I upgraded purge-nvda from 1.4.0 to 2.0.0 and the system works perfectly. I only used the first option "1. Enable AMD eGPUs".

Guides:
Mid 2012 15" MBP GT650M Non Retina + [email protected] (Gigabyte Gaming Box via TB3->TB2 adapter) + macOS 10.13.4 / Win10

 
2012 15" MacBook Pro (GT650M) [3rd,4C,Q] + RX 580 @ 10Gbps-TB1>TB3 (Gigabyte Gaming Box) + macOS 10.13 & Win10 [build link]

This is my first post here, so @mac_editor, thank you Smile for the hard work and time on making this happen !

The update worked just fine.

I just noticed some errors on the terminal screen saying : "No such file or directory" – please see screenshot.
Does this happened to you also ?

Kind regards.

Thanks for the report, I’ve come across a few bugs which I shall hopefully resolve soon in version 2.0.1.

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

That’s another bug - if you originally ran the script with sudo.

Try 2.0.1 and please report if you can Smile

Use the command in Step 2 (updated) to directly run if SIP already disabled.

Hi @mac_editor,

The eGPU keeps working perfectly.

But on my side I cannon run the purge-nvda command directly on terminal, I still receive some error messages.
What changed from 2.0.0 apparently is that the chflags command is not appearing anymore on the errors.

You can compare the screenshots here :
screenshot 2.0.0 – screenshot 2.0.1

Best regards and thanks again !
