    HFW reacted to 3.14r2 in Apple finally announces all-new Mac Pro   
    Don't know what about you guys, but I can hardly resist the intention of labelling trash bins I see when walking the city streets, with Apple's logo. It's getting harder and harder to resist.

    I think I'm gonna start my own forum about freedom of speech and ban everyone who disagrees with me.

    HFW got a reaction from RedJohn91 in ATI Radeon HD 5xxx/6xxx   
    Based this on some code I found for ATI Radeon HD 5770 in DSDT... posted it in the topic for ATI 5770. There's probably some code here that isn't actually needed for injection of Framebuffer and whatever else is needed but I'm not sure what's safe to remove =/

    Device (GFX0) { Name (_ADR, Zero) Name (_PRW, Package (0x02) { 0x09, 0x05 }) OperationRegion (PEGH, PCI_Config, Zero, 0x40) Field (PEGH, ByteAcc, NoLock, Preserve) { VID0, 16, DID0, 16 } Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) { If (LEqual (Arg0, Buffer (0x10) { /* 0000 */ 0xC6, 0xB7, 0xB5, 0xA0, 0x18, 0x13, 0x1C, 0x44, /* 0008 */ 0xB0, 0xC9, 0xFE, 0x69, 0x5E, 0xAF, 0x94, 0x9B })) { If (LNotEqual (And (VID0, 0xFFFF), 0xFFFF)) { Store (Package () { "@0,compatible", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "@0,name", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "@1,compatible", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "@1,name", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "@2,compatible", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "@2,name", Buffer () { "ATY,Vervet" }, "AAPL00,blackscreen-preferences", Buffer () { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x08 }, "AAPL01,Coherency", Buffer () { 0x02, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "device_type", Buffer () { "ATY,VervetParent" }, "model", Buffer () { "ATI Radeon HD 5770" }, "name", Buffer () { "ATY,VervetParent" }, "hda-gfx", Buffer () { "onboard-1" } }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } Return (0x80000002) } }
    Of course, you'll need to know what PCIE address your GPU is at and add a device for that too.
    Vervet should of course be changed to the framebuffer for your card & I think you know what to do with model? And if anyone has suggestions for what else can be removed, shoot.
    I realise some don't like adding add-on cards to DSDT, so for those people, feel free not to use this. I personally don't like having to rely on kexts or Chameleon to get my GPU working.
    Hope this is useful to someone anyway...

    HFW reacted to Poco in Apple wins big in US, strikes out worldwide   
    I don't think any one can deny that the iPhone and iOS influenced Samsung. They would have been foolish not to look at it, tear it apart and see what made it a great phone. It's the same for Apple - When they were in the process of designing the iPhone, they would have taken a look at what they're future competitors were putting out as products.
    I think this raises the issue, where the line is drawn between inspiration and blatant copying? If someone put out a product which was literally identical to one already on the market then for sure it shouldn't be allowed. But if someone looks at something, takes parts they like and then improves on them, is this really an offence? Reminds me of the expression "standing on the shoulders of giants". I haven't used the devices so I don't know the specifics, but I think it's scary to have such basic elements being patented and then used in a multi-billion dollar lawsuit.

    Nobody wins, except for human stupidity.

    HFW reacted to THe KiNG in HWSensors   
    I fixed NCT677x plugin, at least for my setup but IMHO should work for others too.
    Limited the temperatures to 2: Sytem and CPU,, the Auxiliary, as rest of NCT677x capable sensors reading temperature require a much elaborated code since it depends on Vendor implementation (if more then 2 fans are implemented and stuff like that).
    OpenHardwareMonitor as Linux code is as best in beta stage, anyway they try to get max 3.
    Voltages, only CPU and 3V one are correct, rest require a math(see datasheet and programming guide) and since I cant bet on iStat(it does own math depending on specific key) I need to have them implemented in monitoring app/menuextra, or figure out how to compile those, if possible...
    Fans, only 2 are set for now, if you have more just add the desired name on FANINx entry in info.plist.
