Mac OS/X removing CUDA

Post by sunbeamrapier » Sun Mar 10, 2013 5:43 am

If you have installed CUDA, only to find it doesn't work, you may want to remove the software. There is no "uninstall" routine from Nvidia, but they kindly gave me the list of things to remove: Note that these instructions refer to the HDD:System/Library directory, and the HDD:Library directory, but you will find them all: (where HDD = name of your system disk)

Delete the following:

/System/Library/Extensions/CUDA.kext
/Library/Frameworks/CUDA.framework
/Library/LaunchAgents/com.nvidia.CUDASoftwareUpdate.plist
/Library/PreferencePanes/CUDA/Preferences.prefPane
/System/Library/StartupItems/CUDA/

If you installed the tookits and samples, delete the following also:

/Developer/NVIDIA/CUDA-5.0
/usr/local/cuda
