Created attachment 37792 [details]
shar-file with Xorg.0.log, xorg.conf.new, radeonhd-session

The RadeonHD driver crashes in LVDSEnable when trying to call Private->SetBacklight.
This element is zero, despite Private->BlLevel is 192.

Xorg was started in gdb with
     r -logverbose 7 -config /home/elmar/xorg.conf.new -retro
The file xorg.conf.new was generated by
     Xorg -configure
The driver radeonhd was compiled with -O0 -g
Version of the driver 1.3.0

Platform is FreeBSDD 8.1, copiled in /usr/ports/x11-drivers/xf86-video-radeonhd-1.3.0
Only change was in Makefile CFLAGS=-O0 -g

Maschine was a HP/Compaq nw8440

The attached file contains the X config file, the Xorg log file and a gdb session with a backtrace.
Comment 1 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-10-16 15:59:10 UTC
Does this issue occur with the preferred ati driver (xf86-vide-ati)?  If so, please move this to the Driver/Radeon component.  

Development of radeonhd has pretty much halted and development focus is on the ati driver.  Please see http://www.x.org/wiki/radeonhd

If the issue does not exist in the ati driver (or if there is no response to this message), this bug will be closed as WONTFIX unless someone contributes a patch.
Comment 2 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2011-11-07 15:31:01 UTC
Closing due to lack of response.  Please reopen and move to the Driver/Radeon 
component if this issue persists with xf86-video-ati
