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  running just sudo /usr/bin/ 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/ sudo /Developer/NVIDIA/CUDA-9.0/bin/ 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.

EyeTV with OSCAM and eyetvCamd (supports libusb, smartreader, smargo, USB, SSL, OS X 10.11.x, 64Bit) A Mac OS X Oscam server with USB support for external readers

OSCam with ssl, libusb support - os x changed its ssl library support - libusb must be installed for external usb cardreader support 1. I recommend "brew" to install openssl 1.1. /usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL" 1.2. brew install openssl 1.3. this will install openssl to /usr/local/Cellar/openssl/xxx/ 1.4. as oscam will look for openssl in /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib you are welcome to link or copy it there manually 2. download libusb from here 2.1 configure, make, make install it 3. build oscam with ssl and usb support 3.1. get scam sources here: svn checkout oscam-svn I recommend to checkout…

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 misses the correct relative @rpath: otool -l /Applications/ | 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…

Smartcard Reader Library for Atmel32u4 and Arduino (ISO-7816) Protocol T1 T=1

Info: For those of you who are interested in building their own Arduino based smart card reader/writer interface with the commonly used T=1 protocol (see ISO-7816). - See the hardware sketch in order to get a feeling for the hardware setup! - Feel free to look at the Example.cpp to get into to my library with "ease"! -  If you want to use a cpu timer as external clock, see the following: /* * See Atmel32u4 - Specification at Page 90ff * Frequency = Clock / (2 * N * (1 + OCR1A)) * N = Prescaler Factor: 1,8,64,256,1024 * * 8Mhz: * Frequency =…

EyeTV freezing solved: eyetvcamd with OSCAM with CCCam (new Proxy and Splitter)

Hey guys, Proxies: It took me quite some effort to test/verify all the buggy OSCam versions that are not capable of sharing key requests/answers free of freezers. The essence of my findings is that OSCam version 1.20 r 10009/10010 broke the possibility to split a single line into several "client lines". This has to do with caching methods introduced in 1.20 r10000+. Easy fix: do not use OSCam 1.20 revision > 10000! Download LineSplitter Publish: As many of u ask me to publish sources of eyetvcamd (ORF HD Fix): I actually think about it, but I am still working on it...…
