Default Xorg problem

I have problem with xorg, with or without xorg.conf. After creating xorg.conf I add Depth and Modes in xorg.conf as indicated in FAQ. Because I use gnome in .xinitrc is exec gnome-session. When run startx I get only black screen. CTRL-ALT-Backspace don't work, only when try to restart computer on the black screen appears gnome window that the computer will shut down within 60s or i can click cancel. Also mouse on usb port Genius 100x don't work, only touch pad work.
What i can do now?

What version of OpenBSD are you running: 4.9, 5.0 or 5.1current? Xorg configuration and the supported radeon cards have been evolving. What does dmesg reveal about the radeon card?

On this computer is OpenBSD 5.0 stable, graphics card is ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570.

From dmesg:
Code:
vga1 at pci1 dev 0 function 0 "ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4500" rev 0x00

Should be supported although there has been driver updates and some back and forth changes (radeon vs radeonhd) in 5.1 current.
Any clues in /var/log/Xorg.0.log? If you substitute
Code:
radeonhd
for
Code:
radeon
in your xorg.conf
Code:
	Identifier  "Card0"
	Driver      "radeonhd"
	BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
does it help?

Nothing, the same problem. In /var/log/Xorg.0.log i don't find any error or somethink unusual.

Code:
(II) LoadModule: "radeon"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/radeon_drv.so
(II) Module radeon: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.9.5, module version = 6.12.2
Module class: X.Org Video Driver
ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 8.0
(II) RADEON: Driver for ATI Radeon chipsets:
etc...

I will wate 5.1 and then I'll try.

Hi Marconi !
I remember I had once an isssue like this so I dropped using startx script and just did :
xinit /usr/local/bin/gnome-session
it worked fine ..
as for gnome on openbsd-current .. I upgraded two days ago , and installed gnome* , but for some reason I received a dialog box reading :
Code:
gnome : can't publish discovery information on the network
I click on the close button there in .. to see a badly shaped monochrome gnome desktop .. (even though I installed the menus/themes/extra ...etc ) ..
kde is working fine though .. you can try your way ..

This probably needs a new thread
Code:
gnome : can't publish discovery information on the network
I think this is dependent on the dbus and avahi daemons. Are they started in /etc/rc.conf.local?
Code:
cat /etc/rc.conf.local
ntpd_flags="-s"         # enabled during install
xdm_flags=              # enabled during install
lpd_flags=""            # Start print daemon
pkg_scripts="dbus_daemon avahi_daemon mpd"

Same problem with this command.

I forget this time to add in rc.conf.local, this solve the problem with the mouse.
Code:
xdm_flags=NO
gnome_enable=YES
After adding this I get a login screen and after that xorg.
Code:
ntpd_flags="-s"         # enabled during install
xdm_flags=              # enabled during install
lpd_flags=""            # Start print daemon
pkg_scripts="dbus_daemon avahi_daemon mpd"

If an incorrect .xinitrc/.xsession was the problem it suggests you took some short cuts. When I am trying OBSD on new hardware I use the default settings (fvwm, xclock,xterm) first to see if X works at all. Having posted this would focused attention on the /etc/rc.conf.local, /home/user/.xinitrc or /home/user/.xsession scripts rather than your xorg configuration.

Thanks shep ! I wasn't hijacking the thread.I just wanted to let Marconi a gnome-related note to consider
Marconi .. you don't have to have xdm/gdm or rc.conf.local line(s) for gnome to start. I just use :
xinit /usr/local/bin/gnome-session
likewise , kdm is not a necessity .. it's a beautifier login screen ..
xinit /usr/local/bin/startkde
would work ..
