You can run opengl with mesa libraries, which do opengl in software.
There is no modern card that has free drivers for opengl in hardware.
Only a few older cards have such drivers.

If you want hardware opengl you are stuck with the nvidia driver, but
for just running X in 2D, the nv driver generally works great.  For
testing a problem, it is often handy to elliminate what you can't get
source code for, such as the nvidia driver.
