    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    I too got an 8192cu device as a replacement for getting wifi going on my laptop however the driver required porting to 2.6.38 and frequently causes kernel issues. As far as I can tell the porting I...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Apparently I'm the only one who gets a kernel hang when trying to load the ndiswrapper module, amusing because I'm the one that found the driver and got it working first. :(

    As far as sound mine...

    As far as graphics mesa 7.10.1 seems to be very buggy with sandy bridge, even fullscreen flash crashes it for me. I enabled the xorg-edgers ppa to get 7.11 git snapshots and all of my issues went...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Ok, scratch that, it looks like bluetooth works too, it just needs the id (05ac:821a) added to the driver. Here is a quick package that does this. It doesn't seem to want to install the kernel module...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    So with the new packages for the keyboard and mouse I think the only things we're missing now are bluetooth, wifi, and thunderbolt.

    Note: I've left the wifi instructions on the wiki as they seem...

    For that we need a driver for the touchpad, which we currently don't have.

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Unless support for this chip suddenly emerges and the Ubuntu kernel team backports the support the open source driver will not support it. The driver in 2.6.38 does _not_ support this chip. Our best...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    The last commit to ndiswrapper was a couple weeks ago adding 2.5.38 compatibility. The one before that was 5 months ago. I doubt you'll see a fix on the ndiswrapper side for this. We just need a...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Well the older x86 driver still won't support the chip and the newer one fails due to trying to use a bunch of Windows kernel functions that ndiswrapper doesn't support so x86 won't help there.

    Nope, newer versions of the driver don't work with ndiswrapper, older versions don't have support for the chip we have, and even pulling from ndiswrapper SVN ends up with either a kernel hang or at...

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Yeah, bcm5974-dkms doesn't include the ID for the touchpad in the 8,1 and adding it to the driver doesn't make things work so I suspect more work is needed there.

    As far as ndiswrapper goes, I...

    What you're seeing is a crash in your driver which is the reason Firefox and Chrome have disabled WebGL for your driver.

    I've already explained in the launchpad bug report that spawned this thread why this doesn't actually fix the problem and why we can't do it by default anyway.

    I've already told you, this is simply not possible right now. We'd all love to love to have it but our drivers and Xorg lack the capability.

    Re: Should X be replaced?

    X is way behind Windows 7's display server, at least in regards to handling crashes. There is no doubt about that. X can be fixed instead of replaced though and I'm sure that is what will happen.

    X has many benefits but it does also has many problems. The main problem in this case is that a bug in a single application, driver, or the X server itself kills all of your running GUI applications....

    Ok guys, you can stop using my patch. :) Just install the bcmwl-kernel-source package. It uses dkms to automatically build for your kernel on updates.
