CUDA (8.x, 9.x) problems with MATLAB (2017b) and Mac OS (10.12.6)

No matter if you mess around with energy savings ("GPU auto switch") or force your GPU to select either intern or discrete GPU mode ("gfxCardStatus" application): this thing will not work! Best way to use parallel computing in MATLAB though, uninstall CUDA and use MATLAB's "parallel cpu toolbox", or use an eGPU.         *This only holds for Apple MacBooks with an internal discrete GPU e.g. NVidia GT650M or GT750M (so models before 2016)

Uninstall Nvidia CUDA (8.x, 9.x) on Mac OS 10.x

According to http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-installation-guide-mac-os-x/index.html#uninstall  running just sudo /usr/bin/uninstall_cuda_drv.pl should be enough to uninstall any version of NVidia's CUDA driver, but ... it fails (there's no such file at all)! So, I went through the following steps semi-manually to remove it successfully: sudo /Developer/NVIDIA/CUDA-8.0/bin/uninstall_cuda_8.0.pl sudo /Developer/NVIDIA/CUDA-9.0/bin/uninstall_cuda_9.0.pl sudo rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/CUDA.kext sudo rm -rf /Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework sudo rm -rf /Library/LaunchAgents/com.nvidia.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist sudo rm -rf /Library/PreferencePanes/CUDA/Preferences.prefPane sudo rm -rf /System/Library/StartupItems/CUDA sudo rm -rf /Developer/NVIDIA/CUDA* sudo rm -rf /usr/local/cuda Restart your system and "right-click" and remove the CUDA preference icon in the system control app.

Fix missing libraries of an existing Mac OS binary by adding a correct @rpath command

Adding missing library path to an existing OS X binary: For example: open tracker (see https://github.com/opentrack/opentrack) misses the correct relative @rpath: otool -l /Applications/opentrack.app/Contents/MacOS/opentrack.bin | grep @rpath name @rpath/QtWidgets.framework/Versions/5/QtWidgets (offset 24) name @rpath/QtGui.framework/Versions/5/QtGui (offset 24) name @rpath/QtNetwork.framework/Versions/5/QtNetwork (offset 24) name @rpath/QtCore.framework/Versions/5/QtCore (offset 24) Where @rpath is at: Load command 28 cmd LC_RPATH cmdsize 56 path /Users/sthalik/dev/opentrack/build/install (offset 12) Load command 29 cmd LC_RPATH cmdsize 56 path /Users/sthalik/Qt5.5.1/5.5/clang_64/lib (offset 12) Wrong path set for local Qt's libraries In order to fix this: we should add a custom @rpath for all libraries not being deployed with the executable or being linked with libs…

Update1: ORF HD problems fixed with eyetvcamd 2.0c1 Update2: If you need help to setup eyetvcamd with EyeTV and OSCam see: Here Because of eyetvcamd having several problems with the latest version of OS X I decided to spend my sunday in order to fix those: First of all EyeTV 3.x is still a 32bit binary, so do not expect an eyetvcamd 64bit version as long as Elgato does not update its EyeTv software.
