I'm fairly new to install/uninstall drivers with kexts.

 

 

I installed an older nVinject kext in order to have a certitude I installed the proper drivers, (installed with Kext Helper).

 

But then, when I try to install newer version (0.2.1), after reboot in the system profiler, it stay the older version. It did me the same for some boggus audio drivers.

 

I'm clueless about OSX mechanic, it mostly the first time I venture in the OSX world, I've been a Windows users for Decade. It recently I decided to try OSX 10.5.2 on my XPS m1710 Laptop (DELL).

 

 

Thanks

*Bump*

 

Me too!

 

I'm only new to OSX, and I understand that with Apple things just work out of the box, but I can't seem to find anything on the Wiki or in Forum searching to explain how to do this.... iDeneb v1.4 [Leopard 10.5.6] if it matters...

 

I want to uninstall NVInject so I can use the newer nVidia drivers here on the forums for my 9600GT, to get OpenGL and stuff.... I know I could just reinstall and not select NVInject, but that's not practical - coz what about when an updated driver comes out again?

 

Not afraid of using commandline and learning it, I just got no idea WHAT to actually do!

 

Help us plz..... thanks so much in advance.... :)

OSX builds a cache of all the kexts in the extension folder. You can remove this file and force OSX to rebuild it. Try opening Terminal and typing:

sudo -s
rm -Rf /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

Then boot using the boot flags -f

 

If this doesn't work we can manually install it. Just let me know and ill post a guide.
