It seems that the pastebin links have expired. It is usually a better idea to
use attachments instead of pastebins where possible.

In your case, ensure that xf86-video-ati was rebuilt against the new
xorg-server, and that KMS is enabled in your kernel. A grep for RADEON in your
kernel config should result in this:

# CONFIG_FB_RADEON is not set

If the kernel is configured correctly, "cat /proc/fb" should return
"0 radeondrmfb".
