Seems like the Radeon HD 5770; codenamed Evergreen (R800) is not
supported by Xorg's radeonhd driver:
The /radeonhd/ driver supports video cards based on
* R500 style hardware: R5xx, RV5xx, RS6xx, RS740, M52 and up
* R600 style hardware: R6xx, RV6xx, RS780, M64 and up
* R700 style hardware: RV7xx
OI booted with GUI on my gentoo workstation with a RadeonHD 4670
I can only suggest to downgrade to an R700 based card.
