In Topic: 10.4.9 Source Released

07 May 2007 - 06:46 PM

Okay, now that everything has been said and done, and all the craziness has been finished, can you get back to why this thread was started? The 10.4.9 kernel sources are out, there are a bunch of amd/sse2 user who need a functional kernel. Apparently kiko has one working, so without further ado can we just a get some info on where and when it will be live.

In Topic: HowTo - SSE3 Kernel with Sleep + SpeedStep

often, so does my laptop, that is what this is really for, the videostate is not being reinitalized by hardware, i think they expect "windows" to do it, but alas nothing. So it was the fix.

As for the no /proc, i was reading about it here http://www.kernelthr...ac/apme/procfs/, someone tried to port procfs over but with no luck, that does however mean that indeed all the data is there, we just need to get our hands on it.

happy hacking : )
(my 10.4.8 SSE2 ISO just finished, so i am going to try to be more helpful now) I am really just getting to the point where i can really code stuff that matter (just finshed my second year).

thanks kiko, I thought that this had been integrated with the SSE3 semthex kernel, and for some reason was not being done this for the SSE2 kernel, that is obviously not the case.

Also what about a source tree for the new throttling kext? I know the one that is currently used was based off the original Neils one for 8.4.1, but a recent one would not be bad. I really want to try my hand at maybe modifying it a bit to allows for defining states based on aribitrary Vcore/multipler pairs like RMClock does in windows.

Finally, and i don't know if this will help with sleep, but i had an insane time with sleep in linux on my laptop. A very similar problem happened, i would sleep, but i woke up, it either did not return the display state, or would crash instantly. So i did something rather simple, I dump the videocard state on sleep, and reloaded on wake, that way i ensured that everything was reinitialized properly, maybe this might help.

here is the script (no credit here, i did not write it)

# discover video card's ID
ID=`lspci | grep VGA | awk '{ print $1 }' | sed -e 's@0000:@@' -e 's@:@/@'`

# securely create a temporary file
TMP_FILE=`mktemp /var/tmp/video_state.XXXXXX`
trap 'rm -f $TMP_FILE' 0 1 15
# switch to virtual terminal 1 to avoid graphics
# corruption in X
chvt 1
# write all unwritten data (just in case)
# dump current data from the video card to the
# temporary file
cat /proc/bus/pci/$ID > $TMP_FILE
# suspend
echo -n mem > /sys/power/state
# restore video card data from the temporary file
# on resume
cat $TMP_FILE > /proc/bus/pci/$ID
/etc/init.d/networking restart
# switch back to virtual terminal 7 (running X)
chvt 9
sleep 4
# remove temporary file
rm -f $TMP_FILE

I was wondering why no work had been done to port this to SSE2? Also is there a source patch of the kernel tree anyone can download, you know to tool around with?

I promise to post something come tuesday of next week, sorry, I have been really busy lately and have not gotten around to doing anything at all related to OS X86, not that i am need much anymore these days with all the good hackers around. : ). But i will get around to it then, just pester me, but right now i have two algorithm courses, and two midterms, a programming project and alot of reading., but i will post id and all that stuff later, maybe even get around to a generic laptop install guide for the genius bar.

sorry for the delay, i bought a stopgap measure for my OSx86 fix (a barebottom macbook) and have not had time in a while. seven days a week i work or am at school till 5. But I promise to get to it.
