I suspect the radeon driver is still blacklisted from when you had fglrx
installed.  Please make sure any remnants of fglrx are uninstalled and radeon
is not blacklisted.

All of the chip families are listed (R100, RV350, BARTS, TURKS, etc.).  Just
just listed a selection of the marketing names for reference because there are
so many.

You are the assignee for the bug.
