I had a perfectly working installation on 10.7.2, OpenCL/GL was enabled, and I never got a crash with that config. I'm using the MacPro5,1 profile.

I upgraded to 10.7.5, with a lot of problems. Now whenever I use a GL heavy app like VLC, the system crashes. I get artifacts, etc., as well from time to time. System doesn't survive more than 15 minutes. I believe there is nothing wrong with my hardware (if somehow the new drivers didn't kill my card), because it seems to work properly on another leopard installation.

Did anyone have a similar situation with 4xx cards?

I tried installing NVIDIA web drivers, it didn't help, I'm trying again as I write this.

Thanks in advance,

Update: I just made a full time machine restore back to 10.7.2 and my system now works perfectly. Do NOT upgrade to either of 10.7.4 or 10.7.5 if you have GTX 480! I think I have tried just about every driver / patch combination, and you either do not get OpenCL support, or you get imminent crashes.
