sorry for this off-topic but some people could find this info helpful

 

for all people with GTX570 and device-id 0x108610de, you don't have to wait for the first beta of Nvidia WebDriver for El Capitan... you can get this card work in El Capitan (guess with previous versions too) with FakeID - 0x108110de

Hello, I have the GTX 570 too but I have a problem: when I wake up OS X after hibernate mode my VGA stuck at the max frequency (732MHz) and the temperature go high...do you know how to solve this?

Anybody on 10.11.1 yet? I modified NVDA...kext to version 15B42. NVIDIA Driver Manager panel is set to Webdriver, nvda_drv=1 in bootargs. My 960 is not detected though and MacOS is using the default driver... Any Ideas?

 

Cheers,

Chris

• SIP value ?

 

• Did you fixed permissions and rebuild kernel cache using InsanelyRepairPermission tool ?

 

correct command is :

 

sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -rt /Volumes/Your Volume

 

Or just use this awesome app : NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.1

 

Works fine editing the NVDAStartupWeb.kext anyway ;) :

That did the trick, seems like my method of repairing permissions didn't work. Good to know, first time I did this in El Capitan. BTW, NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.1 didn't seem to repair permissions correctly as well :) Anyways, thanks a lot!

 

OT: do you know where to put the command line tool so I can use it from any directory?

Copy InsanelyRepairPermission to /usr/local/bin/

 

It will be available at anytime from the terminal. Just type the same command as explained above i.e :

 

sudo InsanelyRepairPermission -rt /

 

will fix and repair permissions on the boot volume.

OMG, v1.1 comes out today and should repair the permissions using InsanelyRepairPermission (included in the app bundle). So thanks to you for finding this bug .. I try to solve immediately! :D

New NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app v1.2  , now should repair the permissions as expected.

Sorry this was a mistake by me because InsanelyRepairPermissions was not copied inside the app bundle as he should have at compile time in Xcode:
I organized repositories shortly before compiling v1.1 posted, changing this, InsanelyMacRepairPermission was no longer found. Now it is OK

 

EDIT

The app check for the FS Protection in SIP, if enabled the app does not allow  kext patching or the NVEnabler.kext installation in SLE.

BTW you can install the downloaded package, also if SIP is fully enabled.

Okay, finally updated to the f02 driver (was still on the f01). New benchmarks are RIDICULOUSLY faster:

 

GpuTest results jumped from 16646 to 20613 too!!!  :drool:

 

This is exciting!  :w00t:

 

Update on 346.03.03f01!! Down on everything but with the oddity of that 4.1 result… :(

GpuTest result didn't take as much of a hit: 19968.

anything over 144FPS is a waste unless you have a monitor with a refresh rate higher than 144hz?

Yep, massivly. OpenCL is working only partime. Luxmark crashes after some time. Many other OpenCL tasks also or even didnt run anymore.

Even more OpenCL  probs with Apple drivers - mostly OpenCL apps not even start anymore .

For example VMWARE Fusion cant start guest anymore by OpenCL errors in the log.

Nvidia GT 440.

Meh. Is it stable on 10.10.5 and older web drivers?

Hi, for me i cant use that patch. I have disabled FS Protection in SIP but the app thinks it is enabled.

 

Here bdmesg from Chameleon

System Integrity Protection status: enabled (Custom Configuration).

Configuration:
	Apple Internal: disabled
	Kext Signing: disabled
	Filesystem Protections: disabled
	Debugging Restrictions: enabled
	DTrace Restrictions: enabled
	NVRAM Protections: enabled

This is an unsupported configuration, likely to break in the future and leave your machine in an unknown state.
Seems like latest webdrivers are broken on 10.11.2 15C27e :(. Instant reboot when reaching OS X desktop :o !
