  1. [ubuntu] Re: Keyboard Problem - (Caps lock, Numlock) Hardy

    Still in 2012 this _was_ a problem for me (on a MacBook Pro 5,1) up until a few minutes ago :confused:. I had, on a clean Oneiric install, non-functional:

    Not really... 8-[ But even booting with the battery not present gives the same 129 degrees readings.

    Thanks for all the work :-)
  5. [all variants] Re: New applesmc module for all models - Call for testing

    Yes. But, why set to 129 degrees when readings are not available (unplugged battery)? What is the motivation behind this? Can it not be set to N/A or the like? Or something that macfanctld will...
