Quadro 4000 driver and CUDA driver update for Mac OSX

We have seen many reports that a conflict between the drivers for some Nvidia cards and the Mac OSX v10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and v10.7 (Lion) updates caused problems with various software, including Adobe Premiere Pro.

Here are instructions from our colleagues at Nvidia for updating the drivers to fix these problems:

The CUDA 4.0.21 driver is now posted that officially supports Mac OSX v10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) and v10.7 (Lion). These are the steps needed to ensure that the CUDA driver is installed properly. We are in the process of updating the CUDA automatic driver update so users will get this notification automatically.

Here are the installation steps for Quadro 4000 for Mac on Mac OSX v10.6.8 and v10.7:

  1. Install the Mac OSX update (if you haven’t already done so).
  2. Install the Quadro 4000 driver for Mac 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard).

    (Note: This driver was last updated on 6/24/2011 and is still the correct driver.)
    After installation, it will ask to reboot.
  3. Install the CUDA for Mac driver (4.0.21) from this direct link.
