In Topic: Nvidia 10.8.2: OpenGL channel exceptions (freezes) -9600GT/285GTX

05 November 2012 - 03:44 PM

Just an update to the above. The new drivers didn't fix any problems for me but see below. Posted this in the other exceptions thread:

I think I've solved my random Channel Exceptions. I updated the bios on my EP45T-UD3LR from F5 to F10. Not sure why that fixed things but I've been crash free for 3 days now during lots of gaming and regular use. Going to keep on testing to make sure. I was also using a F5 specific DSDT and am now using a F10 bios specific one.



I'm not knowledged enough on DSDT hacking to understand the differences between the two DSDTs but I can post them here if someone wants to take a look.

The identical Gigabyte GTX650 card to the one I own is in the 10.8.2 HCL.

I'm not sure this HCL talk is really helping even if you mean well by it. Some people are having trouble and others aren't with the exact same cards. The card itself doesn't seem to matter as nearly three generations of nvidia cards are being reported as problematic in this thread.

I have that in my chameleon boot already and I'm still getting exceptions.

I've tried just about everything on my end here. The 10.8.2 supplemental update drivers still throw exceptions. I've swapped the GTS250 for a GTX650 and then a GTX650ti and still the same issues.

I've also tried switching to a different DSDT, adding the card under AGPM and setting my smbios to MacPro5,1 and a host of other little things. Nothing seems to make a difference at all.

The problem with finding a card in the HCL is that the cards affected here ARE in the HCL. They're working great for others but not us.

Apple has released a special 10.8.2 update for the new retina macbooks as well as other 2012 macs. They seem to come with some brand new Nvidia drivers and are supposed to have reliability fixes. More information here: http://netkas.org/?p=1227

I've had these installed since last night and so far no exceptions with a fair amount of use and some gaming. I'll update in a few days or if I run into any exception but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is a solution.
