This won't install fro me.  It gets about half way thru and quits with an "Installation Failed" message.  Wonder what the issue is ???

What version is your Sierra install at? There are three Sierra capable driver packages at the moment (two have the same URL despite having different OS version strings in their plist entries).

^^^^16A238m.  Installation starts than quits.  It was the same through the Nvidia Driver Manager.  I have now deinstalled Nvidia Driver Manager, but I can't remove the icon from the Control Panels.  Some of my Control Panels won't open, others will, but not always.  Seems to be a CP issue.  I have tried a Safe Boot, No Luck.

According to the seed listing, both 16A238m and 16A239j are using the exact same installer package. Something's definitely off.

Yes, I know.  I have tried a number of different fixes, but it appears that my System Preferences are screwed up.  I'd like to reinstall the OS, but I didn't make an installer disk.  I guess I'll limp along with this until the next release, or I can return to El Cap.  My GTX 780 works with the Apple Driver, it has the GK110A chip.

Dear guys!

it's maybe slightly of topic.
I installed Sierra on to an external hard drive and tried to boot my MacPro 5.1 (flashed 4.1),
but it ends with a kernel panic!

What's wrong? Is my Mac to old?

Easy, breezy install if you had the older GM with Beta webdriver.

With a 960 on a 5,1 I literally had no trouble at all.

The Beta worked on the GM, and then the Nvidia control panel downloaded the FINAL 10.12 driver.

Thank God that Nvidia isn"t letting Apple turn their machines into bad jokes as quickly as they want to.

(Before you get too excited, still no Pascal kext)

On the further good news front, despite claims from the "Soiled Captain", Maxwell cards have gotten an OpenGl speedup recently. Used to be a GTX780 had same Valley scores as Titan-X, now the Maxwell cards are 10% faster than they were.

Thanks again, Nvidia.

The TitanX will definitely outperform the GTX 780 when it's installed in a recent Hackintosh. It's not like the drivers "can't use the hardware" or something like that, the CPU overhead in OS X is just very high. A Skylake machine with high single thread performance "solves" that.

Does the beta driver work? When it comes to updating to 10.2.1, I intend to install the beta Nvidia drivers, then 10.12.1 then the proper driver so as to avoid installing/removing the gt120

I guess someone already answered this, but I'll just double post. I had serious issues with my Nvidia Drivers when I installed Sierra. The Web Driver neglected to kick in. There is a good workaround though.

1. Zap PRAM (google if you don't know how to).
2. Open the nvidia plug in system prefs.
3. Open the lock.
4. Change to Nvidia Driver.
5. Click the lock again.

Restart.

Now you should be all fine.

Nvidia today released Cuda-8.0, but so far for linux/windows only.

Releasing Cuda-8 for mac would have a sense alongside pascal support.

UNIFIED MEMORY SUPPORT ON MAC OS X

In addition to Pascal support in CUDA 8, CUDA 8 platform support for Unified Memory expands to Mac OS X. Now developers using Macs with NVIDIA GPUs can take advantage of the benefits and convenience of Unified Memory in their applications.!!!!!!??????

I haven't seen any way yet, but I also haven't dug into it myself.  One would hope that NVIDIA is working with Apple to get them to fix their loading stuff to load the web driver as well.

I don't remember this occurring in 10.11.6 but then again emphasis is on "I don't remember". I think there is a mismatch between 10.12 and nvidia's web driver.

My GTX680 brand new only startup after a NVRAM swipe. (cmd+alt+R+P)
Then it boots on the default OS X Driver. works fine.
If I switch to web drivers and restart, then nothing happen. Black screen of course, but the mac doesn't even boot completely. (can't access via VNC for example)

Any ideas ?

Hi all

Since I updated to macOS Sierra my Mac Pro always crashes after waking from screen. Prior to Sierra it was working perfectly (even sleep). Screen stays black and the machine restarts and shows this error report.
I'm using a GTX 970 flashed by macvidcards in a Mac Pro 4.1 (flashed to 5.1) together with the latest Nvidia webdriver.

Can anyone help me with the error logs? To me it looks like some error with the Webdriver? But I'm no techie :-S

No I fixed it. The german a2hardware helped me since the guy from mac-factory didn´t know what to do. The nvram boot-args terminal commands are the same despite the fact you have to type them in the terminal beeing in the recovery mode. So looks like there is nothing faulty with the card from mac-factory Berlin. I don´t think the guys from germany are stealing. The one who helped me seemed very professional. Here just my two cents.

Indeed, this sounds like good news. So it might be only a matter of time until Pascal support shows up in the Web Driver, or maybe even native? In contrast to the article you linked to, I also heard rumors that NVIDIA will come back to MBP as well. Guess we will find out soon - hopefully in a positive way, it's time to replace my venerable, but slowly aging Titan.

Driver is still installed but says it's not compatible!
The 367.15.10.15f1 is only compatible with the build number 16B2555 but if you download the 10.12.1 macOS update separate
like me, you receive a build version 16B2657 for what ever reason  ???

Driver isnt running even after kedt hack, didnt investigate much but it looks like new build needs updated nvidia driver.

Works fine for me,  367.15.10.15f1 and build macOS 10.12.1 (16B2657).

Code:
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist​

Make sure SIP is off.

Sorry I posted the wrong command, should have been:

Code:
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/NVDAStartupWeb.kext/Contents/Info.plist
sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel
sudo kextcache -system-caches

You may need the Flat Package Editor to modify the installer with the build number too.

From the lack of recent major posts, it seems like none of the main "players" here have yet to solve the nVidia GTX1080/70/60 problems for cMP on Sierra. Is some progress being made?

If Apple never releases any Mac with an nVidia card in this 1080/70/60 series, is there a chance of Netkas, Rominator, florian and other experts here finangling support for these cards?
At the moment, the prospect for a new MkII nMP with new GPUs in this series gets slimmer by the day (1000+ days and counting).

The driver may or may not come.

But if it comes, most cards will work.

All we as 3rd parties can do is EFI for cMP and/or eGPU.


Title: Re: Sierra builds of nVidia Web Driver
Post by: nekton1 on November 08, 2016, 06:54:36 AM
I'd have guessed that with so many cMPs still in service, nVidia would be interested in releasing a fully supported EFI card with OS X drivers, especially if Apple is not going to step up. Or perhaps they don't want to piss on superman's cape and spoil the chances for a GPU in an Apple future device.

Hey,

I used the 10.12.1 driver and changed it to look for "16" as build string.

Came up in B & W and locked.

eGPU testing could really use 10.12.2

Well I got my first response from a Nvidia OS X driver engineer. His message started off by saying "I can't comment on Nvidia or the Pascal driver but...". He started talking about the fact they're all disappointed in Apple and where Mac has been heading for the past 5 or so years. He also said he does all development on a Hackintosh! At first I was surprised, but then after thinking about it, it makes sense. A lot of these professional dudes tend to stray away from the Hack topic for obvious reasons. He ended the conversation by saying what we all know - for power users it's obvious that Apple doesn't need or want to cater to our needs/business so maybe it's time to start exploring other options. So again, not a definitive "No" but an insinuation we shouldn't count on it anytime soon.

it won't install on 16C67 and control panel will not give it to you. it seems apple did another silent release 10.12.2 second edition update with new build and f02 is just to accommodate that, likely no changes in driver since nvidia is still seeding f01 as newest for 16C67 users.

Okay, question still stands though -- why are you using a public beta OS?  NVIDIA seems to have slowed down on the "support" for beta OSes, so if you need the web driver to make your GPU work, my recommendation is still to just stick with the latest official OS version.

One reason people use BETA OS's is hope to get new stuff.

Pascal OSX support will bring some exciting changes.

eGPU support seems to be ready to go, but blocked by Apple.

We have EFI for 1080 already, just waiting for Nvidia.

Or Apple could get off their butts and release drivers that aren't locked in 2011. (One way to keep post 2012 Macs from eclipsing 2013 nMP is to hobble the entire fleet. Tim Cook is one crazy MoFo)

27) Why does every security update break the NVIDIA web driver?

NVIDIA provides a set of binary driver components that must interact with a binary interface from the Apple components, both Frameworks like Metal or OpenGL and kernel extensions like IOKit. As far as I can tell, NVIDIA has two options:
  • Tie each driver release to a specific build of the OS, so that they can guarantee that those binary interfaces remain static and thus their binary drivers are compatible. Every time Apple releases a new build of the OS, NVIDIA must release a new build of the drivers to match.
  • Assume that Apple won't change these binary interfaces in a security update and allow one driver build to work with any version of a specific OS release (like 10.12.2). If Apple does change one of these interfaces, the driver would continually crash or cause kernel panics, thus rendering the system basically unusable.
NVIDIA has chosen the first of these two options in order to avoid the huge support burden that would be generated any time Apple changes an interface that their drivers depend on. Having the desktop continually crash or the system go into a kernel panic boot loop can be very difficult to recover from, so NVIDIA has chosen the lesser of two evils and will generally require a new driver build to exactly match the specific OS build that Apple releases to the public.

Think about the support burden NVIDIA would have if Apple broke binary compatibility and then everyone's systems started kernel panicking on boot (i.e. the dreaded "reboot loop" problem).

The sad part is, nVidia doesn't have to build lock in Windows under any version of that OS. So the onus here still falls on Apple. And it's a major reason support is such a nightmare for Mac OS. Well that and the yearly abandonment of each OS version. Apple is more fractured than Android, if you can believe that.

Right, it's a side effect of the Apple driver model, where vendor drivers are closely intertwined with Apple frameworks/kernel extensions.

Also, point of fact, last driver update was Jan 24th. So in 2 months time, since 10.12.4 has been in beta, if todays release doesn't have pascal, they probably never will.

Now, if by some miracle they finally update hardware class with pascal support, then they'll bump the 367 and it'll definitely be a new driver path. However I really don't think that's going to happen now.

With all the rumourmongering... consider we're a couple months out from WWDC, and there's "supposed" to be an extensive refresh. Hope springs eternal. Who knows, maybe a new Mac Pro blows us all away and we finally ditch the cheese grater.

the problem is, people don't want to drop top dollar on a 1080ti late in it's life cycle. if the driver update is a year behind it's just not worth dropping money on it. At that point you hold out for next gpu.

I suspect it's apples doing though. nvidia i know wanted to push pascal support but something is blocking them. apple probably tired of their 2010 mac pros making their current over priced hardware look bad when modern gpus put in them.

To be honest I am quite annoyed at apple and their hardware policy but I do realise I am less than a negligent quantity for them. The main reason why I use macs is neither their hardware per se nor their design, although the latter is very attractive, but os x or macos if you will. I guess there will be a time that my macpro will become obsolete, rendered useless, and unless there are drivers for newer gpus my only option will be to turn to windows. I am not looking forward to this.

I turned hack and never looked back. but I want to use macOS as long as possible so long as driver support exists. However when I eventually replace 980ti, if there isn't a driver for what I replace it with, I may be forced into windows one day. I suspect that day will be coming in next year or two. Apple is on a different path than what works for me. the apple I want would care about performance. However the current apple wants thinner, weaker but more efficient/portable machines. It's a shame they can't separate that mentality between two devisions, mobile and desktop. but they continue to treat desktop with exact same mentality. All while trying to cripple their old mac pros and hacks so they don't constantly out perform their new offerings. Although funny thing is, i constantly hear from devs who actually develope from hackintosh for same reason I game from one. they hate apple hardware but like the OS. People want to run mac OS, they just don't want to use apples hardware anymore.

I'm on 10.12.4 and web driver 367.15.10.45f01 and I seem to be getting random kernel panics ever since it upgraded from 10.12.3. Anyone experiencing similar problems? Are there beta driver I can try?

Switching back to the OSX driver makes the graphics rendering of some of my apps distorted to a point where they're unusuable, so I don't have a fallback :(

This is what I see in the Console logs:

Since upgrading to Sierra and the new Pascal driver, I noticed strange corruption on Messages depending on what GPU I'm using to display it on. On my Mac Pro 5,1 system, I have a Titan X (Maxwell) and regular Titan card in slots 1 and 2.

On the Titan X, Messages displays normally (contacts fuzzed to protect the innocent):

while on the regular Titan, Messages content area is corrupted:

Anyone else see this kind of behaviour before?

Got my first Sierra 10.12.4/NVidia 378.05.05.05f02 kernel panic today after running fine since the driver's release. Looks like it came from the Nvidia graphics driver. I was just moving my mouse around when I noticed that the cursor movement was no longer smooth but quite jumpy/glitchy, then KP!

I'm running a Maxwell Titan X in slot 1 and a regular Titan in slot 2 on a Mac Pro 5,1 with 96GB of RAM and 2 X5690 CPUs.

Well, I updated this morning, and not as difficult as I expected. I had previously downloaded the Combo Updater from Apple. I modified the Nvidia kext. I then updated the OS with the Combo Updater. Got to the desktop, I then downloaded Nvidia's driver 378.05.05.15f01. I then restarted and got to the desktop. I then found the latest Cuda 8.0.83 and download that. No restart necessary. And BOOM, everything's updated, and my cMP 5,1 is running smooth as silk.

BTW, I'm running an MVC flashed Gigabyte GTX 1080.

With EFI cards you don't need to worry about much.

You can update OS, you will reboot to unaccelerated desktop (1 screen only)

You will know that Nvidia driver not running because screen will be choppy, black stripes will go up from bottom as CPU draws screen instead of GPU.

Shaking windows makes a mess. BUT...you can run the Nvidia Web driver update for new OS with ease.

This is one of big benefits of the EFI cards, painless OS and Web Driver updates while the unflashed folks are juggling cards and running scripts and modifying kexts.

A new bug has been found with the nvidia web drivers. Apparently the little snitch 4.0 network monitor window does not work with nvidia web drivers. It renders a blank/transparent window instead. Little Snitch 4.0 came out yesterday. Apparently only ones having the transparent/improperly rendered window are nvidia web driver users.

I'd bet it's Library Validation, just like iBooks and Instruments.  The list of updates includes:

  • Touch Bar Support
  • Ability to minimize the Connection Alert
  • Improved DNS name based traffic filtering using Deep Packet Inspection
  • Code Signature secured filter rules
  • Automatic Silent Mode Switching

Nothing NVIDIA can do about this, it's up to Apple to allow their drivers to load in apps that have Library Validation enabled.

Only reply I got from little snitch devs and they say there is nothing they can do to remedy situation. So people using web driver just won't be able to use little snitch 4.0 network monitor.

All can hope for now is by some miracle apple updates stock nvidia drivers one day so I can use those instead. Eventually when I do upgrade GPU again though in 1-2 more years, if apple is still anti nvidia I'll probably go with AMD to reduce hassle of the growing incompatibilities with web driver not to mention it's diminished performance and increasing buggyness which is probably in no short part do to fact nvidia is frustrated with apple and won't commit as much effort to a driver when apple isn't commit to nvidia's hardware.

Yeah, I don't use macOS anymore myself, and have a hard time justifying a recommendation to buy NVIDIA if you want to run macOS.  It's just going to get worse and worse unless Apple produces an official product that uses an NVIDIA graphics chip (or somehow makes the eGPU box officially support one or more NVIDIA cards).

You might want to try pulling out the GT120. That GPU isn't even supported at all in Sierra. It'll work, but you're running a mix of GPUs, one of which only supports OpenGL and the other which supports Metal. Nix the GT120.

like any OS release, you'll probably have to wait an additional day for them. Even nvidia doesn't know build number of final product anymore. maybe back in day when "GM" actually meant golden master and not "improperly labeled release candidate", they could have day 1 drivers ready. But what apple shipped today was a newer build than "GM" (per usual) and they have to check/recheck their work an update build in drivers before shipping.

At least GTX680 works fine ;)

New Cuda Driver here:

https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-downloads?target_os=MacOSX&target_arch=x86_64&target_version=1012

It says Cuda 9.0.176, but once installed Cuda says it's Cuda 9.0.197.


Still waiting for Web Driver

Usually it is the other way round, driver first, cuda later, or am I wrong?

CUDA was always first ;)

I stand corrected... I just hope the driver will be out soon.

nvidia support is telling people who contact them that web drivers will come in about a week. that's brutal.

Oh well. Gives me plenty of time to make preparations for 10.13 then, eh? :P

you're on a 780, you don't actually need web drivers. the opencl lib with working power management from 10.12 drivers dropped in to stock drivers would probably be enough.

I spent 4 hours today converting my Tima Capsule drive to APFS just to know it's not supported via Time Machine ;) Had to revert it back to HFS+.

I'd take that with a massive grain of salt, their support people haven't been particularly up-to-date with things relating to the web drivers in the past.  Someone posted info (I forget where) that they expect a driver out within 24-48 hours of 10.13 going live yesterday.

just a heads up, installer threw errors, but asked if i want to continue anyways. I said continue, rebooted, it still seems to be working but no idea what the "errors" were

High sierra, it should go in it's own thread.

My installation didn’t throw up any errors but CUDA complains that there should be a newer version than the latest 9.0.x to go with this driver.

Installed without probs Thanks for the link! For the first time after I installed NVIDIA's GTX 980 the PCI section in "System Information" does not produce an unknown error and shows the info related to my card. However it reports a speed pf 2.5 GT/s:

Reporting 2.5 there is normal because card is in power management state. best way to really tell is to open a cuda or opencl app that reports bandwidth and you'll clearly see it at 5.0


Title: Re: Sierra builds of nVidia Web Driver
Post by: eVasilis on September 27, 2017, 08:37:17 AM
Thanks for that! As there was never any info reported there with previous OSs I had no idea!

I did try with Luxmark render but I still get 2.5

I guess this has only to do with how System info reports the speed of the card. OceanWave tells a different story:

If lspci still works, it is an awesome thing
