  1. ..so ... how did it go ?
  2. .. care to elaborate ? My understanding was that with Chameleon as boot loader it was a no-no because of the unsigned kexts ...
  3. update to 10.10.5 or to El Capitan ?
  4. Just updated to 10.10.1 without any issues, had to reapply TRIM patch for my SSD and overwrite AppleHDA to reenable sound
  5. I had VoodooHda loaded, but I like things to look as clean as possible, so I started fiddling with AppleHDA. In the end I had to: 1 - Download a patched hda from here: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/188-applehda-for-dell-latitude-e6400-idt-92hd71b7/ 2 - Edit Contents/PlugIns/AppleHDAHardwareConfigDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist and set LayoutID to 0 3 - Edit my dsdt and change the Audio section (renamed from AZAL to HDEF) to: Device (HDEF) { Name (_ADR, 0x001B0000) // _ADR: Address Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized) // _DSM: Device-Specific Method { Store (Package (0x04) { "layout-id", Buffer (0x04) { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 }, "PinConfigurations", Buffer (Zero) {} }, Local0) DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0)) Return (Local0) } } After these changes I have Speakers/Headphones/mic working using AppleHDA
  6. I have the same behaviour (black screen) unless I boot with dart=0 . Regarding the card not recognized, are you booting with graphicsenabler=yes? What device is listed in dpcimanager (http://sourceforge.net/projects/dpcimanager/)? I don't use the auto screendimmer,but the fn keys for setting the screen luminosity work flawlessly. The only button that isn't working is the power button
  7. You'll have to change the smbios to MacBookPro5,2, otherwise AGPM will never engage. (MacBookPro5,2 has the closest type of processor to the Q9300, as far as I can tell) I don't think you can use my SSDT files as my processor model is slightly different (Q9100) You'll have to dump them from linux by following this procedure: EXTRACT YOUR SSDT WITH UBUNTU Live CD (this is what i did) In Ubuntu open up terminal and enter the following commands: cd /home/ubuntu/Desktop sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/SSDT > SSDT.aml This will place the SSDT.aml on you desktop. Move this to a USB drive and then reboot into OSX. Once you are in linux you'll be able to dump all SSDT* files (and also the unmodified DSDT) then, after removing NullCpuPowerManagement and using my boot flags you should be able to boot and enable AGPM Audio: I'm using VoodooHDA, never connect audio to anything except headpones, so I never had the need for HDMI audio ... NVIDIA drivers: why should I update them, everything except sleep is working well on my rig ...
  8. I think for AGPM you won't need my DSDT/SSDT combo, you'll have to patch /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist for sure and eventually your DSDT to make them agree on naming. What SMproductname are you using in smbios.plist ? Depending on that you'll need to patch your DSDT or simply modify an entry in the Info.plist of AGPM kext Mattia

SW occupancy updated. this is an example of AGPM kicking in and raising clock/memory speeds when running a graphic intensive app (opengl viewer)the result is opengl viewer going from around 300 to around 1200 in the benchmarks, and the fans kicking in after a while, but stepping down when finished ... as it should be opposite to the fans always on and no stepping down without AGPM or the fans always off and AGPM not kicking in when not configured with correct parameters

I got it by trial and error, by putting NullCpu in /Extra/Extensions and booting alternatively wit DSDT=null -f (when I had panics with the DSDT and/or no NullCpu) and with DSDT=DSDT.aml DropSSDT=true when trying not to use Nullcpu.

  11. I have updated from 10.9 to 10.10 using xBeast tools (no links as per forum policies), and am running with speedstep and gpu power management. It took lot of reading and (as usual) gathering info from different sources. I got speedstep working with the attached DSDT and SSDt and a MacBookPro5,2 smbios.plist (NullCpu disabled). In order to have GPU power management working I had to patch my DSDT and rename all refernces to device AGP to IGPU, and all references to device VID to GFX0. That got AppleGraphicsPowerManagement kext to load without complaints. After that, I had to modify /System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext/Contents/Info.plist in the MacBookPro5,2 section and change it to: <key>MacBookPro5,2</key> <dict> <key>GFX0</key> <dict> <key>BoostPState</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>BoostTime</key> <array> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>ID</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IdleInterval</key> <integer>100</integer> <key>SensorOption</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>SensorSampleRate</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>TargetCount</key> <integer>1</integer> <key>Threshold_High</key> <array> <integer>50</integer> <integer>100</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_Low</key> <array> <integer>40</integer> <integer>80</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> </array> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>17</integer> </dict> <key>IGPU</key> <dict> <key>BoostPState</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>1</integer> <integer>2</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>BoostTime</key> <array> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> <integer>3</integer> </array> <key>Heuristic</key> <dict> <key>ID</key> <integer>0</integer> <key>IdleInterval</key> <integer>250</integer> <key>SensorSampleRate</key> <integer>4</integer> <key>TargetCount</key> <integer>5</integer> <key>Threshold_High</key> <array> <integer>300</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_High_v</key> <array> <integer>300</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> <integer>400</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_Low</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>87</integer> <integer>87</integer> <integer>87</integer> </array> <key>Threshold_Low_v</key> <array> <integer>0</integer> <integer>70</integer> <integer>85</integer> <integer>94</integer> </array> </dict> <key>control-id</key> <integer>16</integer> </dict> <key>LogControl</key> <integer>1</integer> </dict> With these mods I am at last able to use the machine with a decent level of fan noise and at the same time have the graphic card power up when needed (verified with opengl extension viewer) At the moment I am using VoodooHda for audio and would like to try AppleHDA only, but I'm stumped as to what the correct procedure would be.

  12. Hi mathieu, sorry for the late answer .... This is the info I get from lspci: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G96 [Quadro FX 580] (rev a1) 01:00.0 0300: 10de:0659 (rev a1) .. and the info from System Information->Graphics Display: [b]Unknown:[/b] Chipset Model: Unknown Type: GPU Bus: PCIe Slot: Slot-1 PCIe Lane Width: x16 VRAM (Total): 512 MB Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de) Device ID: 0x0659 Revision ID: 0x00a1 ROM Revision: 62.94.7F.00.0A In my com.apple.boot.plist I have set GraphicsEnabler to yes and that's about it .... as far as I know (translucent menu bar, DVD app working, flash working) QE/CI is enabled. What makes you think QE/CI isn't working for you ? Regards
  13. Request for DSDT for Dell M6400

    Hi ujen, you'll have to try the DSDTs posted here (http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=258845&st=20 ) .. the dsdt posted on post #28 is working for me (shutdown and restart working) regards Mattia PS: don't simply copy the dsdt over yours, we had problems exchanging dsdts (read: kernel panics) so had to manually apply the fixes to the ones working ... ymmv
