Wanna make sure i'm doing this right ahead of time. First post.
So I am just waiting on my enclosure to come in the mail in the next day or two. I have been very diligent on this site (which is AMAZING) and have pretty much read every build out there.
My only concern is that I just want to make sure the downloads are up to date (mainly the alln1 installer) I just can't seem to find anyone recent that has mentioned anything with the newest mojave build (10.14.2)
I plan on only using this is Mac OS X for FCP X
Any tips before i embark on this journey would be greatly appreciated. This Forum is awesome and i wouldnt have purchased what i did if i didnt find out what i did i here. Thanks everyone!
@dabsanddrums Welcome aboard! Disable SIP in Recovery mode then run Purge-Wrangler and you should be good to go. I have ran 10.14.5 Beta 3 on a 2013 Mac Pro and RX 580 eGPU remains working great with Purge-Wrangler. For more details here is an overview of eGPU in macOS Mojave.
Awesome! Thank you so much @itsage I embark on my journey tomorrow morning.
I guess my last question is, after I write the script with purge wrangler am I supposed to reenable SIP? Or I think I saw it could be done if you add another script in terminal before you reenable. I could be dead wrong.
Man! Night and day difference over here! Ill post my full build log very very soon, but suffice it to say this forum has made this such a pleasurable experience.
Simply put, I was up and running in less than 10 min (including putting the card in the enclosure), After i ran the purge wrangler it read my rx580 immediately on reboot, I immediately noticed a difference in a final cut pro x timeline ive been working on, playback, full screen, with heavy effects (boris continuum and red giant suites) was a bit of a breeze. First luxmark scores were roughly 3500 with the iGPU and 15000 with the egpu.
Full report to come! (running internal display, and two external displays 1 hdmi, 1 DVI)
Thank you all!
