Unfortunatly, dmesg doesn't say anything about drm :/

[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]# dmesg| grep -i drm
[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]# dmesg| grep -i radeon
[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]#


But if I try to load it manually says:

[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]# kldload -v drm
kldload: can't load drm: File exists
[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]# kldload -v radeon
kldload: can't load radeon: File exists
[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]# kldload -v radeon_drm
kldload: can't load radeon_drm: No such file or directory
[root at pcbsd /usr/home/oliver]#


my /boot/loader.conf:

linux_load="YES"
ulpt_load="YES"
#vesa_load="YES"
#splash_pcx_load="YES"
#bitmap_load="YES"
#bitmap_name="/boot/loading-screen.pcx"
hw.ata.atapi_dma="1"
autoboot_delay="5"
kern.ipc.shmseg=1024
kern.ipc.shmmni=1024
drm_load="YES"
radeon_load="YES"
radeon_drm_load="YES"
legal.intel_iwi.license_ack=1
legal.intel_wpi.license_ack=1
wpi_load="YES"

permissions are set allright to 0666.

No difference running glxgears as root or user. Runs with about 2600
frames (linux 11600 Frames)

Any ideas?
