Which of these flags of mesa qt kwin etc. can work with binary nvidia blob?

when i isue "eselect qtgraphicssystem list" i get :

Code:
Available Qt Graphics Systems:
  [1]   native
  [2]   opengl
  [3]   raster *


Is there a way to make the opengl option work with nvidia blob, and how to do it ?
Thank you!

Maybe I just misunderstood your question, but I take it you have tried:
Code:
eselect qtgraphicssystem set 2


You don't describe what errors you got, when trying this, so it's a bit difficult to help you any further.

If I selct option 2, X starts but kdm crashes with or without gles and egl, The only way is to use raster option.
Am I doing something wrong or it's just not possible?
Where are kwin and detailed kdm logs located (there is nothing useful in /var/log/kdm.log ).There is nothing special in Xorg.0.log either :?

Yeah that's it.
We reached the same conclusion here (read the comments):
