after having installed a fresh svn checkout and made sure that the
right libdha and libvidix are loaded I obtained:

Radeon_vid: Found chip: Radeon RV100 QY [Radeon 7000/VE]
[radeon] Device is disabled, ignoring
Radeon_vid: Can't find chip
[VO_SUB_VIDIX] Couldn't find working VIDIX driver.
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

in the sources of the driver the disabling is due to this block:

if ((lst[i].command & PCI_COMMAND_IO) == 0)
           printf("[radeon] Device is disabled, ignoring\n");

do you know what it is about?
