Nvidia Web Driver updates for macOS Sierra (UPDATE 05/07/2018)

Recommended Posts

Many upcoming games will require Sierra or later due to a significant update of metal API, so it depends on what you are doing especially while deciding the value of OS itself.

 

Yeah, of course YMMV, but gaming on macOS? Horrible imho. Much better to use dual boot.

 

Actually, while it's true that the frontend Console app is now pretty horrible, you can still find pretty much any info you want (and I'd say have even more control over it) by using the "log" command, once you understand how to use it properly.

 

I know, but it is much more cumbersome to do that this way. I really don't get why they did not retain this functionality. Frankly, I am more and more concerned where macOS is heading to in general. The lack of quality control, and their efforts to dumb down everything until it is not usable anymore makes me really worry.

Hopefully yes.

 

In the meantime, you can edit NVDAStartupWeb.kext > NVDARequiredOS to match 16D32 build number (or just 16D). It works fine !

oh thx ;)

What version are you using ? With latest 367.15.10.35f01 and NVDAStartupWeb.kext edit, I have this when I rebuild kernel cache :

Did 10.12.3 change anything regarding the iBook / Instruments Issue? Or regarding the various graphical glitches for example after fast user switching? (Also happens with "real" macs using macOS drivers)

Oh I'm sorry ! I just realized you were talking about 10.12.3.

 

I'm now on 10.12.4 beta 16E144f and webdrivers are broken. Even with edited NVDAStartupWeb.kext :(.

What gfx card are you using? (Using phone so can't see)

Fortunately, it's a GTX 650 Ti which doesn't need webdrivers at all ;).

I'll let you know how I go. Just made a backup and installing beta now.

I seem to be having the same? issues. Installed latest Nvidia driver then the 10.12.4 beta 1, applied NVDAStartupWeb.kext patch 16E, fixed audio and patched ADGP.

OSX says that my GFX card is detected and it is, including 4Gb ram apposed to 7mb but my screen is glitchy, no transparency. Typing this post makes the screen flicker with every keystroke.

Too bad. Think my decision to roll back to El Capitan (something I never did before!) was the right one.

 

Sierra = boooo. Apple, get your stuff fixed!

Just installed 10.12.4 Beta (16E144f) and changed NVDAStartupWeb.kext:

<key>NVDARequiredOS</key>
<string>16E144f</string>

It works somehow. But not as it should. There is no hardware acceleration for now. Any Idea what to try to get it work properly?

No ideas. Waiting xxx.xx.xx.xx.xxb01 (beta) driver special for 10.12.4.

      Ciao ragazzi, torno a voi dopo moltissimo tempo per chiedere un aiuto.
      Sierra 10.12.6 - motherboard z68xp-ud4 - i7 2600k - Gigabyte gtx 780 FE 3072mb - imac 14,2  - ultimo clover e clover configurator.
      La scheda 780 viene vista con una lunghezza pcilane di 1X,  il clock ed powermanagement tuttavia sembrano correti e funzionare ( anche se il powermanagement è abbastanza lento).
      Il kext Apple GraphicsPowermanagement non viene caricato, Cercando AGPM nella consolle non trova nulla, a volte unknown platform.
      Ho provato sia con che senza cuda, sia con che senza webdriver ( con relativi flag nel config.plist).
      Ho provato ad iniettare l'id 10de_1004  al posto di quello 10de_119e ( gtx 780m) nel kext AGPm alla sezione della board relativa ad imac 14,2 , sia mettendo un doppione del kext nella EFi, sia sostituendolo direttamente in s/l/e.
      Ho provato anche a mettere il fix GFX0 to IGPU con il clover configurator.
      Ho provato a mettere il fake id delal 780m direttamente con clover configurator.
      NULLA tutto invariato.
      Ora mi chiedo.. pensate che sia una questione estetica, oppure ho la scheda semi-difettosa ( comprata da un privato 5gg fa) ?
      Grazie a chi mi aiuta.
      Come detot In generale la scheda sembra andare bene , come detto sopra, solo vedo 1x, agpm non caricato ( ma il clock è dinamico) e scalda abbastanza anche solo nella navigazione con firefox ( che ha accellerazione hardware  attiva) arrivando a volte durante la navidazione anche a 52 gradi..
      Il metal viene riconosciuto dal profiler.
      Help.
