I added that file, restarted X, still nothing.

Do I need to reboot?

Yes. The firmware gets loaded by the DRM module when it's initially loaded by the kernel.

Also, if the 'radeon' module is in your initrd, that firmware needs to be as well. If 'radeon' is compiled into the kernel, the firmware needs to be compiled in too :-)

3D works after rebooting.

So what about VBox?

Did you recreate the vboxdrv kernel module(s)?

I noticed this:

Code:
$ sudo modprobe vboxdrv
Password: 
FATAL: Module vboxdrv not found.
It worked before.

Right, the kernel module needs to be compiled for your kernel. The screenshot you attached earlier even tells you want command to run. Have you done that?

Did you try this? It should work.

Try doing it as root. The location will be around your init scripts some where, it doesn't look like that's in your path? I'm assuming you are running as a regular user.

Something like init.d or rc.d .........something like that.

I"m assuming you did the exact command Virtual Box gave you first?

For Arch it seems to be exactly what the original error message from Vbox gave you.
Code:
/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
