TS won't recognize my video card

chickenwalker
I'm running an ATI Radeon HD 3450 video card (with DMS-59 port) and TS 5.5. If I include package xorg7-ati, I get the following on boot: "The system was not able to go graphical." If I include the package xorg7-vesa or package xorg7 in vesa mode, I can get the standard vesa resolutions. However, I need to run this at 1920x1080-24. 

Note that param bootresolution 1920x1200-24 actually displays the splash at 1920x1080 resolution when in vesa mode. What is going on here?

I'll include my build.conf below. Thanks...

Make sure the radeon module is added, loaded, and doesn't report any firmware issues in /var/log/messages or dmesg (you can do this in vesa mode)

If everything is OK there, you'll need to switch back to xorg7-ati and look at your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file for what's wrong.

Re: TS won't recognize my video card

You said no to the part during the initial setup-chroot where it asked about downloading the firmware.
You at least need the main firmware under /ts/ports/binary-core/fimware.  That's where the ATI/AMD ones you need live.
Do the pkgmk things (pkgmk -d, pkgmk -uf, pkgmk -u)

That was exactly it, thanks so much. Working brilliantly now!
