"Rename GFX0 to IGPU" Patch on ASUS X555LB-NS51

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Whenever I apply this patch to the relevant ACPI tables (DSDT, SSDT-8, SSDT-11, SSDT-13), I get the following kernel panic: http://imgur.com/wcIlBOv.jpg

 

I don't see how a graphics patch could affect the kext in charge for WiFI.  This only occurs when I apply the patch to the ACPI tables mentioned.  When I add them to EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched without the patch, the laptop boots fine.

 

I believe this is the final step to get waking from sleep working.  Thanks to anyone who can help!

 

I've attached my ACPI tables below.

Hi, thanks for your reply!
 
So, just those two?  I thought when using this patch, you had to apply it to all ACPI tables that mention GFX0?
 

It is common to rename objects to better match what OS X expects (example "Rename GFX0 to IGPU" for proper IGPU power management). In such cases, all DSDT/SSDTs with references to that name must also be renamed.

SSDT-8 and SSDT-13 don't necessarily define/use them in the main body, but they do have external references to it...

hmm.  I might try dropping all the tables this time around.  So far, I've only been dropping the ones I patch, because that's the only way it would boot:

It's actually wake from sleep that's the issue; it sleeps fine.

 

The backlight turns on but I don't see the OS.  Any ideas?

 

Thanks again!

try to see any related msg with wake

Hi,

 

So I haven't gotten to testing the SSDT + DSDT you posted farther up, but I did just now try this DSDT.

 

Even without the SSDTs, it gives the same kernel panic.  Something in the DSDT patching process must be throwing OS X off.  I'll try dropping all OEM SSDTs and edit this post with the result.

 

 

Edit: There's good news, and bad news.  The good news is, the patch was successful!  I just had to drop all OEM DSDTs, and then include my SATA SSDTs (SSDT-0 and SSDT-1) in EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched.

 

The bad news is that it still won't wake from sleep.  I tried both _WAK patches from here, and both don't help.  I also tested your DSDT, and it didn't work. :-/

 

Since the main question was resolved, I marked the thread as such.  I'm gonna continue working on wake-from-sleep; if you or anyone else have any suggestions, please let me know!
