[SCRIPT] fr34k's macOS-eGPU.sh - one script, all solutions, fully automated
@fr34k what do you mean about known issues? For hot-plugging and getting the external monitor to work? It's not that big of an issue for me, I'm fine to startup with it. I just wish I could get it to work with any games 🙁
I tried the updated nVidia drivers but with the same result.
Hey fr34k, great work!
I've got an issue which is most probably me not reading something properly!
I had previously installed using goalque's instructions and have uninstalled that solution with the uninstaller script and rebooted... however upon activation the new script is stopping and saying:
"You use the old wrangler patch. Please wait a little longer"
I take it this means there's not a solution for me yet? Just need clarification before I hit my head against this for a few hours :p
@fr34k minor issue at end of script, reboot didn't happen. Got this:
A reboot will soon be performed...
iMac:~ chris$ Password:
I thought it was asking for superuser permission again, but my password appeared as plain text... deleted + hit return, script ended, no reboot. Looks OK so far otherwise, let's reboot and find out.
OpenCL OpenGL does not work with NVIDIA dGPU + NVIDIA eGPU at the moment. Only Metal + CUDA.
@mac_editor Do you mean OpenGL doesn't work? Or OpenCL? I don't think OpenCL would affect something like the Heaven benchmark, right?
My bad... OpenGL lol. Well, both don't if I recall correctly.
Ah I've been ambiguous...
If you used @goalque's instructions there is no backup to get back from... (bad @goalque 😝)
You will need to perform the upgrade in order to get the new wrangler... (Or if you've backed it up then restore it... (including permissions (755) and ownership (root:wheel) and cache-rebuild, (steps 12-14)))
Why Password: appeared I don't know.
But it may just take about 15s to reboot. / will be busy and must be locked first...
@fr34k: after reboot, logged in with eGPU disconnected. Plugged in, eGPU detected, external screen (connected to eGPU) black but showed cursor. Logged out, external display came on, internal display now black 😀
Rebooted with eGPU connected, system shut itself down after the initial progress bar. Retried, it booted and logged in but with only the external display working and extreme lag.
Going to uninstall, and the security update has now appeared so I'll install that and try again.
