Thanks, going to patch if it works. I understand that you used the openCL patch from the first post not the last one?

Oke thanks, I had to remove the old nVidia kexts first in /System/Library/Extensions (See Pacifist what kexts are replaced by the installer) to install the new kexts.

If you have smbios set to Macpro just run the installer app. All files form package need to be installed.

Version taken from http://www.nvidia.co...f02-driver.html

This is only for 10.8.2 and there is no "previous release" for 10.8.2.

HOW TO INSTALL ON NON MACPRO Modells:
1. Copy the nvidia install .pkg somewhere (desktop)
2. Show packadge contents in finder on .pkg
3. look after the .dist file
4. Open (drag & Drop) .dist with texteditor
5. change var found_hardware = 0 into =1
6 save .dist
7 Happy installing ( i use iMac11,1 - no problem after changing that var above :) )

PS: Sometimes in the past i had problems if i used pacifist with that nvidia .pkg.

As previous release I mean version 304.00.00f20 retail drivers for 10.8.1. Check info version in the kext and you will find I´m right. According to nVidia version for 10.8.1 304.00.00f20 and version for 10.8.2 304.00.05f02.

But in both release the kext are the same version 304.00.00f20.

MD5 NVDAGF100Hal 03ed08975494e31236d8efaf23301867 version 10.8.2 retail drivers 304.00.05f02
MD5 NVDAGF100Hal 03ed08975494e31236d8efaf23301867 version 10.8.1 retail drivers 304.00.00f20


So the same Kext the same issues

One kext is not a "driver". NVDAGF100Hal is only kernel extension. Package have many files - eg. OpenGL driver etc... 10.8.1 (304.00.00f20) package not work in 10.8.2 so NVidia released updated driver for 10.8.2.

Some files are the same, but "driver" as package is different for 10.8.1 and 10.8.2 (check md5 sums for all files).

I tried install 304.00.00f20 on 10.8.2 and this combination not work for me.

Odd, I installed those drivers 3 times because each time my computer gets a grey screen after installing them (I can't boot with -x so I had to restore my computer each time I installed them), I don't think a 4th time will make the difference but I would like know if there something special I should make after installing them.

Yes, but only make sense if you use an Nvidia GPU. Also, in case of problems make an bootable Clone of your working system before updating.
Not in all cases installing the Nvidia drivers (insted of them from Apple) has some benefit.

Thanks.
Does Nvidia's updated driver remove the original Apple's kexts and put new kexts into SLE ?

...quick answer...yes... :smoke:
...from the installer..."A backup archive of the currently installed drivers will be created during this process. If you need to uninstall this driver and restore your original drivers, you can locate the “NVIDIA Driver Restore.mpkg” archive in the location /Library/Application Support/NVIDIA. Double-click that package and follow the instructions when it launches."

I check all MD5 in all kext and both are de same

Geforce kext md5 b9d13d4d45a709870ed411ca2cba4f63
GeforceGLDriver kext dff13ba397f896373fa2a8b02f481c5a
GeforceVADriver.bundle 9f4081d54b02bf497d4a4f80602bc9b3
GeforceGA kext 7ebf40ef8f72c1c9e9492891b88df803
NVDAGF100Hal kext 03ed08975494e31236d8efaf23301867
NVDAGK100Hal kext e9d48df90981e447552335f585ec8368
libclh.dylib fce873bb9d8f6ade0d670ee8f30abfc7
NVDAResman kext 71521511cfa81eaaed9dfc38b5f0503f

They just repair the login loop in the GPU.Support.Framework but no new drivers. So the Sleep/Wake/Resolution is Fixed but the random freeze with Channel Exception in log remain.

The only full working drivers for my GTX560M (GF116 Based) are the ML DP3 178Q kext and frameworks
