    Same problem here. worked fine on 5.4 (with DRI enabled),
    and now it reboots on 6.0RC1 when trying to load X (with or
    without DRI). Vesa driver works fine.

    The video card is a 'SiS300/305/630 GUI Accelerator+3D', according
    to pciconf.

    Relevant lines on the kernel:
    device agp
    options COMPAT_FREEBSD5
