[SCRIPT] fr34k's macOS-eGPU.sh - one script, all solutions, fully automated
I used your script only. So upgrading to 17E202 would be the way to go? I have avoided this due to earlier issues with updates, but should be fine now yes?
OK, I can therefore conclude that you used my temporary script. You will have to call the install script. If it does not work, you must reinstall macOS. (Again: there is no need to delete all files, just reinstall macOS)
ah one problem might be your dGPU...
I haven't implemented yet all possible options for NVIDIA dGPUs or thunderbolt issues.
PP should see a boost in export. Yes for live rendering an eM is required. Even then ti might not work. I don't know how PP handles footage internally.
just run the script. It will automatically exit with a message if the patch has not been removed.
@ohsoweird et al
if you execute my script with the --checkSystem parameter it will output you the current wrangler version, this must obviously match with your current os build number:
e.g. -> AGW version [10.13.4:17E202]
if you need some testing just tell me while I have this machine (I need to sell it, it is not mine)
Updated to 17E202 and ran script, works almost perfect on iMac 2017 27" with Akitio Node Pro and GTX1080ti.
eGPU can only be powered on when at login window or already logged in. When powered at login window the identifier also shows correct GPU model, otherwise reports "null".
Hey. I just installed the script and when I try and use my eGPU my laptop screen stops displaying (still backlit though) and my main monitor displays picture but it completely unusable. It is ridiculously slow. The entire OS is lagging like crazy. I had this same problem with the temporary fix script (well not when i first installed it, it worked perfectly, but then I accidentally installed the security patch and I had this exact same problem)
Installed using the script: the script downgraded the Nvidia drivers to 103 (from 107), otherwise everything went fine. GTX1080ti shows up properly and benchmarks ran OK for CUDA, but very slowly for OpenCL & Metal.
However, the OS X UI slowed down to the point of unusability: lots of of SBOD and 30-40seconds between clickable actions. I upgraded the Nvidia driver back to 107 and that brought the OpenCL & Metal benchmarks back to what they should be, but made no difference to the UI.
So I've disconnected the Core v2 pending being able to resolve that - any ideas here?
Interesting: hot plugging activates the built-in screen, not the external monitor. System preferences show that the GTX is being used by both monitors, but the external one won't fire up.
@fr34k @Technomad exact same thing happening to me. I have my external set as default so it won't even let me login if I try booting up w/out it then plugging it in cause my login details display to the main monitor. haven't tried changing it around yet
also hot-unplugging (is that even a thing) it restarts my comp. is that normal?
