    nvidia-update - Simple way to install nVidia web drivers

    Waaaaait... hold up. @kingkongw24 Ignore my previous post. You've not copied the complete command. Please copy and paste the complete command.

    nvidia-update - Simple way to install nVidia web drivers

    Your error actually has nothing to do with nvidia-update, curl isn't working. Unfortunately, if you can't get curl to work then your system is likely in a pretty bad state. I'd suggest launching Disk Utility and running "First Aid" on your disk. Hopefully it's just a permissions issue...

    nvidia-update - Simple way to install nVidia web drivers

    I guess it's somewhat subjective, presumably the new drivers fix or improve something. However, based on user feedback, the general consensus is yes, they're bad. Hence why they've been added to the blacklist.

    nvidia-update - Simple way to install nVidia web drivers

    By any chance are you using a shell other than bash or zsh? If so, first launch bash (by simply typing bash and pressing enter), then paste the command again.

    .160 and .161 have been blacklisted, thanks to Github user chazeon for the patch.

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Thanks. Your Clover setup is quite a bit different than mine, of course it's hard to tell, because so is your hardware. However, the main thing that stood out to me was that "Inject NVidia" is presently false. Would you mind rolling back to .106 and enabling it? For testing purposes you don't...

    Hmm, interesting. Would you two mind sharing your Clover configurations?

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Not quite. We have already been provided with valid code signing certificates with kext signing permissions and can sign whatever we want. However, we're bound by Apple's developer agreement etc. so don't want to accidentally do anything that may get us in trouble. So as I've said, the kext...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Excellent, I've linked to your codeless kext here, so if I do end up trying that approach we can avoid duplication of work. The company I run (Glass Echidna Pty Ltd) has code signing permissions. I may be prepared to sign the kext. However, I can only do so if it's handled in a way that won't...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Ah, I certainly do like the sound of that a lot more than some of the alternative approaches. Nonetheless, it still sounds like a multi-step procedure and requires a fair bit of knowledge about what you're doing (which drivers will work etc.) However, I can't find the applet in post #11 you...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Nice! I actually really like the idea of approaching this issue from Clover. However, the solution may not be for everyone as you have to know what you're doing with Clover. Well, and use clover (this driver issue affects real Macs too). Another issue with a pure Clover approach is that what...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    @bogdanw I did consider that but seems as new drivers are nVidia certified for an OS release, they should at the very least "work", although as we can see they may have performance issues. Where is it's possible a OS update might cause the system to be totally incompatible with old drivers. So...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    @michelb76 Nice observation, I was just about to suggest keeping an eye on what hardware is involved. It's a bit of a juggling act with so many hardware setups but I'd like to keep nvidia-update's BLACKLIST in a state that works well for everyone. Or else I'm going to need to update the script...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (387.10.10.10.25)

    Hmm, we're getting contradictory claims about 387.10.10.10.25.158. Some users are saying they're laggy, whilst others are saying they're fine. It's significantly easier to report failure (observation of an abnormality) than it is success (no observation of an abnormality). The former is...

    nvidia-update - Simple way to install nVidia web drivers

    @Nautipuss Actually, I've just pushed a new version. No need to disable SIP. Tested on my Late 2013 15" MBPR, everything works nicely. Somewhat to my surprise, kext signing is not broken, because I've only modified Info.plist (a text file) and not the kext binaries.
