I am writing a FreeBSD application in which I need to know the graphics

2) radeon - I think I know this case too. The user just needs to set in
The user does not need to configure xorg.conf. Xorg configures itself.
3) amdgpu - Not sure here. Appears to me that this needs the user to

4) intel - Not sure here too. Appears to me that this needs the user to
install the xf86-video-intel package. Anything else ? Further,
/boot/kernel also holds i915.ko and i915kms.ko. When are these modules
Thanks for any information.
