Has someone in idea what the exclude-oats.txt (within the OpenGL driver , resources) has for an meaning?

Does it config some workaround? (Lots of text about Channel_exception bugs = hangs /stalls , often happened with Nvidia gpus)

# Exclude list for OATS tests for Branch GB10.
# When editing, look for all occurences of your bug number, there could be more than one.

# Lines that beging with #= limits the exclusion to the named GPU devices or GPU families.
# The scope ends at the next blank line.
# By default the tests will be excluded for all devices, same effect as using the tag #= ALL
# The tag #= NONE can be used to omit the exclusion for all devices.

# For Future expansion:
# Lines that begin with #? contain information about the nature of the failure.
# Keywords include: Hang Crash Failure Waiver Success GLErrors Intermittent Channel_exception

# Tests included in Apple's test list but not actually included in the OATS drop.
# Many of these are app tests anyway, which we may not want to run in automation.
#? Mandatory

Does Nvidia Beta 5 drivers work with beta 6?

Not sure I didn't try them.

 

I altered the GM 3 installer so it would install, but it still says incompatible with this version of OS X in System Preferences.

 

There's probably a couple of other places in the install that specify the build the drivers will work with.

Yeah I tried editing the "NVDARequiredOS" line in the NVDAStartup.kext but I still can't install due to the OS version not being compatible. 

 

I'm really trying to figure out a way to get drivers installed for PB6 because I just got my GTX 970 and my wife will only use OS X and won't touch Windows!

first, use pacifist to extract the kexts then edit the NVDARequiredOS line in the NVDAStartup.kext

 

after that, use kext wizard or what you want to install the kexts in S/L/E

 

repair the permissions and rebuild the cache

 

boot with -v kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1

EDIT: Thanks! I got it!

 

 

I had done a reinstall then updated straight to pb6 so I currently have no other nvidia drivers installed.

 

So per your instructions after editing the NVDAstartup.kext I would use kext wizard to install ALL kexts in the pb5 driver package to S/L/E? What about the other files in the pb5 pkg? 

 

Thanks.

Got the Nvidia driver installed and it is now working, but still shows up as "NVIDIA Chip Model" in About this Mac/System Information.

 

I used 

pkgutil --expand

to extract the installation package.

 

Edit the file "Distribution" and change the build from 14A388a to 14A388b 

Edit the Info.plist file in the NVDAStartup.kext and change the build in there too.

 

Then use

pkgutil --flatten

To put it all back into a .pkg so you can install it

Edit the file "Distribution" and change the build from 14A388a to 14A388b

 

or just delete these two lines

 

if (!validateHardware()) return false; 

if (!validateSoftware()) return false;

 

it will delete hardware and software check function

Working fine for me here. In fact, I found the PM bug was fixed even without the web drivers in default Yosemite. GTX 780.

 

Open a picture (png/jpg) in Preview and check the card speed again. The PM bug is still around to a degree.

 

It clocks down again but only after you exit Preview. If you close the picture, Preview appears to close but the card will continue running at high speed. You have to quit Preview when it still has the picture open for the card to clock back down.

I can confirm this. If I use stock drivers from Apple then open a picture the clockspeed goes up. But it does go back down if I quit preview.

Try this New one :http://us.download.n...43.01.01f01.pkg

 

If there is a problem with installing do this:

 

Download Pacifist and install the new nVidia driver this way (open it up in Pacifist and then click the icon in Pacifist - no need to manually extract and install kexts).
3. Open up a terminal window and run the following command

sudo nvram boot-args="-v kext-dev-mode=1 nvda_drv=1"
5. Install the nVidia web driver again but properly this time, i.e. without using Pacifist.
6. Restart.
