FreeBSD - Intel Express Chipset Family.
How can I check to see if I'm actually using hardware acceleration for my graphics? I use Intel 82915 Express Chipset Family integrated graphics. I want to know how I can check to see if I'm using it and it's working properly.

I'm installing "graphics/mesa-demos" right now. I've read that at least glxinfo is in that package, so that should help, right?

I've attached the output of "glxinfo &> glxinfo.txt". Are there any obvious problems?

Is "Failed to initialize GEM. Falling back to classic." strange?
Is everything being None or Slow strange?

The "Failed to initialize GEM" is normal since you're using FreeBSD (GEM is a Linux-centric graphcis feature found in the Linux kernel).
Also you're using direct rendering (see the line "Direct Rendering: YES"). The loads of "none" and "slow" are mainly because your GPU is pretty outdated and underpowered.
