Anyone know why this thread is the only place on the public internet to find updated web drivers, do you need a nvidia developer account or something?

Anyone have any hints on how to modify the install package so that it works for iMac14,2 ? 

The old method I used no longer works and NVIDIA WebDriver Updater app doesn't find the new build to download.

 

thanks in advance.

Do you run the web driver update tool with booting from El Captain 10.11.2 Dev system?

For my knowledge it cant find the update of you try that tool booting 10.11.1

After installing the newest beta, the web driver just decided to work. Not sure what happened there. 

 

Oddly, the update tool (before installing the web driver pkg) informed me there were no updates for my system. -shrug-

Is Luxmark fully functional with the latest drivers on GTX 980 Ti or it is still having Image validation failure error?

So. I just did the public update and my Nvidia drivers say they are unsupported. Is there some other version or do I need to hack the kext?

Thanks

Well, I need my displays to work :)

 

Do the beta drivers on page 1 work? I can always update to official later on

The advice from my FAQ thread still applies:

 

http://forums.macrum...-cards.1440150/

 

 

NVIDIA has had a good track record of releasing new web drivers for each version of OS as it comes out. Sometimes there is a delay of a few days, but in general a new driver is available quickly. Given that, it is advised you do one of the following:

  • Update to the new OS, live with the stock drivers for a few days.
  • Wait until the new driver is released by NVIDIA, then update to the new OS.

I usually do the latter, since that allows me to get all the benefits of the web driver in the mean time.

Yes you can. They work fine with final release of 10.11.2.

Spoiler

Irrelevant in that case. The FAQ talks about forcing the use of webdrivers from a previous minor update over the ones of a new release.
 

Trying to force the 10.8.1 web driver to work with 10.8.2, for example, is just asking for trouble and will probably make your machine no longer boot to the desktop.


Latest beta drivers from #1 are meant to run on 10.11.2, not 10.11.1 ;).

They do "work" but I am noticing a lot of flicking in my current setup. I guess its better than having ONE display out of 3 working :)

 

Thanks! I shall wait for a final release.

Not irrelevant, my point is that if you use (and particularly if you depend on) the web driver, just wait less than 24 hours for NVIDIA to release the web driver for the new OS version before you update.  NVIDIA has been really good about getting a new driver out, so there's rarely been a problem with just waiting until the next day before you do the Software Update.

Yet, the FAQ you pointed out is still irrelevant in that case.

 

Your point is not. :)

Did you actually read FAQ #2 in my post?  In any case, the advice stands: if you rely on the web driver, wait until NVIDIA releases one before you do the Software Update.  For the latest OS, this normally takes less than 24 hours.

  • Interests:Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 with 6700K processor. GFX cards available are nVidia 8400GS and nVidia 970GT...

Is this a place where i can ask a question?  i have a Z170xUD5 motherboard and a I7 skyline processor.   My graphics card is 970GTX 4GB.  I have been using SMBIOS code for iMac17,1 but when I boot with the web drivers installed and nvda_driver=1 I only get a black screen when the logon screen should appear.  I have team viewer installed so I can remote to the computer.  What I notice is that it cannot see an external display attached.  It is only driving the (nonexistent) internal monitor.

 

If I switch the SMBIOS to MacPro3,1 -- that seems to resolve the graphics problem, but that has a whole set of other problems with USB ports etc.

 

Is there anything I can do to get the 970 to work correctly while the SMBIOS is set to iMac17,1?

 

 

--I found the answer to this on a different forum.  The answer is to edit the AppleGraphicsControl.kext.

I found instructions on how to do this by google searching for Solving NVIDIA Driver Install & Loading Problems
