      It does if you blacklist nouveau, et al.

      drop this
      Code:
      blacklist nouveau
      blacklist lbm-nouveau
      blacklist nvidia-173
      blacklist nvidia-96
      into this
      Code:
      /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-graphics-drivers.conf

          • Blacklist drivers
          • Boot into text mode
          • Install driver
          • Reboot
          • Profit

          OpenGL works great in the new driver.
