Make sure your Intel Graphics runs in connector-less mode.

I've checked it, it's in connector-less mode.

So the question would be: 

 

Can we remove Nvidiagraphicsfixup kext and relay only in the new driver?  (Lilu should stay as it works with other kexts that you can check here https://github.com/vit9696/Lilu/blob/master/KnownPlugins.md )

 

Just add "ngfxsubmit=0" to config.plist to disable the fix within nvidiafixup

Hi,

 

I still have (and always had) a weird problem with the nvidia card, and I don't know if it is a power unit issue or a driver issue. Do you have such a problem, too:

 

Sometimes the screen goes black, for example if I scroll a specific webpage. It turns then on again, and off again. Then it may disappear and everyathing works fine again. Or not. Usually a reboot will let this problem disappear. There is no obvious heavy cpu/power usage while this happens.

 

Do you know this problem? Does it sound like a driver problem?

 

I use a gt1050 2gb and a 4k monitor connected thru DP.

I see this issue with DisplayPort monitors with many different systems, different OS and different monitors.

106 work with latest Security update?

 

UPDATE: According to xlr8yourmac the build changes to 17E202 and breaks the driver.

Funny you should mention this...

 

The App Store had a Security Update 2018-001 that was released today so I installed it. My Nvidia drivers now no longer work so I tried to install 387.10.10.10.30.106 and it says

Mac OS X version is not compatible

Mac OS X version 10.13.4 (17E202) is not supported with this package. Please see NVIDIAS website for further driver information. And it will notify me when drivers are available.

 

Notice it says 10.13.4 (17E202) which I guess the Security Update updated it to 17E202. Now no more Nvidia drivers for me :( 

 

Prior to the update I did make sure to install latest Clover boot loader, and update Lilu.kext to 1.2.3 and AppleALC to 1.2.6 which I believe are the latest.

just repatch the web driver

 

I'm not really sure how to do that but I would be grateful if you can point me in the right direction. This is on a Dell Precision T1600 desktop, E3-1290 CPU.

Hi bocajoe, 

Have you already figured it out?
If not, search for this NVDA WEB PATCHER script or here on this site... it is the most practical and easy way to do it.

It seems nice that chris1111 provided a patch, but I can't -- in good conscience -- download a random binary file from github and run it on my system. 

 

What is so proprietary about his patch that he can't include source? I think I'll wait until the updated driver comes out before I update... 

Does anyone know where to look for updates to the webdriver from Nvidia? I've ever found a page that lists them, just links to the actual files to download, and that root is not 'browsable'. I'd like to monitor that site to see when a version is updated for the 17E202 build. Once that is released, I can update OSX and should be fine.

Just look at the file the NVIDIA preference pane uses to auto-update:

 

https://gfe.nvidia.com/mac-update

 

Latest driver appears to still be 30.106 for 17E199.

    • I resolved the problem. Just set this coding in your config.plist:   "

    • I guess having pre{max-height: 500px;overflow: auto;} in CSS was too much for IPS Devs' tast.  Until an admin has hands on this, you still can use stylish plugin to accomplish it.     In fact, it is pretty easy than it appears - Just apply a simple click on the codebox (it will highlight it), then 'delete' key.
    • all the possible frequencyes i have added seems to work fine at the moment, i have added a lot of different frequencyes to support better all kinds of professional applications, inclunding strange sampling rates and goes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz, unfortunately 192 khz does not seems to work even on cards which should support it like the audigy rx, but other frequencyes just works fine and at the moment i have tested only the sound blaster audigy rx and the audigy sb0090 (1st gen audigy) and i can confirm that all the frequencyes from 8khz up to 176.4 khz does work on that card, so i think that such frequencyes should work on all the audigy 2, 2sz, 4 cards as well, tomorrow i will test with my sound blaster live! cards and i will let you know, but here are also some photos (pro tip: use cmd + alt/opton + 4 and then press space to make a screenshot of a single window):
