Dear kind DragonflyBSD users,
I have managed to install DragonflyBSD 6.0.1 on an old machine with
integrated video on the motherboard.
The machine was running Dragonfly 5.2, but I wanted to upgrade it to
latest. This has resulted in having no X.

vendor = 'Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI]'
device = 'RS740 [Radeon 2100]'
class = display
subclass = VGA
The monitor am Acer Monitor which it is connected to supports 1600x900
output as follows:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1600 x 900, maximum 16384 x 16384
DisplayPort-0 disconnected primary (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

I have installed xfce and when I type startx I get a blank screen, and
pressing CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE does nothing(maybe depracated),
I have to reset machine or turn off holding power button. Any
suggestions as to how to get this working are appreciated.
