root@ghost:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/MACMINI amd64
Code:
pciconf -lv | grep -A 4 vga
vgapci1@pci0:0:2:0:     class=0x038000 card=0x00f0106b chip=0x01268086 rev=0x09 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = '2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller'
    class      = display
none0@pci0:0:22:0:      class=0x078000 card=0x72708086 chip=0x1c3a8086 rev=0x04 hdr=0x00

vgapci0@pci0:1:0:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x00e8106b chip=0x67411002 rev=0x00 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]'
    device     = 'Whistler [Radeon HD 6630M/6650M/6750M/7670M/7690M]'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA
So I thought I'd try the Radeon driver in a minimal xorg.conf as having no xorg.conf did not work:
Code:
Section "Device"
      Identifier "card 0"
      Driver      "radeon"
      BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
But that just produced an Xorg.log:

I'll omit the detailed info for the vesa driver - it also was a no go.

What finally worked was using xorg.conf with:
