Hi all - <br>I think this is a RadeonHD issue, not so much a PC-BSD
issue, but I couldn&#39;t find many good solutions online that were BSD
specific. Most seemed to be Linux-specific, so I wasn&#39;t entirely sure
what to do with regards to kernel levels and such.<br>
The card does run just fine under Debian/Ubuntu, so I&#39;m pretty sure it&#39;s not hardware.<br><br>With
the RadeonHD driver the virtual terminals (ctl+alt+f1-f8) all have
extremely blurry and unreadable text. If I switch to the VESA graphics,
it&#39;s fine. It&#39;s fine during boot until the RadeonHD driver kicks in
with the xserver start.<br>
<br>I&#39;m also getting occasional graphics corruption during normal use (vertical/horizontal tearing) but it&#39;s like once/twice a day.<br>Video card is the ATI 4670 - seems to happen with DVI or VGA output.<br><br>Here&#39;s the Xorg.conf:<br>
