Howdy. I see:
Code:
[   383.820] (EE) RADEON(0): Acceleration initialization failed
and
Code:
[   385.769] (EE) AIGLX error: dlopen of /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/dri/swrastg_dri.so failed (File not found)
I don't know enough about the X.Org subsystems and Xenocara pacakging to be able to assist with this particular issue. However, I'd llike to point out that in 5.3, there are two radeon drivers: radeon(4) and radeonold(4). You might test your hardware with the older driver in 5.3, it may work and the older driver has 2D acceleration.

In -current, now, the driver has been revised to enable kernel mode setting (KMS). This change was made in August, and is beyond 5.4 which will be released in two weeks. You might experiment with -current and its KMS-enabled driver. You would need to download and install microcode, per the Following -current FAQ.
