Apple modified Security Update 2019-002 this morning.  Why not change the designation, I do not know Huh  Anyway the new build no. is (17G6030).  The Driver anding in 123 no longer works.  The pulled 108 Driver is still working along with Cuda.

Why would you patch 108 to work on it instead of patching 223 the SAME way to work on it?

I literally did a one line terminal command and rebooted and was good to go. whatever 17G6030 fixed was important enough to push it to users who had 17G6029. often apple makes newer builds but only pushes them to people who don't have previous one. This one they pushed to EVERYONE.

^^^^The pulled 108 driver is NOT patched.  It has worked, as downloaded, on all iterations of HS 10.13.6.  And if I recall correctly it worked fine on 10.13.5.

Just have to say, nvidia's drivers on multiple displays are absolute crap. I'm one of those users who had a single display until this week and I must say, the code is spagetti and a disaster on macOS

1. Toggling 2nd display on or off has a chance to make both displays perma black/standby and be unusuable until hard reboot
2. Any of displays going into standby mode have a chance to get perma stuck that way until hard reboot.

As long as 2nd display remains off no issues.

Display one is hooked up to 1080ti Display Port. Display 2 is hooked up to 1080ti DVI (yes same card, single card configuration).

I don't know if driver just sucks balls at managing a DP and DVI at same time instead of dual DP, or what the problem is. All I know is when I google the problem it seems universal to windows and mac and ONLY on nvidia drivers.

It's a real shame nvidia makes best hardware but their drivers have been such a buggy disgrace for years now. Meanwhile AMD drivers probably more reliable but their cards are crap (their radeon 7 is an utter disgrace. A grossly overclocked vega that's STILL 8% slower than a STOCK 1080ti. an overclocked one? or a 2080ti, forget it, all while needing 50 more watts of power and able to heat a small village)

I want to find a working 2 display configuration but I don't want to do it with an inferior GPU that's going to turn my room into a loud sauna.
