I started getting emails when 3184.108.40.206.40.108 dropped, and since then I tried to install it myself.
(Sad Trombone Sound here)
This email sums up the issue nicely:
I recently updated my drivers to the 3220.127.116.11.40.108 when they became available in my Nvidia driver App. After the routine update thats had no issues before, I noticed the mac dock turned solid white instead of being transparent. The system became very sluggish as well. Graphic issues for sure. So I uninstalled the driver and returned to the previous driver I was using, 318.104.22.168.40.105. Still the issue remained.
I tried purging the ram and restarting and leaving the computer unplugged for a while before turning the power back on. Still the same issue. I do not have any other gpu installed.
I did see some similar sounding issues on the blog but I’m not sure if it’s the same problem or not.
Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.
Basically, we are leaving the 10.13 Web Drivers like we began them. With a very picky installer/OS combo prone to "white dock syndrome".
When I installed 108 via the Nvidia Control Panel, I got a "Metal Error" on next boot. Then the Finder began an endless crashing cycle. Switching back to Apple Default drivers let me get to desktop, but only because I was using a GT630. A flashed Titan Xp also got to desktop, but had white dock and when windows were moved they left trails.
So, once again we have some sort of library validation error, just like 10.13's first Web Driver.
Here is how I fixed:
0. If you are in boot loop or finder crashing, do a PRAM reset, will kick it back to default OS driver. EFI flashed cards will work on next boot with software rendering, non-EFI will stay black.
1. Use terminal to verify that CSRutil is running. Type "csrutil status". If it is not enabled, it needs to be. Resetting PRAM will do this, or you can boot into Recovery and turn it on there. "csrutil enable" will work there, but lot quicker to PRAM it. Will also blow out any other oddities in the NVRAM.
2. If you have already installed a broken/borked 108, open the Driver Control Panel and use your admin password to enable the "Uninstall" button on lower right. Hit it and run the uninstaller. It should force a reboot at end, if not do one anyway.
3. Next boot, first open the Security & Privacy Control Panel. Choose the "General" tab. Hit the Padlock so you can mod the status after entering password. If you haven't already allowed "App Store and Identified Developers" to run, do so now. Keep this window open off to the side.
4. Run the 108 Installer again. At some point you should see a. notice pop up on the "Security" control panel stating that Nvidia has been blocked. Hit "Allow" and it should be all good.
5. Come back here and post your results.

I received the 108 update through NVIDIA's update system.

My issues were very minor. Upon installing the 108 driver, I got the "Gatekeeper" install/OK window, and was slow to react to it. Upon restart, no acceleration. Went to "Security & Privacy" loaded the errant extension and restarted and voila, everything back to normal. So, to get this to work, you MUST install the extension.

Didn't work at first also the security window closed during the install not allowing me to "allow"NVIDIA. When I rebooted everything was the same. I opened my security pane and then it said NVIDA had been blocked, I then allowed it, uninstalled the driver again and rebooted and this time everything was OK apart from the fact I still cannot use 2X1080tis. With both cards powered my mac pro 5.1 12 core 3.46 ghz doesn't fully boot and the screen goes black. Thanks for this fix anyway!

I have the same problem with 2xTitan Xs (Maxwell) cards. The only driver I've found to work with dual cards is 322.214.171.124.25.106 with 10.13.6. Hopefully by the time Mojave releases Nvidia can fix this.
Mac Pro 5.1 with flashed GTX 980 been running flawlessly for 3 years, updates no problem until 108 !! Same problem sluggish, repeating windows in the background etc etc... Still in contact with Nvidia support, tried everything. They said to reinstall 105 after cleaning everything via Terminal - still the same.
9/2/2018 02:23:12 pm
I had the same problems of trailing windows and opaque dock after installing 108 drivers. Even after uninstalling 108 and reinstalling 105, the problems persisted. I followed the above instructions and reinstalled 108 and all is perfect now. The key step was allowing the KEXT to load in the Security and Privacy preference pane after 108 installation restart. Then reboot one more time. I'm running a Mac Pro 5,1 with a GTX680.

Are you able to drive more than one screen with this drivers with your GTX 980 ?
9/3/2018 06:25:37 am
Hi Donald, I will try your method, however I cannot find 108 seems Nvidia have removed it - have you got a link perhaps??

I had to do it twice but the procedure worked for me! 108 driver appears to be running normal now.
9/6/2018 01:31:30 pm
Thanks for this. Followed the instructions and it didn't work the first time because of gatekeeper, but after allowing the extension and then uninstalling and reinstalling again it seems to be working. Thank you!

For me it did not work..
9/10/2018 07:32:37 am
Even with Gatekeeper deactivated?
9/11/2018 08:45:48 am
I went through the steps listed above in the original post and was able to get my card working as it should. Of course after the fact I noticed that the driver was pulled. But now that my system is stable I'm probably just going to keep running the 108 driver, unless it gets wonky, at least until they release the official version.

The procedure described worked for me, re-installing WebDriver-3126.96.36.199.15.108 and CUDA Driver Version: 396.148 on my MacPro3,1 with GeForce GTX 770 4096 MB running High Sierra 10.13.6..
9/16/2018 07:33:52 am
Basically I thought whether I could not solve this problem unless the firewall was turned on by security and privacy settings.
9/26/2018 04:23:07 pm
Above I posted that following the instructions at the beginning of this thread allowed me to successfully install WebDriver-3188.8.131.52.15.108. On re-reading those instructions I see a clarification is needed. Resetting the PRAM allowed me to install the Nvidia driver, to select the driver in the Nvidia Driver Control Panel, and for my choice of Nvidia to remain after starting my Mac. However, I never got a notice from the Security control panel that Nvidia had been blocked, and so never had the option to Allow it. Still, the Nvidia drivers seemed to load, even though there were problems in graphics in Photos and iMovie and other places.
10/25/2018 11:10:29 am
My comment that this works was incorrect. My choice of the Nvidia web driver did remain selected after restart, but Photos was unstable, and iMovie would not launch. iMovie displayed a dialog stating hardware acceleration was required but not present. Trying to work through this issue I reset the Driver Manager back to Default macOS Graphics. Now when I try to choose Web Driver, my choice is reset back to Default macOS Driver on restart. In all of this the security control panel never asked to Allow the Nvidia extensions.

All OK now. I think my problem was buggy nvidia web drivers.

Totally worked, thank you:)

Thank you for posting this very informative article. I have been trying to determine when large, flat concrete gravestones were first used in New Orleans cemeteries. I have found two for 1905 burials but I don't know if the stones were laid at the time of burial. They are slab-like with small marble name plaques attached. Have you run across any similar gravestones in your New Orleans research?
