Nvidia 343.01.02f03 Graphics Driver Update for OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite:
Nvidia has posted another Graphics Driver update for OS X 10.10.1 (Build 14B25) - 343.01.02f03. As of post date, the page still links to CUDA for OS X 6.5.25 which was reported to not work with the 343.01.02 Yosemite drivers - showing "CUDA Update Required", as CUDA 6.5.25 has (previous) .01 driver support but not .02.
(Dec 22nd Update: Report on a new 343.02.01f01 graphics driver for OS X Yosemite available via the Nvidia Prefs Panel. And of course it's not supported with CUDA 6.5.32/6.5.33, so stay with the 343.01.02f03 driver if you need CUDA until there's a supported CUDA update released.)

Dec 19th CUDA Update(s): It's not linked on the driver page or at their CUDA archives yet, but saw a post that CUDA 6.5.33 for OS X was available via Nvidia's pref panel. (I'm not using a Nvidia card to check this.) Early Dec. 19th, Nvidia posted a download page for CUDA 6.5.32 for OS X 10.10.x to 10.8.x. But a user confirmed there is a later CUDA 6.5.33 available via the Nvidia CUDA prefs panel, which one user said fixed the CUDA problem but he reported some other graphics issues in OS X 10.10.1. However the Dec. 22nd graphics driver update breaks CUDA 6.5.33 support.)

The following is related to CUDA v6.5.25 and Graphics driver 343.01.02
If you missed it earlier, previous info on CUDA 6.5.25 edits for the 343.01.02 graphics driver for OS X 10.10.1 are in later posts of this apple forum thread:

  1. Adding a 343.01.02 driver key to the CUDA info.plist - see this post but edit for 343.01.02, not the earlier .01 shown in the post. (Tip originally posted for earlier versions.)


  2. Copy the two CUDA lib files shown in this post, but remove the (accidental) space shown in the copy command example filenames - i.e. ..._classic.dylib (not _class ic.dylib) and ..._mercury.dylib (not mercu ry.dylib).

So far 1 user replied the edit tips worked, however another recently said that it didn't but not sure if he also added the .02 driver key (not just copying the lib files he commented on).

  As mentioned before, user mods like this should not be required if Nvidia would sync their CUDA and Graphics driver releases. If they're really dependent like this, why are they not seeing this problem in testing. (This is the second OS X 10.10.1 driver that doesn't work with the OS X CUDA 6.5.25 release of Nov. 19th - reportedly due to the fact the CUDA 6.5.25 release does not have support for the .02 graphics driver. CUDA 6.5.25 added .01 graphics driver support, but by the time it was released there was already a .02 driver update. The .01 driver was for OS X 10.10.0.)
