Hi,

 

question regarding fakeSMC (w/ NVClockX plugin) and probably related to dsdt,

i'm using m1330 (8400m gs) with dsdt from the OP

 

here's my kernel log

yes it the startup sequence of detection. ask more at projectosx

 

EDIT: i find if i set osid to the 'WindowsME" 0x04 i dont get this message. (likely due to the way it configures older os in ACPI and pci of our dells)

Sound

Is there a consensus on sound for STAC 9228 on M1330 and alike?

I like VoodooHDA, everything but internal speakers work.

I found internal speakers working on a version of AppleHDA, but nothing for the mics and inputs.

 

Is there any solution for all of it to work? (minus HDMI)

 

cores

I recently tried MacBook5,1 model as opposed to MacBookPro4,1. Not sure if I notice any difference, I still have this problem where one core runs 20deg cooler. Is this due to improper configuration somewhere? I have only noticed this since I reinstalled after a linux trial.

I added speed and clock keys because 2.39GHz was bothering me a lot.

There isn't much to mess around with in the BIOS, so I don't think it's in there.

Has anyone experienced this?

Hey guys. This guide is great. I got almost everything working. For some reason I can't get either the sound or Airport to work. If you guys could help me out with this, it'd be much appreciated.

USE MB5,1 SMBIOS.PLIST

 

 

the voodoohda 2.61 from slice worked for me fine since hdmi takes over on 2.72

Weird stuff. I updated to 10.6.8 and I have no USB support, no Airport and sound. Also the system is laggin' like crazy. I am usin' the DSDT provided on the first page (the lastest one)

 

*Edit*

I installed back to vanilla 10.6.0 and I added a bunch of drivers from when I was using the Snow Leopard Distro UniFlash and my sound started working again. But still no Airport. Any help?

Read post 744.

 

I added the file posted in 744 to the directory. I am still on 10.6.0 and still no Airport support. Is there any specific kext I am supposed to have that I may not have?

 

*Edit*

I got it. Thanks for your help. I had a conflicting kext (LegacyAppleYukon2) now my Airport is functioning but my sound is no longer working.

 

*ReEdit*

Had another conflicting driver AppleHDA vs VoodooHDA. Thanks again for your help. I am now going to update to 10.6.7 and see if its all good. Then perhaps jump into 10.6.8. I just wanted to know if anyone got Lion to work successfully on their system.

 

*Update*

10.6.7 works great. I just wanted to know how to scroll on the mousepad, 'cause its not working. Thanks again guys.

The change I made was either changing CID to UID, or adding UID don't remember:

 

    }

   Scope (_SB)
   {
       Device (PCI0)
       {
           Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
           Name (_UID, Zero)
           Name (_PRW, Package (0x02)
           {
               0x0B, 
               0x05
           })

 

 

Hers is my DSDT:

 

DSDT_MalD0n_PAtched.dsl.zip

 

@LatinMcG,

 

Do you think I need to make those other modifications to run Lion GM? I have not installed Lion yet just 10.6.8

 

I never had the sleep/wake issues reported here. I have not check the speedstep but as far as I know it should not have changed from 10.6.7?

 

I also don't use the PTS but rather the GTS for sleep which was mentioned like half way through this thread.

 

 

    Method (_PTS, 1, NotSerialized)
   {
       Store (SMI (0x46, Zero), MIS1)
       SMI (0x8A, Arg0)
   }

   Method (_GTS, 1, NotSerialized)
   {
       If (LEqual (Arg0, 0x05))
       {
           Store (Zero, SLPE)
           Sleep (0x10)
       }
   }

 

 

Forgot to mention that I do have a 2.6GHz Processor and not sure of this can make some difference or not? I also am using a different Wireless BSM43xx bought from Ebay could be why my wireless works with vanilla kexts?

 

SMBIOS.plist is using the MacBookPro6,1 not 5,1

yes seems the _ADR changed to UID is a must for 10.6.8 and lion . never use MacBookPro3,1 or 4,1

on D620 adding it not replacing it i believe last i checked.

 

GTS PTS doesnt work on most models. Xcept M1530 . the easiest link i noticed to failed GTS is on SMI in begining.. shows While MECI Zero.

on M1530 shows While (Zero){}. so it definitely does something different with registers on the chip.

 

i havent tried MacBookPro6,1 yet.. but pro5,1 give me no pstates and lag. plain non pro works.

Hi,

I am having a slight porblem with my DSDT, i am using one of the prepatched DSDT from the Front page and have been modifying it.

I have an M1330 Dell with bios A14. Everything works on 10.6.7 that includes Sleep, Audio etc. I have upgraded to Lion, and have been having problems with sleep.

 

Everyhing works on Lion except sleep, What happens is it will go to sleep but when you power it on after about 3 seconds it just cuts off. Then it resets my bios. I have tried the RTC kext and it doesnt reset the bios however it till powers of the computer off.

The Computer does exactly the same sleep problem with 10.6.8.

i installed all the kexts from the post a few days ago for the M1530.

When i was on 10.6.7 when you tried switched the computer back on it will load from Hibernation (Just like a real mac).

 

This is driving me Nuts as its the ONLY part that isn't making this a perfect install.

 

If anyone has any help please let me know!

 

Regards

Jamie Cruickshank

try the RTC length 0x06 or 0x04

EDIT 0x02 for rtc.

make sure you set "Windows 2001" or 2006 as "Darwin" .

change sleep mode. pmset hibernatemode

 

uncheck secure virtual memory in security section.

Hey all, Today I tried the updated DSDT Non Specific CPU m1330 and for some reason it broke my sleep functions. now when i close the lid it will sleep, but opening the lid shuts down the system and resets certain aspects of the bios!! mainly the section of the bios that tells the computer what to use the wifi switch for. I thought this a little weird, so ive reverted back to my old DSDT and everything is fine again!! weird huh?

 

Also do we have any progress on C state support for our rigs? I know there still isnt an official solution, its just annoying when i know I have another 1.30 battery time I cant get!!!!

 

cheers all

 

 

Ive had the same issue when upgrading to latest DSDT, Ive just downgraded to a previous version, Im not that bothered about updating to 10.6.8 or Lion as of yet, My system runs perfectly stable with 10.6.7

 

Speedstep works, sleep works, No C-State or Shutdown of course!! has there been any progress at all on these things?

 

Thanks Again!

James

Can someone inspect the DSDT I made according to the first post and tell me if the differences between mine and immo's need to be changed. I can boot Lion with either file but I don't know what the diffs mean. I'm using DiffMerge to inspect the .dsl versions.

 

I used Ubuntu 9.04 and 11.04 to pull the tables which are attached along with my patched DSDT. Immo pulled his with 9.04. Most of our patches are identical but in different places in the tree, there are a few that are different though and that concerns me because I have made at least 5 dsdt's from the first post and they all match up so I'm doing something consistently, right or wrong :dev:

 

Also is it even possible to have sleep work when booted from a usb drive?

I have an M1330 Dell with bios A14.

 

Is there a reason you aren't using the A15 Bios? My brother has the A14 still and he's running into problems but hasn't had the time to resolve them, not sure if it's related.

I haven't even tried to tackle that yet. I can't even max out my p-states according to Coolbook. Windows puts me close to 2.6Ghz when it's rated at 2.4, but Coolbook only shows 2208Mhz MAX. 2392Mhz showed up a few days after the install but I can't even hit that under full load.

Thats strange, with my non specific DSDT My speeds max out correctly.

Still chasing those elusive god damnded C states!!

and using DSDT for M1330 with any CPU and NVidia graphics with USB sleep fix and all other previous fixes. (2011/05/30)

 

I tried The C state enabler function but I still get the LPC error at boot, P state enabler i dont need as osx recognizes mine, I boot in 32 bit to address sleep issues, when i put the system to sleep in 64bit mode it would only come back on about 5% of the time.

How do you know osx is recognizing them? I'm using coolbook and it shows 6 speeds but I can't get to the max speed. I'm not using the chameleon flags either.

i use voodoomonitor, it steps up and down, and still hits 2396mhz which from what im aware is the actual frequency rating of our processors.

@LatinMcG,

 

I know you mentioned the SMBus DSDT edit is suppose to fix the error do you mean the error generated when you run LSPCI?

 

pcilib: 0000:01:00.0 64-bit device address ignored

 

Do you have a fix for verbose?

 

ACPI: System State [s0 S3 S4 S5] (S3)

PFM64 0xf10000000, 0xf0000000

[ PCI configuration begin ]

 

Mine stops there on verbose not sure if you have a fix for this in the DSDT?
