I am using Nvidia 325.15 with freetype from rpmfusion. I have two Geforce 570 in SLI.
Comment 4 leigh scott 2013-08-31 04:10:12 EDT
I haven't had any issues using 325.15 from rpmfusion (I packaged it for rpmfusion) with my gt450.
I am also using freetype-freeworld.

I'm certain this is a graphics driver / config issue, please forward your issue here
