DRI support for Intel i810

In order to get DRI working you need to load a kernel module prior to starting 
X.  Eric Anholt plus others have done a bucklet of work to get DRI for 
various cards working on FreeBSD.

This is the main ( I think ) DRI website at http://dri.sourceforge.net.

Eric's website is at http://people.freebsd.org/~anholt/dri/ although it is a 
little out of date now.  The troubleshooting section might be of some use 

I know for a fact ( as late as October 2004 ) that DRI for the Intel i810/i815 
chipset on FreeBSD as I have a system based on the i815.  However, I also 
know that work was progressing on the later chipsets.  I'm not sure of the 
progress as I took the easy way out and installed a Radeon based graphics 
card that was known to work ;)

Hope this helps...Geoff
