LiluFriend - Fixing Lilu does not function correctly under system locations

23 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is going to be a general discussion thread of LiluFriend on InsanelyMac Forum.

LiluFriend is an open-source kernel extension that fixes Lilu does not function correctly under system locations like /System/Library/Extensions or /Library/Extensions.

 

Note: LiluFriend needs configuring properly, otherwise it will fail to load. For more details, check here.

 

Everything including binaries, detailed instructions, is available on GitHub:

https://github.com/PMheart/LiluFriend

 

Also, it's better to report issues on GitHub. :)

You like to clog system folders with third-party files?  :)

Hi. For now, yes. I haven't found a better solution yet.

Installing everything to /L/E uses Apple's native way, otherwise no. Clover's kext injection can be just for necessary and convenience. (installer/recovery)

Also, it's simply wrong to leave lots of kexts outside kernel cache (Using the current way to inject kexts). A kernel cache should be the right eventual place where all kexts should go into.

 

If you really want to place your 3rd-party kexts outside /L/E or /S/L/E, then you should inject code to kernel cache, instead of something Clover now does... It's somewhat complex and I don't tend to do so, and I just put everything inside /L/E, it works like a charm.

Hello PM heart, this only works for Lilu. And I can also add the three Lilux kext that I use in E / C / (ApleAlc, Lilu and NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext) in the lilufriend InfoPlist.

Thks.

Hi.

Yes, actually you may even need to add all Lilu related kexts' bundle id.

By the way, what does E / C mean? I assume that it refers to Clover's kext folder, if so, then LiluFriend is simply not required.

Yeah, I mean Efi / Clover / kext. What I want to do is put all kexts in S / L / E and try not to use the Clover folder. That's why the question.
Thank you for your response, your help is appreciated.

Nah, I saw what you wanted. Sorry for the misunderstanding before.

Well, I think the README of LiluFriend has already contained all you need, so please read it carefully, and, if you still have some unsolved questions, feel free to ask for any help. :)

I have put all the kexts in S / L / E and all have been loaded except LiluFriend. This is normal or should be loaded.

What does the following command say?

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions && sudo kextcache -u /
For some reason, it says LiluFriend depends on CoreDisplayFixup. If you install CoreDisplayFixup then it will load.

Hi, you must remove all kexts that you don't need for LiluFriend to work.

For some reason, it says LiluFriend depends on CoreDisplayFixup. If you install CoreDisplayFixup then it will load.

No, it's just an example. LiluFriend does not even depend on Lilu. Only the "com.apple.security" signature prefix tricks kernel to load it at an early stage, and then it indicates its plugins (Lilu and plugins) to be loaded at the same time. ;)

I'm sorry, I didn't read the readme carefully enough. In other words, the LiluFriend's info.plist should be modified to include in OSBundleLibraries the OSBundleIdentifier and OSBundleCompatibleVersion of all the kexts that you want to load early with LiluFriend.

 

Here's a script to find all the installed Lilu plugins:

echo "# Add the following to OSBundleLibraries of $( find /System/Library/Extensions /Library/Extensions \( -type f -name Info.plist -path '*/LiluFriend.kext/*' \) )"
IFS=$'\n'
for thefile in $( find /System/Library/Extensions /Library/Extensions \( -type f -name Info.plist -not -path '*/Lilu.kext/*' -not -path '*/LiluFriend.kext/*' -print0 \) | xargs -0 grep -l '<key>as.vit9696.Lilu</key>' ); do
	plutil -convert json -r "${thefile}" -o /tmp/converted.plist
	sed -n -E '/^  "CFBundleIdentifier" : "(.*)",?/s//		<key>\1<\/key>/p' /tmp/converted.plist
	version="$(sed -n -E '/^  \"OSBundleCompatibleVersion\" : "(.*)",?/s//\1/p' /tmp/converted.plist)"
	if [[ -z "${version}" ]]; then
		version=$(sed -n -E '/^  "CFBundleVersion" : "(.*)",?/s//\1/p' /tmp/converted.plist)
	fi
	echo "		<string>${version}</string>"
done
The output looks like this:

# Add the following to OSBundleLibraries of /System/Library/Extensions/LiluFriend.kext/Contents/Info.plist
		<key>as.vit9696.AppleALC</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
		<key>org.vanilla.driver.CoreDisplayFixup</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
		<key>as.lvs1974.HibernationFixup</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
		<key>as.lvs1974.IntelGraphicsFixup</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
		<key>as.lvs1974.NvidiaGraphicsFixup</key>
		<string>1.0</string>
But maybe not all of them require to be loaded early? Does it matter for any of those or is only Lilu required to be loaded early? I wonder because you included the org.vanilla.driver.CoreDisplayFixup example in LiluFriend already.

According to @vit9696, all plugins need loading early.

I am using my kexts on L/E on readme section you are saying add LiluFriend to L/E and S/L/E? Should I add LiLuFriend to S/L/E even I am not using my kexts there?

Hi,

No. Either of them is enough. (In my opinion you may create LiluFriend.kext/Contents/PlugIns folder and put Lilu + plugins there)

Hi, finally I created my LiluFriend.kext. Could you please check my .kext did I right? Just like you said I create a Plugins folder and put all kexts and the Lilu there. But I am not sure did I set the setting right?

Good Evening @PMheart :)

 

Unfortunately I can't find any information about an issue I have so I though I should ask you here.

I wanna add a driver to LiluFriend but I don't understand how it should look like in the end.

 

Could you maybe help me in creating it ?

 

I attached the info.plist of the driver which I wanna insert to LiluFriend.

 

How the final LiluFriend kext would look like with this data ?

Hi,

 

Does it have to be installed in /L/E or /S/L/E instead of Clover/kexts/ ? If not, then I'd highly recommend you installing it to Clover and use kext injection for higher priority.

 

Anyway, if you do need it, here you go:

	<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>
	<dict>
		<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>
		<string>12.0.0</string>
		<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>
		<string>12.0.0</string>
		<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>
		<string>12.0.0</string>
		<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>
		<string>12.0.0</string>
		<key>com.apple.kpi.unsupported</key>
		<string>12.0.0</string>
		<key>net.egosys.driver.VRS8Audio</key>
		<string>1.03</string>
	</dict>

Thanks! Will test it asap! :)

The kext has to be in L/E but I will also try via Kext Injection.

 

Unfortunatly doesn't fix my issue... hmm...

 

This is my problem:

@PMheart do you still recommend using your LiluFriend Kext with the latest versions of Lilu and its plugins with the latest Clover as of today?

Depends on how you install them, if you are still putting them into /L/E, why not...

OpenCore has a much decenter way for kext injection, by the way.

Yes I had read about that project.  I think it's too new for me to switch over right now, but I think I will once it garners more support.

 

I put all of my kexts in /L/E (including Lilu) so I suppose I'll add this to ensure Lilu and the plugins are loaded appropriately.  Sometimes my AppleALC kext is loaded incorrectly, causing my audio to randomly not work on boot.  Usually a sleep cycle fixes it.  I think installing to Clover/Kexts (or installing LiluFriend) will fix that.

      Framebuffer patching in Mojave
      Binary patching framebuffers using KextsToPatch in Clover is no longer a viable method in Mojave for Skylake and above. Now you need to use Lilu + WhateverGreen.
       
      Not just for Mojave
      This method of framebuffer patching is not only required for Mojave we recommend it for all previous and future releases of macOS.
       
      Coffee Lake Users
      Please note that the new WhateverGreen will not work with fake Kaby Lake platform-id's. You will need to have either macOS 10.14 Beta 4 (18A336e) or macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112). The latter is a special build only available to MacBookPro15,1 or MacBookPro15,2 board id's. You can create a macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G2112) installer by running installinstallmacos.py. (Update: vit9696 added back ability to fake Kaby Lake platform-id's)
       
      Lilu + WhateverGreen
      WhateverGreen is going to replace all the other video patching plugins for Lilu (it currently has merged WhateverGreen, IntelGraphicsFixup, NvidiaGraphicsFixup, Shiki and CoreDisplayFixup). Others will likely follow (such as AppleALC, HibernationFixup and IntelGraphicsDVMTFixup). This is aiming to be the all-in-one solution for video.
       
      Preliminary
      1. Remove:
      - FakePCIID_Intel_HD_Graphics
      - IntelGraphicsFixup
      - NvidiaGraphicsFixup
      - CoreDisplayFixup
      - Shiki
      2. Turn off all graphics injections in Clover:
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/ATI=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/Intel=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/Inject/NVidia=NO
      - config.plist/Graphics/ig-platform-id=
      - config.plist/Devices/FakeID/IntelGFX=

      3. Disable DSDT Clover fixes:
      - AddHDMI
      - FixDisplay
      - FixIntelGfx
      - AddIMEI
      4. Disable UseIntelHDMI
      5. Remove boot argument: -disablegfxfirmware
      6. Remove any IGPU and HDMI entries from:
      - config.plist/Devices/Arbitrary
      - config.plist/Devices/Properties
      - config.plist/Devices/AddProperties
      7. Remove any IGPU and HDMI related SSDT and DSDT from:
      - CLOVER/ACPI/patched
      8. Renaming GFX0 -> IGPU
      - WhateverGreen will do this automatically (see caveat below)
      - Be aware that WhateverGreen does not rename all instances of GFX0 -> IGPU but should be okay in most cases
      - You may need to include Clover GFX0 -> IGPU rename for other kexts or ACPI patching that require it
       
      Compile Lilu + WhateverGreen
      Download WhateverGreen. Make sure you place the debug version of Lilu into the root of WhateverGreen before you compile. Install Lilu and WhateverGreen kext's into the usual place. Compile WhateverGreen as debug if you want to view debug output.
       
      Having trouble compiling?
      If you're having trouble compiling you can download the official release binaries or download my (unsupported) build_lilu.sh shell script and run it in a folder to download and build Lilu + WhateverGreen using Xcode automatically. I recommend you try the debug versions first (place them into Clover's EFI/Clover/kexts/Other folder).
       
      Get the device path of your IGPU:
      Download and use the gfxutil tool like so:
      $ ./gfxutil IGPU = PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0) ig-platform-id
      For the AAPL,ig-platform-id (AAPL,snb-platform-id for Sandy Bridge) entry Clover requires this value to be in Data format so you need to reverse the bytes. So if you want your platform-id to be 0x3EA50009 first reverse the bytes (0900A53E) then use Xcode's plist editor to add the values to Clover's config.plist.

       
      What ig-platform-id should I use for my system?
      You should choose one that is the closest match to your system. I recommend you do some research on this before choosing one. See post #2 for available options. More info can be found here.
       
      You can determine the generation of your CPU by the first digit after the hyphen.
      Examples:
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2760QM (Gen 2)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-5257U CPU @ 2.70GHz (Gen 5)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) m3-6Y30 (Gen 6)
      - Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8350U (Gen 8)
       
      Spoofing Intel CPU Gen
      If you need to spoof a different Intel CPU generation you can use the lilucpu=N boot flag. The N refers to the following Intel generations:
      4    SandyBridge 5    IvyBridge 6    Haswell 7    Broadwell 8    Skylake 9    KabyLake 10   CoffeeLake To spoof a CPU you will need to set a valid device-id in your GPU entry in Devices/Properties for the appropriate Intel generation.
       
      Eg. Spoofing Skylake (lilucpu=8 boot flag with device-id=0x16190000), Kaby Lake (lilucpu=9 boot flag with device-id=0x12590000).

      Framebuffer Patching
      WhateverGreen does most of the work automatically for you and in most cases you do not need any extra Framebuffer Patching. At the minimum though you should choose an ig-platform-id suitable for your system and place it in config.plist/Devices/Properties like this:

      Here are some reasons why you might need extra Framebuffer Patching:
      - Setting DVMT for those who can't set it above 32 MB in BIOS (framebuffer-stolenmem / framebuffer-fbmem)
      - Setting higher VRAM for 4K users who experience graphical glitches (framebuffer-unifiedmem)
      - Disabling eGPU (disable-external-gpu)
      - Enable pixel clock patch for 4K support (enable-hdmi20)
      - Disabling connectors to enable sleep (framebuffer-pipecount / framebuffer-portcount / framebuffer-conX-type=-1)
      - Removing CNConnectorAlwaysConnected flag for eDP laptop screens on < 10.13.6 (framebuffer-con0-flags=0x00000090)
      - Changing connector types to match your systems ports (framebuffer-conX-type)
       
      Framebuffer Patching Types
      We have three different types of patches:
       
      1. Arbitrary (Recommended)
      framebuffer-patch-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) (all below are optional) framebuffer-mobile framebuffer-pipecount framebuffer-portcount framebuffer-memorycount framebuffer-stolenmem framebuffer-fbmem framebuffer-unifiedmem framebuffer-cursormem (Haswell only) framebuffer-camellia framebuffer-flags framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-index framebuffer-conX-busid framebuffer-conX-pipe framebuffer-conX-type framebuffer-conX-flags 2. All Data
      framebuffer-conX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-conX-alldata 3. Find / Replace
      framebuffer-patchX-enable (required to enable below) framebuffer-patchX-framebufferid (optional; defaults to current platform-id) framebuffer-patchX-find framebuffer-patchX-replace framebuffer-patchX-count (optional; defaults to 1) You should place your patches in config.plist/Devices/Properties in Clover config.plist.
       
      Here are some example patches:
      - 32MB BIOS, 19MB stolen (framebuffer) 9MB fbmem (cursor) 2048MB unifiedmem (vram)

       
      - Pipe / Port Count 3 to 2
      - Connector 1 DP to HDMI
      - Connector 2 Disable

       
      Here is an example of the All Data method:

       
      Here is an example of the Find / Replace method:

       
      Framebuffer Dumps
      There are two ways to dump your framebuffer data (both require WhateverGreen + Lilu debug versions):
       
      1. Using -igfxdump boot flag to dump IGPU framebuffer kext to /AppleIntelFramebuffer_X_Y (root of your boot drive)
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using 010 Editor along with the IntelFramebuffer.bt template
      - Using Hackintool File->Open menu
       
      2. Using -igfxfbdump boot flag to dump native and patched framebuffer table to ioreg at IOService:/IOResources/WhateverGreen
       
      There are several ways of reading this dump:
      - Using dump_platformlist.sh shell script
      - Using Hackintool File->Import->IOReg Dump menu
       
      3. Using Hackintool Framebuffer->macOS 10.14 menu
       
      Adjusting the brightness on a laptop
      1. Method 1
      Enable Clover DSDT fix AddPNLF. Enable SetIntelBacklight and SetIntelMaxBacklight. A specific value is not necessary - it will be automatically injected according to the processor installed.
      2. Method 2
      Use this ACPI table: SSDT-PNLF.dsl SSDT-PNLF.aml
      Do not use both methods at the same time!
       
      Digital Audio (HDMI / DVI / DP)
      To enable digital audio it is necessary to set the necessary properties and, usually, patch the connectors.
      To enable audio in general and HDMI in particular use WEG along with AppleALC.kext.
      On 10.10.5 and above, WEG automatically changes the connector-type of DP (00040000) to HDMI (00080000) if no custom patches are used.
      The actual connection may be of any type (HDMI / DVI / DP), but for the digital audio to function the connector-type must explicitly be HDMI.
       
      VGA support
      In most cases with Intel Skylake and newer it works by default.
      For Ivy Bridge and possibly other generations there are the options to patch your connectors with the following:
      06020000 02000000 30000000 // Option 1
      06020000 01000000 30000000 // Option 2
      On OS X 10.8.2 and newer it is impossible to have VGA on Ivy Bridge systems.
      Hot-plugging VGA usually does not work.
      In case this doesn't help - there are no other known solutions at this time.
       
      EDID
      EDID is usually correctly identified, so no actions are required. In rare cases, EDID needs to be injected manually.
      An EDID dump can be obtained, for example, with Linux. The correct EDID must be put into *AAPL00,override-no-connect* property for IGPU, where the second 0 stands for the display number.
      In some cases the EDID dump may be incompatible with macOS and leads to distortions. For some EDID in such cases you can use this script, which corrects a provided EDID and saves it to your desktop.
       
      HDMI in UHD resolution with 60 fps
      Add the enable-hdmi20 property to IGPU, otherwise you will get a black screen. Or instead of this property use the boot-arg -cdfon
       
      Disablng a discrete graphics card
      Add the disable-external-gpu property to IGPU. Or instead of this property, use the boot-arg -wegnoegpu
       
      Fix the invalid maximum link rate issue on some laptops (Dell XPS 15 9570, etc.)
      Add the enable-dpcd-max-link-rate-fix property to IGPU, otherwise a kernel panic would happen due to a division-by-zero. Or instead of this property, use the boot-arg -igfxmlr.
      You could also manually specify a maximum link rate value via the dpcd-max-link-rate for the builtin display.
      Typically use 0x14 for 4K display and 0x0A for 1080p display. All possible values are 0x06 (RBR), 0x0A (HBR), 0x14 (HBR2) and 0x1E (HBR3). If an invalid value is specified, the default value 0x14 will be used instead. If this property is not specified, same as above.  
      Fix the infinite loop on establishing Intel HDMI connections with a higher pixel clock rate on Skylake, Kaby Lake and Coffee Lake platforms
      Add the enable-hdmi-dividers-fix property to IGPU or use the -igfxhdmidivs boot argument instead to fix the infinite loop when the graphics driver tries to establish a HDMI connection with a higher pixel clock rate, for example connecting to a 2K/4K display with HDMI 1.4, otherwise the system just hangs (and your builtin laptop display remains black) when you plug in the HDMI cable.  
      1. General Notes
      For those who want to have "limited" 2K/4K experience (i.e. 2K@59Hz or 4K@30Hz) with their HDMI 1.4 port, you might find this fix helpful. For those who have a laptop or PC with HDMI 2.0 routed to IGPU and have HDMI output issues, please note that this fix is now succeeded by the LSPCON driver solution, and it is still recommended to enable the LSPCON driver support to have full HDMI 2.0 experience.  
      (You might still need this fix temporarily to figure out the connector index of your HDMI port. See the LSPCON section below.)
      LSPCON driver support to enable DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 output on IGPU
      1. Brief Introduction
      Recent laptops (Kaby Lake/Coffee Lake-based) are typically equipped with a HDMI 2.0 port. This port could be either routed to IGPU or DGPU, and you can have a confirmation on Windows 10. Intel (U)HD Graphics, however, does not provide native HDMI 2.0 output, so in order to solve this issue OEMs add an additional hardware named LSPCON on the motherboard to convert DisplayPort into HDMI 2.0.
      LSPCON works in either Level Shifter (LS) or Protocol Converter (PCON) mode. When the adapter works in LS mode, it is capable of producing HDMI 1.4 signals from DisplayPort, while in PCON mode, it could provide HDMI 2.0 output. Some onboard LSPCON adapters (e.g. the one on Dell XPS 15 9570) have been configured in the firmware to work in LS mode by default, resulting a black screen on handling HDMI 2.0 connections.
      Starting from version 1.3.0, WhateverGreen now provides driver support for the onboard LSPCON by automatically configuring the adapter to run in PCON mode on new HDMI connections, and hence solves the black screen issue on some platforms.
       
      2. Before you start
      LSPCON driver is only applicable for laptops and PCs with HDMI 2.0 routed to IGPU. LSPCON driver is necessary for all newer platforms unless the new IGPU starts to provide native HDMI 2.0 output. Supported Intel Platform: Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake and later.
      Skylake Case: Intel NUC Skull Canyon; Iris Pro 580 + HDMI 2.0 with Parade PS175 LSPCON.
      Coffee Lake Case: Some laptops, e.g. Dell XPS 15 9570, are equipped with HDMI 2.0 and Parade PS175 LSPCON. If you have confirmed that your HDMI 2.0 is routed to IGPU and is working properly right now, you don't need to enable this driver, because your onboard LSPCON might already be configured in the firmware to work in PCON mode.
      3. Instructions
      Dump your kernel log and you should also be able to see something simillar to lines below.

      Debug Output
      To get debug output from Lilu use the -liludbgall liludump=60 boot flags. You will need to compile Lilu and WhateverGreen as debug for both of these flags to work. Log files should be located at /var/log/Lilu_*.
       
      To view debug paste the following into Terminal (weglog.txt will output to your home directory):
      log show --predicate 'process == "kernel" AND (eventMessage CONTAINS "WhateverGreen" OR eventMessage CONTAINS "Lilu")' --style syslog --source --last boot >weglog.txt Getting Help

      To help the users of this forum diagnose issues with your configuration please generate a Lilu debug log and then run gen_debug.sh to generate a folder of debug files you can attach to a forum post requesting help.

      hey everybody
       
      as title said lilu causing very long boot 5-6 mins on SSD
      my EFI is up to date and set properly, only usb3 not working looking for kext
       
      OS 10.14.5
      my mobo p61a-d3 with i5 2400
      when -liluoff is used bood time is under 30 seconds
       
      i have tried lilu 1.2.6 to 1.3.3 same results
       
      how can i get lilu bootlog?
      i dont know how to solve this problem
       
      edit - usb3 fixed and working
    • By olvko
      As I found no binary kext for DiskArbitrationFixup Lilu plugin from https://github.com/Goldfish64/DiskArbitrationFixup, I compiled current version. Attached below, as it may be useful for other people.
       
      This Lilu plug-in disables error "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" after macOS boot in case you have eg. Linux partitions in the same computer.
       
      Compiled under macOS 10.14.3 without debugging symbols against Lilu 1.3.4 headers. Requires Lilu.kext (https://github.com/acidanthera/Lilu) alongside to work.
       
      I do not give any warranty for its work and I am not an author of original code.

      Hi guys,
       
      Though native graphics acceleration is supported on i3 from Mojave, I'm not able to manage to get it.
       
      This is my system configuration :
      Motherboard:  Asus Prime H370-Plus
      CPU: i3-8100 (UHD 630)
      OS: Mojave 10.14.2
       
      I'm trying every possible way to get full graphics acceleration. But whatever I try it shows only 4MB video memory or leads to Kernal Panic. Here are some ways I have tried so far:
       
      Prerequisites: 
      Installed latest Lilu+WEG on L/E. set DMVT prealloc to 64MB on bios.  
      Option 1: IntelGFX-> 0x3E928086, ig-platform-id-> 0x3E9B0007, Inject Intel = true. Output:  Kernal Panic
      Option 2: Blank IntelGFX, blank ig-platform-id, Inject Intel = false Output:  Kernal Panic
      Option 3:  IntelGFX-> 0x3E928086, ig-platform-id-> 0x5912000, Inject Intel = true.  Output: Booted Successfully but no graphics acceleration.
                     I knew that ig-platform-id-> 0x5912000 doesn't work in mojave and its works only for high sierra but I set this because with this ig-platform-id I can boot. Another way I can boot it by
                     setting invalid Fake IntelGFX value like 0x12345678.
      Option 4:  Downloaded Intel FBPatcher & followed this guide. But as I opened the app, its shows like this:
       
                     
                    
                     It clearly indicates it neither can detect Intel CPU generation nor GPU memory (currently shows 0 MB). I changed to different PlatformId from the drop down but no improvement. Anyway I
                     applied a patch with SMBIOS ->Macmini8,1 by someione's recommendation . I attached a config file (config_fbpather.plist) for this. Output:  Kernal Panic
       
      I have tried the upper mentioned methods with SMBIOS like  iMac14,2 / iMac18[1,2,3]  and Macmini8,1. I'm using HDMI port for display output. Now I don't know whats wrong with theses methods but maybe someone can help me to figure out this problem. I have also attached those config.plist files.
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Good evening, friends of InsanelyMac.
      I have an Acer Aspire E5-571 notebook with Intel processor and Intel Graphics 5500 hd graphics card. When I was using the Sierra, the video card was recognized without problems. Now that I'm using Mojave I can not get the acceleration to work.
      I've been researching something about having to use Lilu.kext and whatevergreen.kext but I do not have enough knowledge to solve this problem.
      I need the help of someone who can explain to me how to solve this acceleration problem. I'm sure it will be of great value to other users like me.
      Thank you very much.
