I also have a notebook with 915GM, and DRI works perfectly
fine out of the box (using FreeBSD 6.2).  For comparison,
you can find dmesg, pciconf etc. here:

Make sure you have the "agp", "drm" and "i915drm" devices
compiled into your kernel (or have them loaded as modules,
but personally I prefer to compile them statically into my
kernel).  You should also have the latest version of the
"graphics/dri" port installed (and latest version of,
of course).

"python" is more likely to pass unharmed through your spelling
checker than "perl".
