I just installed slackware 13 and tried new packages but detection fails.

(II) MACH64: Driver for ATI Mach64 chipsets
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 00 at 00:10:0
mach64: card at 1:6:0 is claimed by a Device section
xf86AllocateScreen - xf86Screens[0]->pScreen = (nil)
Enable access 0
(==) MACH64(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(**) MACH64(0): Option "force_pci_mode" "1"
(==) MACH64(0): Using XAA acceleration architecture
(WW) MACH64: Mach64 in slot 1:6:0 could not be detected!

And card is disabled. So detection fails because reading from port gives 
But card works fine if i set it to primary card then resources are enabled.
This also works fine on slackware 12.2 and drivers 
xf86-video-mach64-6.8.2 works fine.
Is this problem with libpciaccess ? Can anyone point me to right 
direction so i can fix it myself.
