    Yes, 10.8.5 broke compatibility. See here and look for posting #17.

    This problem is caused by the Apple 10.8.5 supplemental update.

    The nVidia 10.8.5 web driver works fine with Mac OS X 10.8.5, but it breaks after the installation of the 10.8.5 supplemental update over the Mac OS X 10.8.5 update.

    This is the reason, why you can not install the 313.01.03f01 web driver. The nVidia driver panel switches back to the built in 10.8.5 driver (310.40.00.10f02). For most people the Apple supplied driver works fine. So this should not be a immediate problem.

    I guess that nVidia will release an updated 10.8.5 driver soon. So the only option you have is showing a little patience. :cool:

    And for the life of me, I can't figure out why Apple decided to call this OS update 10.8.5, Supplemental Update and not 10.8.6. Apparently there was enough of a change to cause video drivers to stop working. And it's already causing confusion:confused:
