I forgot other detail, is that in the Xorg configuration files, was
not present the file for the video device driver, and I copied it from
the 12.1 installation. I enabled the driver as "radeon", but now I'm
in doubt, if it's radeon or radeonhd, for the ATI HD 5670 video card.

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 old radeonhd from 2010, as you can see from the packagename (the ati driver packed is only some weeks old).
