    Asus 1201N Installation and support

    Good call listing those kexts, mate! Take away all the ApplePS2s, they interfere with VoodooPS2. (Then rebuild your /Extra/Extensions kextcache, of course). You won't need that prefpane either, but don't delete that right away.

    Search these forums for a user called "HotKoffy". He's made a beautiful kext.

    ACPI Backlight Display driver

    Now I'm using YOUR dsdt, and even then the display doesn't bind. Suggestions?

    Sorry about that. I have an ASUS 1201N, BIOS version 0326, OSX 10.6.6. I think I may be using more Extensions than I need... These are from /E/E: Extensions.zip In S/L/E, I have your Backlight and Hotkeys kexts. dsdtNewt.aml.zip

    You might just need to rebuild your kext caches, 'cause VoodooPS2.kext may not be perfectly installed. Use KextUtility or other such tool (or type in the terminal commands if you know them). Then shut down your computer and turn it on again. The BIOS resetting thing probably happens because of the hard reboot, and should stop when you're not forced to do that. I've also seen in happen unexpectedly when I RESTART the OS instead of shutting-down-and-then-booting-up-again, but I'm not very sure of that...

    Ookay, Hotkoffy. This has gone mostly beyond my stack of knowledge, and I'm relying on you pretty blindly. I've corrected my DSDT, but that doesn't change anything. Now I'm using YOUR DSDT, and the problem still persists. This is my 'ioreg | grep display' output: | | | +-o NVDA,Display-A@0 <class IONDRVDevice, id 0x1000002d9, regi$ | | | | +-o display0 <class IODisplayConnect, id 0x10000039c, regi$ | | | | | +-o AppleBacklightDisplay <class AppleBacklightDisplay, $ | | | +-o NVDA,Display-B@1 <class IONDRVDevice, id 0x1000002da, regi$ | +-o IODisplayWrangler <class IODisplayWrangler, id 0x100000121, register$ Is the kext loaded? Is "Apple Backlight Display" what we're looking for? Uhh.... Also, I have an AppleBacklight.kext in /S/L/E. If I remove that, the Function keys (for brightness) stop showing anything at all. Just to recap, my issue is this: The kext WORKS, but partially. It displays the little sun symbol when I press Fn+Brightness, but there are no white bars that increase or decrease. And the brightness slider in SysPrefs is always at max.

    You've not made changes to your DSDT, I'm guessing. Use HotKoffy's (brilliant) DSDT from his first post, if you don't know how to modify your current DSDT. Replace the one in your /Extra folder, and change com.apple.boot.plist accordingly. Or, ignore the plist, and just rename the new DSDT to the same as the original one in your Extra folder. Cool. Trying it right now.

    Sorry! The problem: The brightness slider stays at its maximum extremity (OSX thinks the brightness is always max). The BIOS still controls brightness, but the Hotkey displays no change. I've attached my DSDT, and also images of the problem. Please check it out. dsdtNewton.dsl.zip PS- Yes, I have 2GB. And yes, I changed those device names when I compiled...

    Hey, HotKoffy. I'm using your DSDT (from the first post of this topic), and have this problem: The hotkey brightness indicator shows up, but the white bars don't increase or decrease. The slider doesn't work either. The Before i modify my original DSDT, can you think of why this might be happening?

    Is this DSDT otherwise the same as the latest one going around on the 1201n thread? The one adapted by VMonHeros to allow for chameleon's cpu energy management? 2GB of RAM or 4? Innovative work! The hotkeys thing could be handled by unloading/reloading kexts after sleep, but this is neat.

    Uhh, you're not, my man... Install the update BEFORE rebooting. Those kexts are for use with 10.6.4. So you empty /Extra, run the 1201n package, run the Kext Utility, and install the update, all without rebooting. Then boot up again. @VMonHeros Nice post! BTW, is the 1201n Installer v4's Chameleon version RC4 or 5?
