Ok, I'm here with an html file with system info from ubuntu live & lshw.

Is this file ok to compile a DSDT?


No :P This is good for other information, like the sound chipset etc, that way we can start to look for kexts/dsdt edits. To extract a dsdt from linux, follow the following guide: .....
Search for extract dsdt linux.

Still in the train, internet is even to slow to search, continues drops etc. Ah well, home in 2 hours.

Ok, i have the DSDT.aml

I followed this insturctions to the step 9:
https://docs.google....qdpo/edit?pli=1

Now i have a Vanilla DSDT right?

ps. Opening DSDT.aml with chameleon wizard results in a second file, DSDT.dsl, both file are in the zip. I opened it on my desktop pc just for curiosity.

This is a vanilla dsdt, or should be. The DSL is a decompiled AML :) Just got home, will have a quick look this evening, probably start working on it in the morning. If you want to edit it yourself, to get familiar with DSDT, you can use DSDT Editor to do so.

I do not know where to start!
Can you explain me? Or can you edit it for me?


I believe that I did not understand what DSDT is! :(

http://www.insanelym...or-and-patcher/

Download the utility and open your DSDT with it.
Now click IASL, if you are lucky (which you are not :P) the dsdt wil compile. In your case i get: see attachment.
This means you need to fix the errors and warnings. Some i know how to fix, others i just type in google. (Working on it right now, so you don't need to, but you can learn something from it)
When the errors and warnings are gone, you can start applying patches. The most common come with the utility, click on patch, open, and navigate to the DSDT folder, there is a folder with patches you can apply, i don't know which ones you need, still have to look in too it :)

After you have applied the patches, you click compile, if an error comes up, fix it, by clicking on the error, the program will go to that line.

If it compiles, put the DSDT.aml in /Extra folder. (An error can always occur, also a not bootable system.)

Edit: The screen is already without errors :P You had 3 of them, click on fix errors and they will be gone.

Edit 2: Did not read correctly, a DSDT file makes it possible to get your installation as vanilla as possible, it will inject information into OSX to load genuine Apple drivers, instead of replacements downloaded from the web. Think of speedstep, sleep, audio, video, ethernet, etc.. :)

Ok, I do not speak English very well and do a little 'hard to understand everything.
Do you think I can try to prepare the dsdt file or is it better if I leave it to you? :D

You can do it, but i did it already :P In the attachment, i included the fixed DSDT, and the applied patches.
I left out the audio patch, and some unneeded ones. Still have to look at the html file you have attached.

:D TNX!! VERY TNX!! I must do a gift to you next xmas!!

Boot is OK. Now I can set different value for brightness!!

There's only a little problem.

It seems that the highest brightness is less bright than usual. as if she could move again but the bar does not allow it.

Should I put DSDT.aml into Extra folder or i have to do other action?

Other questions are about Chameleon Bootflags (c2 state, c3 state, etc etc).

In front of each option I wonder "I need to activate or deactivate?" : D

I'll post a screenshot.

In the Extra folder, where org.chameleon.Boot.plist is located. Now, if booting fails, boot with the following flag:
DSDT=No

And back :)

The patches are included in the DSDT, only included them as a reference :)
I removed a few lines which where not needed, not sure about the rest, you can test this, write them down, delete one, reboot, if all goes well, you can leave it out, if not, boot with the flag, and add it to the plist again.

About the brighness control, can't help with that, sorry, my display is also a bit darker than it could be, but it does not disturb me, so i never bothered :P
The Intel, we should be able to inject this in to the DSDT, but not today anymore :P

For sleep, i have to give you this link: http://olarila.com/f....php?f=9&t=1003
Third post in English.

If it does not help, we should extract a SSDT, also something for tomorrow :)

Maybe an other efi string for the hd4000 can give me more brightness or it is a stupid idea? :D

No. You can open up System Preferences, then Displays, and change the brightness.
If it is maxed, dunno, remove the DSDT for now, if it really is to dark.

I found a post with similar low backlight problem, it seems to be related to AppleSmartBatteryManagement.kext
Do you think i can try another kext in substitution?

Good night to you and tnx again
