  1. MaLd0n: What did you end up trying on the DSDT?
  2. How to get rid of any Sound Assertions on AppleHDA

    I don't use an EFI bootloader (I use Chameleon). Here's how I fixed the issue (using Terminal): cd /System/Library/Extensions/AppleHDA.kext/Contents/MacOS sudo cp AppleHDA AppleHDA.backup sudo perl -pi -e 's|\x53\x6F\x75\x6E\x64\x20\x61\x73\x73\x65\x72\x74\x69\x6F\x6E\x20|\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00|g' AppleHDA Use Kext Wizard to rebuild your cache and repair permissions. Now I can actually get some use out of dmesg! Thanks for figuring this out, Alex!!
  3. [GUIDE] 1st Generation Intel HD Graphics QE/CI

    RE: FAQ item #10... The chirping/squeaking/whining/clicking/etc sound is not related to your audio, but is actually a side effect of the aggressive OSX power consumption model (search "that site that ends in x86" for "hackintosh squeaking noise"). The reason? Cheap parts in your laptop. There is a workaround: disable C states. Disabling C states has terrible consequences though (more load on your parts leading to shorter life, and less battery time). ThinkWiki has some great details for those with Thinkpads: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Problem_with_high_pitch_noises Anyway... Superb post, GhostRaider; thank you for all of your hard work!
  4. The OperationsRegions go right above the Scope _SB. These OperationsRegions are what the methods communicate; they correlate directly to memory in the physical hardware. Add this above your Scope _SB: OperationRegion (BRI1, SystemMemory, 0xD3048250, 0x08) Field (BRI1, AnyAcc, Lock, Preserve) { LEV2, 32, LEVL, 32 } OperationRegion (BRI2, SystemMemory, 0xD30C8250, 0x08) Field (BRI2, AnyAcc, Lock, Preserve) { LEVW, 32, LEVX, 32 } If you have your methods setup correctly you'll see the messages in your system.log (grep for ACPIBacklight). If your regions are correct, then the methods will be able to speak to your card.

Create a bootable Ubuntu USB stick (I like using unetbootin) and run 'lspci -s 00:02.0 -vvxxxx' as root. The line that says '10:', the first four bytes are your BAR (little endian). Read baongoc124's post and you'll be able to see more clearly. This is the easiest path to getting it.
  6. If you're ever having trouble falling asleep, this helps: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/#documentation/DeviceDrivers/Conceptual/IOKitFundamentals/Introduction/Introduction.html Got Xcode and subversion installed so I could fetch the source. Maybe I'll get to actually work on some code now. =)
  7. http://forge.voodooprojects.org/p/voodoosdhci/source/tree/HEAD/trunk/VoodooSDHC.cpp After reading the VoodooSDHC source, I'm betting you're right. Tailing the system.log while inserting a card shows the lines "in power_sd(slot) / baseclock / sd clock" then the machine locks. Mac development is far from my area of expertise, but I'm to tinker around with it and see if I have any luck.
  8. http://olarila.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=2709#p25506 Ricoh SD/MCC PCIe card reader works with modified linux opensoarce SDHC driver (recompiled for mac) There appears to be some hope for getting the SD card reader working. I've sent a message to this user, but so far, no reply. Anyone know what he's talking about?

    Has anyone had any luck getting the Ricoh SD Card Reader working?
  10. This issue is a real tough one to troubleshoot remotely; you're going to have to play around with it. Read my post for questions about point 2 and 5; read this for details on point 4.
  11. Make sure you have: 1. ACPIBacklight.kext loaded (run 'kextstat' and run 'grep ACPIBacklight /var/log/system.log') 2. All four ACPI methods in your PNLF Device (_BQC, _BCL, _BCM _DOS) 3. You've given a EisaId to your LCD Device 4. You have all the HasPanel, Haslid, backlight-control, boot-display and built-in properties set in your _DSM of your graphics device 5. You have the four lines in your _WAK 6. You have your OperationRegions set See my post (#68) for your "only works from lowest to middle", your levels probably need tweaking. I don't know of a good way to find the true upper limit besides trial/error. Mine ended up being 1600 decimal (0x0640)
  12. There's no way I could have gotten this far without your excellent write-up. Thanks so much for putting this together!
  13. Brightness and QE/CI are working flawlessly now on my T410 (Intel HD only) with OSX 10.8.3.
