set correctly no xorg.conf is needed. The framebuffer
console switches from Open Firmware to the radeon driver and the output looks
like this:
