NVinject .2.1 + 10.5.4 + Vanilla kernel = unstable video


7 posts in this topic

From what I have been reading, I messed up when I used nvinstaller which set up NVinject 0.2.1 for my 256meg 7300gt under 10.4. My video works but freezes for a couple seconds every ten minutes or so.

I searched the board and it seems like what I was supposed to have done was use the NVKush Installer.


Any advice on the best way to proceed undoing NVinject and moving to something that is happy under 10.5.5?


Other info:

I'm running 10.5.4 with vanilla kernel.

I never removed the other video files.

Thanks in advance.

  1. Remove (delete) NVInject.kext in /System/Library/Extensions
  2. Install NVKush.kext (use the provided installer)

Thanks for the info. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.


I have video but have stability issues now. I think I'm going to nuke it start over.

I am using a Nvidia Geforce Go 7900 GS with Leopard 10.5.4 from retail DVD.


I had QE/CI but random desktop freezes just like you when I upgraded to 10.5.3 and 10.5.4.


I solved it:


For one: use NVKush ( I use NVinject but I changed the IOProbeScore from 60000 to 0. IOProbeScore got to be 0)


You have to put your deviced id in the info.plist of NVDANV40Hal.kext and NVDAResman.kext. Up to 10.5.2, it did not matter if you did not input your device id, but starting at 10.5.3 and 10.5.4 you have to put your deviced id.


Once I have done those 2 things. My random desktop freezes are completely gone.
