Oh the Huge Manatee

Building a custom DSDT for C700 (C776CA)

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a C776 which is well supported by OSX, except for a few key details that are driving me crazy. Most important to me is sleep/wake... on wake, my fans stop working entirely, leading to a KP pretty quickly. Second, I'd like to be able to use native kexts for my audio device (right now I have custom kexts). Finally, the ability to use native kexts with my trackpad/keyboard would be nice (is that even possible with PS2 devices?).

 

 

When I try to compile my DSDT, here are the warnings and errors I get:

 

./dsdt_fixed.txt   541:			 Method (FRSP, 0, NotSerialized)

I figure the most important thing to fix is the Error:

./dsdt_fixed.txt  2609:					 CreateDWordField (BUF1, Local2, CAPB)
Error	4111 -		  Creating a named object in a While loop ^

 

Here's the offending code from/around line 2609:

Method (_OSC, 5, NotSerialized)
		{
			Store (Arg3, Local0)
			Multiply (Local0, 0x04, Local1)
			Name (BUF1, Buffer (Local1) {})
			Store (Arg4, BUF1)
			Store (Zero, Local1)
			Store (Zero, Local2)
			While (Local0)
			{
				Multiply (Local1, 0x04, Local2)
				CreateDWordField (BUF1, Local2, CAPB)
				If (Arg2)
				{
					If (LEqual (Local1, Zero))
					{
						And (CAPB, 0xFFFFFFFC)
					}
				}
				Else
				{
				}

				Increment (Local1)
				Decrement (Local0)
			}

			Return (BUF1)
		}

 

 

I understand the error - creating that new DWORD is illegal when you're in a loop. But I have no idea how to fix it! Ideas?

Well I've fixed a lot of it. Took care of the error at least, now I'm trying to fix the warnings. All I have lft is

Seems like every time I get a "Reserved method must return a value" I also get a "Not all control paths return a value". I think these are redundant warnings.... but any help?

Is there any way you could PM your solution to this problem!? its driving me nuts. thanks.
