Most users of FOSS drivers do not need any xorg.conf or xorg.conf.d/ files.
Xorg should automagically load the correct driver. You could see that it
tried radeonhd but not radeon in the log file you posted, so
xorg-x11-driver-video-radeonhd should be the optional one you need to ensure
has been installed. The radeon driver is/was automatically made available
via installation of xorg-x11-driver-video.
It's a little confusing:
They apper 2 possible package drivers for my video card:
Which of them is the right?
For me the xf86-video-ati packages serves far better than the
radeonhd from 2010, as you can see from the packagename (the ati driver
packed is only some weeks old).
