I also didn't have to put in my password since there was no prompt for it. Maybe because I had older version installed already?
"You will be prompted to enter your account password for superuser permissions."

Your terminal window may have already authenticated for superuser permissions previously. In such a case you won't see this prompt.

Downloaded security update and installed .107 of the nvidia driver. Am I still good to go or must the nvidia driver be an earlier version for this script to function? (and then update to 107)

Any chance of this working on an iMac Pro/Akitio Node Pro/1080Ti rig when fr34k's script doesn't work?      
(want it to work, but can't afford another half-day experiment this week)

Thanks and great work regardless!

iMac Pro (2017), 3.2 GHz Xeon W, 32 GB, 1TB SSD, RX Vega 56 + AKiTiO Node Pro w/ Zotac 1080 Ti, working with login hack on 10.13.3 but BROKEN by Apple blocking Nvidia in 10.13.4. Boo-hiss you Apple!

I've been using this script for a while now, with important projects finished with success. My NVidia eGPU's work perfectly. There are, however, an annoying problem that I was not able to understand - the machine has troubles to shutdown. It seems that something is still finishing, only the desktop background image is shown and it stays this way for minutes. The only way to shutoff the machine is by long pressing the shutdown button. Sometimes the screen fades to black and the cursor disappears but the machine does not shutdown.

MBP 2016 15", Mantis Venus, GTX 1080

Screen Shot 2018 05 15 at 20.43.26

Follow instructions to the letter. Ran script. Said to install web drivers which were already installed and then restarted. Tried installing with Mantis connected and without and hot plugged it after installation. Also tried logging out and back in again with it plugged in but nothing is registering the eGPU. No problems other than that everything is how it should be system runs normally. Web driver being used. System report shows nothing just internal chips. No icon at top registering eGPU...

Any thoughts?

Thanks for the script though...you lovely people rock! 🤘🏻😀🤘🏻

Hello again,
Running the newest version of the script (installed with the new easy command) after updating to the newest version of macOS (10.13.4 Security Update), now when running my Mac in clamshell mode, when I open my lid it crashes. I'm not sure if this is with the script or the new software update. When I close the lid it works as normal.

If the gpu is nvidia, the amd dgpu doesn't work with the Nvidia egpu, I would suggest disabling the dgpu using gswitch linked in the automated script forum
