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. It'll be interesting to see who ends up addressing issue first.

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.
