Hello,

I would like to try adding a 3D Desktop feel to my laptop, but I am
new to this thing, and was not able to find how to install xgl or
aiglx. I installed Beryl and it complains about not finding AIGLX
display.

How should I start? What will I need to have installed and running,
and how to do proper testings when/if things go wrong?

I appreciate your help. I found some tutorials, say,
http://wiki.beryl-project.org/index.php/Install/FreeBSD, but it seems,
to me at least, that it is not an up-to-date resource.

Any directions will help.

I haven't done it on FreeBSD yet, but I've done it on a couple Linux
distros.  Aside from the glx module already suggestion, you may also
need to load the dri and vbe modules.

This option in your Device section is also important.

   Option         "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"

If you're running an nvidia card, you also need to make sure you have
the latest development drivers for your card.  I'm running 1.0.9755 on
my machine, but I believe I had aixgl working on the 1.0.9746 version
that's in the ports collection.
