10.6.4 Update & CUDA GPU driver Following updating of OS X to 10.6.4 now asked to update CUDA dr

Following updating of OS X to 10.6.4 I get asked to update the CUDA driver

[quote]A version of the GPU Driver is installed on your system which requires an updated CUDA Driver. If you do not update the CUDA Driver, some CUDA-enabled applications may run slowly or cease to function properly[/quote]

Just wondered how important this reported mismatch is.

Note in the screen grab the contradictory messages regarding update required and the software being up to date.

You can also see that I am running the latest CUDA driver.

My understanding of this is that this won't affect how OpenCL works on OS X.

Please do advise.

Same message here. And Octane render, the only reason why I installed CUDA, doesn't lauch anymore. Instead it says: "No Cuda Capable Devices Found, Exiting…". I've allready reported this at their forums.

I got the same warning, but the CUDA sample programs still work fine for me.

Kind of annoying, this pops up every time I reboot.

yeah, I could solve that for now removing cuda pref.pane

Same here. Also noticed some window rendering problems (strange pattern under the bottom left and bottom right corners of some windows) on the first day or two. Definitely connected with the OS X update, somehow.

Based on a moderator from another forum, there is already a Release 19.5.8f03, located at http://"http//www.nvidia.com/object/geforce-macosx-19.5.8f03-driver.html%22, but the link is broken. It says that it is for:

* Improved OpenGL performance for Geforce GTX 285 under certain conditions
* Improved compatibility with recent Mac OS X Software Updates.

I needed to re-install Snow Leopard, and upgrade only to 10.6.3. Now I do not have the problem anymore!

Can someone confirm this, and can post the correct link?

Thanks,

Luis

Yup, it seems the graphics drivers for OSX are not working properly under 10.6.4,
For those using OpenCL it's still possible to get GPU context,
What you need to do is just inject those simple OpenGL initialisation:
[codebox] glutInit(&argc, (char**)argv);
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGBA | GLUT_DOUBLE);
glutInitWindowSize(256, 256);
glutCreateWindow("fake");[/codebox]
Then, the following line:
[codebox] err = clGetDeviceIDs(platform, CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU, devCount, devices, NULL);[/codebox]
is not returning error, and in my case proper device is detected: GeForce GT 330M,
Approach kind of around, but at least it works,
cheers, Tomasz

I tried posting about this earlier on but the forums kept swallowing my attempted messages.

I heard that Nvidia had released an updated driver due to a major performance issue with the GTX 285 and 10.6.4. Here's google's cache of the page: [url="http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:Ct3yQZj10d8J:www.nvidia.com/object/geforce-macosx-19.5.8f03-driver.html+19.5.8f03&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&"]http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/sear...&gl=us&[/url]

(No, the download link on the page doesn't work). Looks like they pulled the update for some reason.

Installed the new driver, but it didn't resolve the problem.
