    Looks like the driver is installed but I don't have any 3D acceleration.

    Code:
    $ glxinfo | grep -i render
    direct rendering: yes
    OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI R300 20060815 x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE2 NO-TCL

    What makes you think you don't have any 3D acceleration? The very output you pasted shows that you do.

    It may be because of the Mesa tag. There was a post not too long ago about how to enable proper 3D acceleration with the radeon driver:

    I don't know if this behavior has changed at all with FreeBSD 9. Running kldload radeon may do the trick.

    There's no 'trick'. The OP had 3D acceleration enabled.

    Ah, I forgot that Gallium3D isn't available on FreeBSD. Still, if he is having performance problems, then I still think there's something that's misconfigured. I suspect something in his xorg.conf is causing an issue.

    Except that we don't know if the OP is having any performance problems and, if so, with what application. doom3, for example, is not going to perform well, and that's to be expected. No amount of tweaking in xorg.conf is going to change that.
