Thank you, polyzargone!

 

I tried it, but it says, there is no newer version available. I do not seem to be able to direct the check to the already downloaded package, there is nothing like that in the menu or GUI... :-( Seems my only choice is to wait for the updated driver to appear in the location where this program looks at...

 

Thank you a lot for pointing me to this updater. This is definitely the way to go in the future...

 

Makes sense since the NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater.app 1.4 will check what's your current OS X version is.

 

Anyway, you could download the correct webdrivers from post #1 then use this little AppleScript app to remove both SMBios & OS X version checks.

Thank you, polyzargone!

Thanks for your help!

Hm, I just tried that and this procedure failed. At the end of the install the NVidia Driver told me it switched the settings back to the Default OS X Driver since the new driver is not compatible with the currently installed OS version and told me to reboot. Knowing that I would have a black screen after reboot, I installed the 10.11.5 update and rebooted. I got that black screen on DP and a white screen on HDMI.

I still can ssh into the machine. Does anyone know a command line way to switch the graphics driver to the NVidia Web Driver, away from the Default OS Driver?

Thank you all!

Check nvram with this :

 

nvram -p

 

You should have boot-args="nvda_drv=1" in it. If not, type this then reboot :

 

sudo nvram boot-args="nvda_drv=1"

Hey polyzargone!

 

Thank you for your help - it worked like a charm - I am back in the game!

 

I'll make a KB article for myself for this procedure! Brilliant stuff!

I left the hackintosh scene for a while, can you explain me how you bypassed version check in the .pkg installer please?

It says no driver found for my build: 15G7b, i believe it's the  10.11.6 Public Beta 1

 

But anyways i found a workaround

pkgutil --expand WebDriver-346.03.10f01.pkg test.unpkg

Then i edited the script in the file: Distribution 

 

lines: 40-41

			var supportedOSVer = "10.11.6";
   	 		var supportedOSBuildVer = "15G7b";

Then:

pkgutil --flatten test.unpkg/ fixed.pkg

Now the version check pass and i can install it

 

Then i patched the build number using your app

 

I'll reboot now, hopefully it'll work


It worked :D

Here show the latest available :P (because not already installed)

BTW always forgot that we have not yet shared the 1.5 version that can download all old builds for the current OS, if anyone is intrested:Attached File  NVIDIA® WebDriver Updater_v1.5_Beta.zip   1.1MB   44 downloads

So when icoming beta 2 of 10.11.6 will comes (and no web drivers available) you will be ready with a total automated process  :wink_anim:

Is there a way to list all supported cards via the webdrivers? As in is there a plist that has a card listing within the driver package?
