ML 10.8.3 random freezes w/ GTS 450

Recommended Posts

I have a hackintosh running ML 10.8.3 with a Gigabyte X58A-UD3R motherboard and an EVGA GTS 450 graphics card. The system works perfectly except that every once in a while I will get a random freeze (

NVDA(OpenGL): Channel timeout!)

. I don't have this issue with my GTX 480, but I'd prefer to have the GTS in this hackintosh. Has there been any progress to solving this freeze either through editing kexts or some other file?


As another question, I cannot get the AppleGraphicsPowerManagement kext to load, so I don't think any power states for the GPU are working- how can I get this to load?


Thanks in advance.

It's also happening to me with my GTX550. Worked like a clockwork on 10.8.2 and now every once in a while my system freezes and i have to reboot manually. I don't get a kernel panic screen, it just freezes and stays like that.

    • Hello,   My laptop (specs in signature) runs El Capitan and it works okay, but as the title says, the computer reboots when trying to wake up from sleep. I can't seem to find why it does this, as power management is presumably working properly. I'm attaching PR files. https://www.dropbox.com/s/um4iglj2nqy81c0/debug.zip?dl=0

    • Hi there, You can either use Lilu.kext and nVidiaGraphicsFixUp.kext or you can add the following patch to your config.plist under Kernel and Kext Patches: The kexts must be placed under the following path: /EFI/Clover/kexts/Other    Name: com.apple.driver.AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy Find: BA050000 00 Replace: BA000000 00   You can use clover configurator to mount the EFI partition on the drive that you have clover bootloader installed.
