Well, guess what I just did? The security thing bugged me after all (no pun intended).A secure and convenient way to solve this is to have AMFI recognize the NVIDIA web drivers as platform binary. However, considering that we only need a temporary workaround until the next macOS release bundes Pascal drivers (or, better yet, fixes the problem), I wouldn't want to invest the time into programming such a complex and fragile construct around AMFI.
A kernel extension with equal effect but no security impact is available at:
I strongly recommend every user of the old kernel extension to switch over to the new one. I'll keep the old project online and unmodified, because disabling library validation system-wide is useful for other purposes (though you don't want to have it disabled on your desktop system. Really.)
The original download page now points to the new project, too.
Pinging @UtterDisbelief, @boywithaxe and @D-vise, because we specifically discussed this issue in the last few posts.
