10.13.6 Released is it safe to upgrade or not?
only thing I is I can't use the mirror mode as it reverts to using the MacBook iGPU.
- Disabled SIP in Recovery mode
- Ran purge-wrangler script
- Selected option 2 (enable Nvidia)
If I boot with the eGPU on, I get a black screen just after the Apple loading screen. It never gets to the login screen.
If I boot with the eGPU off, I can get to the login screen and then turn on the eGPU, but as soon as I launch a program that utilises the GPU (Octane, Premiere, etc), the computer hard crashes and reboots (ie. the Mac BSOD).
Running CUDA 396.148 and Nvidia Web Driver 322.214.171.124.40.105
Also tried fr34k's script but it refuses to run on 10.13.6.
Can anyone help?
So far I've had pretty decent fortune using 10.13.6 with goalque's Hybrid AMD solution (v1.0.4 current). Works better than with 10.13.4 or 10.13.5 in my experience, so on some level 10.13.6 has provided some improvement. Not sure why / what Apple changed, but something did.
Thunderbolt 3 Macs, Sonnet and OWC eGPUs, 4K Displays, etc
Mac OS 10.13.6 everything seems to be going very very well. I have tested with Final Cut Pro and the processor does not seem to be utilizing the eGPU as much as thank it should. It uses the internally GPU and then send us some of the processing to the external eGPU. I used Alln1 to install the patch. We need a patch to help to utilize the eGPU more.
