I have a custom board, based on PowerPC ppc405ep CPU. On the board are 3 PCI devices: sATA, USB and PCI Slot. sATA, USB and PCI working already good, but still I have some troubles with a Graphic Controler on PCI slot. The graphic card is standard 3.3V PCI Radeon 7000. I have compile xorg 7.2, and try to start the X server with radeon driver. The X server starts, the monitor is found with the correct model, but no picture is appears. After several seconds the whole board freeze. After restart and system check no Xorg.0.log file is stored, but while X server starts, I see follow messages in serial console:

root at localhost:~$ X
_XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
_XSERVTransOpen: transport open failed for inet6/localhost:0
_XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: failed to open listener for inet6

The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:

I know that the monitor is found, because at first I was try with xorg 7.0, and the system stores log file. Nevertheless the error message was the same:

(EE) RADEON(0): Idle timed out, resetting engine...

My question is, what I need and I have to do, to run a standard PCI graphic card on PPC405 (PowerPC 4xx) system?

PS:I was try also the Kernel's framebuffer modules: RADEON and REDEON_OLD but also without any success.

Thank you in advance!
