Default is direct rendering supported in free driver?

Hi all.
I have old GeForce 2MX-400 64Mb

$ uname -a
FreeBSD  6.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE #0: Fri Jan 12 10:40:27 UTC 2007     root@dessler.cse.buffalo.edu:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386
$ glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
a piece of xorg.conf
Section "Module"
    Load           "dbe"
#    Load          "dri"
    Load           "extmod"
#    Load           "glx"
    Load           "/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extensions/libglx.so"
    Load           "record"
    Load           "xtrap"
    Load           "freetype"
    Load           "type1"
is direct rendering supported by my card or in freeware bsd-driver?

Assuming you're referring to the XFree86/Xorg nv driver, the answer is no; the open source driver supports neither direct nor indirect OpenGL rendering.
