It appears that you started signing these packages yesterday. Much appreciated!

ephemient commented on 2017-07-03 15:03

There is an updated suspend/poweroff patch proposed to upstream.
https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9821775/

Also, the .config in this package is missing a few changes in the linux package.

Thanks a lot for these excellent packages. Would you mind signing the binary builds please?

m3thodic commented on 2017-06-15 02:06

@Tom_B Thanks for the feedback and tips!

For what it's worth, I struggled with Grub like others. I switched to systemd-boot and it's a lot easier.

Add the relevant macbook.conf

```
title Arch Linux (Macbook kernel)
linux /vmlinuz-linux-macbook
initrd /initramfs-linux-macbook.img
options root=PARTUUID=d2722f04-6165-489e-aba6-edeeb8e38634 rw quiet splash video.use_native_backlight=1 processor.ignore_ppc=1
```

(change your uuid to your / partition) and upgrading the kernel via yaourt just works without any extra hassle.

Thanks for this kernel, i'm very new to arch and such things make me like it even more. I have couple of issues though, here's the output of them.

And wifi stopped working after i updated kernel. Do you guys have any idea what could be a problem?

notjacktall commented on 2017-05-31 03:45

update: it was because i was booting from a boot.efi file and the boot.efi doesn't regenerate every time you run grub-mkconfig. So to fix it all i had to do was regenerate the boot.efi file.

notjacktall commented on 2017-05-30 13:43

@m3thodic Yeah thats what I was thinking and I do dual boot. Its just arch and mac linux. I am using efi. Just looked into refind that does look like it will solve my problems. I have never used refind though, is there any more additional set up other than installing it using the arch package manager?

m3thodic commented on 2017-05-30 04:40

@notjacktall I'm guessing it has something to do with your partition setup re: EFI. Do you dual-boot at all? I personally install refind on all my EFI-based systems (refind-efi-bin in the AUR). For me it's the quickest and easiest solution that supports every type of EFI setup (or lack there-of) I've come across.

notjacktall commented on 2017-05-29 22:45

I did that and the two are identical. I've pasted the grub.cgf below if you want to take a look at it. But the good news is the kernel dix fix the suspend for me and made the laptop a lot more usable. So, thanks a ton for that :)
