  1. @onejay09 - I just wanted to let you know that your brightness fix is working for the Thinkpad T61 (Nvidia graphics) running High Sierra 10.13.5. Thanks again for great work! My system config is as follows: Laptop: Lenovo Thinkpad T61 CPU: Penryn T9300 RAM: 8GB DDR2 Graphics: Nvidia Quadro NVS 140m (Nvidia Web Driver 387. OSX: High Sierra 10.13.5 (HFS+) Bootloader: CLOVER (Legacy) r4509
  2. Yes. System Version: macOS 10.12.6 (16G1408) Kernel Version: Darwin 16.7.0 Boot Volume: OSX Boot Mode: Normal
  3. After I applied Security Update 2018-003 to Sierra 10.12.6, NVidia Web Driver 378.05.05.25f08 is now "incompatible" and has been disabled by NVidia Driver Manager (automatically switched to OSX Default Graphics Driver). Tried uninstalling and reinstalling web driver with same result.
  4. I stumbled upon this very old thread while researching options to revive my old GA-G31M-S2L. The GA-G31M-S2L fully supports 8GB (2x4GB) DDR2 memory. My system config is as follows. OSX: High Sierra 10.13.5 (APFS) Bootloader: Clover (Legacy) 4558 Motherboard: GA-G31M-S2L (BIOS F10f) CPU: Intel Xeon E5450 (771 > 775 conversion) RAM: 8GB DDR2-800 (Mushkin Silverline 996762 2x4GB kit) Graphics: NVidia 8600GTS 256MB (Web Drivers 387. System HD: SSD I recently purchased the 8GB RAM on Ebay for $40 and the CPU for under $15. Very inexpensive way to revive this great socket 775 board.
  5. @onejay09 - thanks again for your help and advice. I tried various combinations of Info.plist mods (Adding a new Machine entry with my Board ID and GFX0, adding GFX0 to the MacBookPro6,1 Machine entry and adding a Vendor/Device entry to the Board ID and MacBookPro6,1 Machine entries. I thought these might make a difference, but after comparing GPU temps and frequencies to those reported in Windows 7, I'm not seeing any difference. It appears as though AGPM is natively detecting and handling power management of the NVidia Quadro NVS 140m without any Info.plist mods. Thanks again.
  6. @onejay09 - your instructions at https://github.com/onejay09/osx refer to changes that are required for graphics power management. I've read your last paragraph that begins with "AppleGraphicsPowerManagment.kext: to have better power management..." and admit that I don't know enough to understand. Would you mind elaborating on your instructions to dumb them down a little for me? My Thinkpad T61 with Nvidia Quadro NVS 140m (running Sierra) is configured as a MacBook Pro 6,1. I reviewed the info.plist in AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext and I know my Board ID, but that's as far as I got. My graphics is named GFX0 in my DSDT, so are your directions saying that I could simply replace Mac-2BD1B31983FE1663 in the info.plist with my Board ID? Thank you.
  7. Thank you for developing IntelMausiEthernet.kext. I don't want you to waste time supporting old Ethernet hardware, but could you please confirm that IntelMausiEthernet.kext does NOT support Intel 82566MM? I'd like to confirm before spending any more debugging time. Thank you. Details below. I have Sierra 10.12.6 running almost perfectly on my old Thinkpad T61 with Intel 82566MM Ethernet (Sleep, Shutdown, Sound, Backlight.... all work perfectly). The only problem I'm aware of is loss of Ethernet after wake from sleep. I'm currently using AppleIntelE1000e.kext v3.3.6. I built version 2.3.0 of your kext (target 10.12) and installed, but my Ethernet is not detected. I carefully followed your instructions (removing AppleIntelE1000e.kext, deleting preferences plists, removing the interface from SysPrefs, reboot, installing your kext and rebuilding kextcache), but the interface is not detected. I suspect this is one of the older chips that your kext does not support. I'm not asking you to waste time on old hardware, but could you confirm that your kext does not support Intel 82566MM Ethernet? Thank you.
  8. @onejay09 - Thank you! Your AppleBacklightInjector.kext fixed backlight on my Thinkpad T61 / Sierra. Previously, I was able to control my backlight with Bergdesign's Brightness (annoying, since I had to restore backlight levels after sleep and after boot) and now with your solution my native SysPrefs->Display control works! Nice work! The complete solution for me was Follow your directions to create AppleBacklightInjector.kext and install in S/L/E Apply your PNLF patch Insert my desired default BacklightLevel value in config.plist Reboot Now, everything works except I lose my Ethernet connection when I wake from sleep. To restore, I need to toggle en0 down and up. I'm using AppleIntelE1000e.kext version 3.3.6 which I think has this known issue. My system is as follows: Lenovo Thinkpad T61 Dual-boot Windows 7x64 / OSX Sierra Clover (Legacy) 4439 Penryn T9300 8GB DDR2-800 256GB SSD
