X is unable to start with "radeon" driver on my PowerMac G5, 7,3 with the
ultimate error "(EE) No devices detected.". I am curious because Xorg.0.log and
dmesg do not show obrious errorIMHO.

Forcing "fbdev" driver via the configfile works and X starts.

# cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/05-driver.conf
Section "Device"
        Identifier "Radeon"
        Driver "radeon"
        #Option "DRI" "2"
