  1. [ubuntu] Re: Screen not found in EFI boot, macbook pro 8,2, Ubuntu 12.10

    A start for getting real switching to work would be to boot just with
    i915.lvds_channel_mode=2 i915.lvds_use_ssc=0, no modeset changes or outbs. These two i915 are necessary to get the display...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: Screen not found in EFI boot, macbook pro 8,2, Ubuntu 12.10

    If you just want to boot with the intel card active and don't really care about switcheroo you could try adding the outb stuff from http://tech.ivkin.net/wiki/Ubuntu_on_MacBook_Pro_Notes to your grub...
  3. [ubuntu] Re: Screen not found in EFI boot, macbook pro 8,2, Ubuntu 12.10

    It's strange that X tries to start using the intel card without you explicitly switching it. Can you post a full dmesg and a cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch?

    Also, try shutting down X...

    [ubuntu] Re: SATA controller not recognized as AHCI

    Unfortunately that breaks suspend/resume. Have a look at https://bugs.launchpad.net/mactel-support/+bug/817017 for a kernel patch that does what the setpci does but works with suspend.
  5. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    It's 0x770 not 0x700, 0x700 seems to be pretty static for me, I haven't observed a single change of it's value yet.

    What also could be useful is the log for a suspend/resume-cycle as the driver...
  6. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    I'm using a mbp 6,2, 2.6.36-rc3 with some patches and ubuntu maverick. It's possible that something else is needed for controlling the backlight, there are quite a few ports that seem to be connected...
  7. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    Hey, against my expectations we have (kind of flaky) wifi here at the hotel so i can check these forums from time to time.
    It's great to see some partial success on other mbps and even some people...
  8. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    Well that looks promising, almost no difference to the newer mbps. And I guess the only things that need to get changed really are just the device id and the gmux version check to include 1.8.

    But...
  9. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    Did you reboot afterwards? Can you paste your full Boot.plist?



    Not at the moment, but after a few modifications it could work. At least if apple didn't change how the gmux works. But at least...
  10. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    Putting
    agclog=10000 agcdebug=4294967295 in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist enables logging for graphics switching and backlight control. It's quite verbose, output...

    [other] Re: grub2 EFI boot loader internal/external booting

    Hey, I just wanted to tell everyone here that using the patch from this thread (http://140.211.166.79/mailarchive/linux-kernel/2010/8/16/4607435/thread) I am able to boot without the noefi option on...
  12. [all variants] Re: Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    It seems packaging a kernel module is a lot harder than writing one so i'm giving up trying to build a neat .deb. I attached the source to the first post, maybe someone is better at packaging than...
  13. [all variants] Testers wanted: Improved Backlight for 2010 MBPs

    Hello everyone,

    while investigating gpu switching on a mbp 6,2 I discovered how apple does the backlight setting on the recent mbps.

    I added the new method to mbp_nvidia_bl, but as I have only...

  15. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to boot Lucid from GPT w/rEFIt (with / at 6th partition) on MBP 6,2

    1+2: Yes this works but needs some tinkering to get it running. See http://grub.enbug.org/TestingOnMacbook

    You need to start grub with efi not via the bios emulation.

    Same on my mbp 6,2. I'll post the output from tinkering with the efi shell later, maybe that helps.

    Edit: See the attachment for efi information, especially dff7 and dfh9.
  18. [ubuntu] Re: MBP Core i7 - Anyone enabled intel gfx by pure EFI boot(grub2)?

    I tried it and didn't get it to work yet. Efi boot worked after some fiddling around but it still uses the nvidia card by default and switcheroo doesn't seem to detect anything.

    Re: S.T.A.L.K.E.R - How's it run in Wine?

    Hi,
    it works great, when you have a nvidia-card and at least wine 0.9.35. But it needs a no-cd crack.

    The singleplayer is 100% playable, the only drawback is that you cant use the dynamic...
