!debian vrms would be proud of me - removed all nvidias propietary bits

Ok i removed all the nvidia's propietary bits using synaptic , webgl works in chromium only with 1-2 FPS, seems that i use the software rasterizer + vesa driver after removing xorg.conf

glxinfo | egrep 'OpenGL.*string.*'
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer
OpenGL version string: 2.1 Mesa 7.10
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.20

nouveau if configured in x doesn't load 

[   600.070] (EE) [drm] failed to open device
[   600.070] (EE) No devices detected.

And here is the vrms report

  8 non-free packages, 0.3% of 2332 installed packages.
  2 contrib packages, 0.1% of 2332 installed packages.

Update: noveau started after reboot
seems that nvidia driver was still loaded
but still 3d support is software only
so i have to force it or build gallium3d myself for better fps in 3d applications

Here is how is done in debian/ubuntu
