Hello,

when using nvidia-drivers, what USE flags would be good on Mesa? There is only a very old post about this in the forums. Any recommendations?

MESA is not used when you have proprietary drivers installed.

Thanks allot for the info. It is still pulled in for some reason when installing X but it might explain the lack of information about this.
