Might it be beneficial to permanently disable sip ?
It reenables itself after the initial boot after it was disabled, And any time I have problems the problems seem to go away once I launch with SIP disabled, don't even need to run purge wrangler? Is this normal ?

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

@dream3 It may resolve deep sleep issues with eGPU plugged in on mac notebooks. Disabling FileVault as well combined, may help.

Hi, what can i try to get this R280 (6GB) to work. Its only recognized as: 

AMD (0x1002) 
Device ID 0x6798

I tried to install the "automate-eGPU.kext", but after loading this happens: "

/Library/Extensions/automate-eGPU.kext failed to load - (libkern/kext) authentication failure (file ownership/permissions); check the system/kernel logs for errors or try kextutil(8)." 

Kext cache is already refreshed.

@fabz Try fixing permissions & refreshing cache:

sudo chown -R root:wheel /Library/Extensions
sudo chmod -R 755 /Library/Extensions
sudo touch /Library/Extensions
sudo reboot
