For those who suffer freezes on startup: downgrading from the latest NVIDIA 372 to 368.69 helped my setup. Somewhere deep buried in some gaming forum someone was talking about 372 and xplane: allegedly the newest driver used almost double vram and suffered other technical issues I don't understand.
Compared to the linux install it still takes almost the double amount of time to load but at least I can play.
Can someone confirm this?
