Hey everyone, sorry about the lack of updates as of recent. The stable release schedule got super aggressive within the past six months, so it's been a challenge to keep on top it; on a related note some of the diffs weren't cleanly applying and the last thing I want to do is push out a package that uses a fudge factor for patching kernel code.

The latest kernel version apparently finally brought the gmux/backlight code into the official tree. I tested it on my MacBook Air and was able to dial down my brightness using the native GNOME hotkeys. All that's left is the suspend/poweroff patches, so I reverted my last attempt at consolidating all the patches since the latest changes I made appeared to cause issues for some people.

Post here if something isn't working, but equally as important please post if everything is working great -- the more feedback you can give the better the chances the rest of these patches can finally be merged into mainline.

Thanks again for your patience!

@m3thodic I am unable to download the linux-macbook-headers package from your repository (it attempts but fails because no data is received in time). The linux-macbook package, however, is fine. Is the repo not supposed to supply the headers package?

Figured it out for those with the same question / problem. I can get the GPU switch to work from Intel back to the AMD GPU by reversing the Command that shuts off the AMD GPU while on Intel video-

from - echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch (on Intel video)

to - echo ON > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch

then run your gpu-switch -d command

reboot.

This has worked fro me so far.

Running this kernel on a MBPr 11,5 - AMD GPU AND INTEL video. I am having issues swithing from the Intel video back to the AMD GPU. I use the gpu-switch -d command just prior to reboot. My refind.conf is set up correct as well. When I reboot, I get a black screen and I have to then login to the terminal to delete the 20-intel.conf file to get it to boot back with the AMD GPU. Any help is appreciated.

thanks

Hi,

Here is the gist: https://gist.github.com/deimosfr/f277253b2310474af20e66ccdac25b73

It's a MacBookPro11,5.

Thanks

@deimosfr what version of Macbook do you have? It would be helpful if you could run dmidecode with sudo or as root and post the output to a gist.

Thanks.

Hi, with 4.15.4-1, when the lid I need to push the power button to wake it up. I didn't have this behavior in previous version, I mean it automatically waked up when I opened the lid. Is there any fix for it ? By the way, I enabled macbook-wakeup.service. Thanks

Here's a patch that syncs with upstream and updates to 4.14.12.

My bad... for anyone else reading this who doesn't know, the PKGBUILD file shows which of the patches were used, and in what order.
