Are you using 14.1 slackbuild (version 352.63) or the experimental 14.2
SBo master branch - which i don't think is updated to the new driver yet
- or the experimental version 361.42 I posted to this list as a link to
a download location?

I'll be updating for 14.2 this weekend. Thanks for the bug report. I'll
check on it. Nvidia tends to rename libs willy-nilly, and I definitely
need to increase the font size on these monitors ;-)
