Look no further than /System/Library/Extensions.

 

The GTX 660 has had native support since 10.8.3.

What are you trying to say? Please be more specific. Red camp does not release OS X drivers for their video cards.

...

 

As far as I can tell, the Bitminter client is written in Java - I'm guessing it's probably a Java issue.

 

Try updating/installing Java 7: http://www.java.com/download

 

If it still doesn't work, try the Minecraft demo, installing it will trigger a Java 6 update, maybe Bitminter will work then.

 

(There are probably other, easier ways to have that happen but I don't know any)

Is there an echo in here?

 

If your native language isn't English, look through the list of forums here and see if we have one in your native language.

 

"red camp" meaning ATI/AMD, as opposed to "green camp", being guess who.

 

...

 

I have a GTX 660. Grabbing the test version of bitminter right now, I'll let you know if it works.

 

/EDIT - yes, as far as I can tell it's working fine here.

 

If you have GraphicsEnabler=y in your /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist you need to set that to n instead of y.

No, because as I said nothing special is required for this to work. I don't have any files that you don't already have yourself.

will EFIStudio work to help edit org.chameleon.Boot.plist file?

org.chameleon.Boot.plist file
 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Just go to the Applications folder and find TextEdit.  Use it to edit the org.chameleon.Boot.plist file.

 

Change:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>Yes</string>
 
To:
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>No</string>

It look like it did not work.

How do I test it to see if it worked?

Can I ask, do you suffer from some kind of mental illness?

 

Try removing this as well:

 

<key>PciRoot</key>
<string>1</string>
 
Don't forget to reboot.
 
EFI Studio will not help you, the GTX 660 does not require anything special in order to work.

Yes I do.
I rebooted.
I did not see the GPU widget in the software yet.

Okay, then I don't know what's wrong. Maybe you have removed or changed some system files in an attempt to make your video card work?

 

You need to undo all modifications related to your video card and remove any kernel extensions related to video that were added by post-install tools.

 

(and thank you for being honest)

I have a Ati 600 pro.

What happened to the GTX 660 that you mentioned in the title to this thread and in the first posting?

 

ATI x600 Pro is an older video card and probably will not work well with Mavericks.

I was just asking if I need to switch out video cards.
