I read your link and do not understand the problem completely.
Linux-Libre has removed  module CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS because it no
longer needed in Linux-Libre because the one existing
CONFIG_DRM_RADEON is providing the support for same functionality

I got that right I hope.

So X is asking something which is removed because it was non-free and
not needed or no longer existed, I don't know . All I know booting and
X do not work properly. I did read your reply:


So , what do I do now ?   Buy a new Nvidia Card ?
