In Topic: Half Display Problem with X3100 and 10.5.7

23 September 2009 - 09:11 PM

Hi,
Try this:

- Leave the Vanilla kexts for x3100 in place (but remove the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext)
- Remove all the kexts for gma 950
- use pacifist to extract the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext from the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 package and copy ONLY this to /System/Library/Extensions/ folder (alternatively, just install the whole Graphics Update 1.0 package, but make sure you remove the gma 950 kexts before you reboot)
- rebuild your kext cache and restart the system, it should come up on the internal LCD at full resolution (1680 x 1050 for me)
- don't delete the default AppleIntelIntergratedFrameBuffer kext

Let's know if it works.

I am currently trying to see if a fixed DSDT may help my sleep problem.

In Topic: Leopard Laptops with NON-working GMA X3100

20 September 2009 - 01:55 PM

Hi, I am posting this on an HP 6710b laptop with GMA X3100 (running SnowLeopard) at full resolution, though System Profiler doesn't mention QE/CI at all. I believe the following should work with Leopard too.
- Leave the Vanilla kexts for x3100 in place (but remove the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext)
- Remove all the kexts for gma 950
- use pacifist to extract the AppleIntelGMAX3100FB.kext from the Leopard Graphics Update 1.0 package and copy ONLY this to /System/Library/Extensions/ folder
- rebuild your kext cache and restart the system, it will come up on the internal LCD at full resolution (1680 x 1050 for me)
- don't delete the default AppleIntelIntergratedFrameBuffer kext

outstanding:
- sleep still doesn't work properly
- the DSDt from the HP 6710b is very buggy. I have got it to compile, but it seems to be missing quite a few devices. There are some samples from a Sony Viao with a similar X3100 card on one of the threads but I don't know if it will work on the HP.
- finally, is there a tutorial out there on how to generate the EFI string for the Intel cards (X3100) from scratch? I couldn't find the PDF hactrix2006 was supposed to have made and the gfxutil seems not to be for Intel cards. I can get my EDID, but how to get the EFI string still stumps me.

Thanks.

Hi Mackerintel, sorry to bother you but could you take a look at post #180 from me(any time would be fine). Thanks.
You may notice from the kexstat output that I dont have AppleIntelCPUPM and I do have the ACPIPowerSource in my ACPIPlatform Plugins subdirectory.
Thanks.

Hi Mackerintel/All, thanks for the help with compiling the buggy DSDT from my HP Compaq 6710b laptop. I installed the Chameleon with DSDT override. Placed the compiled dsdt.aml in the root of my OSX installation and rebooted the system. The screen went blank a few seconds after the desktop came up. I rebooted to single user and removed the dsdt.aml and was able to boot up. It appears the machine went to sleep due to wrong temperature value detection. Below are some entries from my system.log file. I have attached some more entries from my system.log and my kextstat output.
Is there a kext I need to remove or some basic issue with my dsdt.aml content?
Thanks.

Hi All,
Please find attached the DSTS (ASL) file from my HP Compaq 6710b. Like Ovof's issue, the extracted AML won't eveb compile at all without any modifications.
My goal is: any advance towards being able to sleep/wake the laptop and possibly a vanilla install (and support for 10.5.6). Right now, sleep doesn't work (iAtkos v4 patched to 10.5.5 with update combo).

The error I get when trying to compile the ASL is as follows.Can someone also help to indicate what changes I need to make to get it to compile and also solve all the various issues which is the purpose of this thread. Thanks.
