Built and tested 5.1.5.arch1-1. Released. However, there are differences between this build's config and official kernel build's. I'll review and address those differences in next builds.

I'm trying to get my suspend to work and noticed this package. But I get

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
linux-4.9.tar ... FAILED (unknown public key 79BE3E4300411886)
patch-4.9.14 ... FAILED (unknown public key 38DBBDC86092693E)
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

when installing .. what do I need ?

Package does not build. Something with "signature failure". Seems hashes of kernel sources has changed. Does it work for you?

Hi, thanks a lot for this patched kernel ! That really works better with it :-).

I've another request, it looks like acpi -b can't get battery information with this patched kernel compared to the current one on Arch. Does anyone get an idea on how to get it? May be there's another way to get it?

Okay posting solution here for the unwary traveler that may come across this thread in search of answers:

Chances are that after installing the linux-macbook kernel from the AUR you may have forgotten to rebuild your grub.efi file that is placed on the hard drive you are booting from. More instructions about this can be found here:

More specifically, the section that says Bootloader configuration and setup

Chances are that this is actually posted somewhere in some document that I am just unable to find. Good luck

So if I build using makepkg, will the poweroff patches automatically be applied?

GuineaPiet commented on 2017-02-18 08:25

Sorry if I am being an idiot, but for the life of me I cannot find the instructions to get the power off on the Retina Macbook Pro Mid 2015 to work correctly. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Hey everyone -- first off thanks for all the feedback and getting involved, very appreciated!

So I was able to finish updating this port to 4.9 with the necessary patches required. I was able to adjust the brightness, suspend/resume and power-off the machine without any issues. Hopefully these updates help others that had issues with the 4.8 branch!

Thanks again, please report back on any successes or failures.

NOTE: if you were running this kernel since 4.8, you no longer need disable_mode=1 in your boot options.

Just a quick update everyone -- I got 4.9.9 to compile, but on reboot it said it couldn't find initrd or something to that effect (the text on the screen was too small for me to read). Anyway, I probably just missed something in the PKGBUILD but I should have this done and committed in a day or so.

That is, unless they push out 4.9.10 -- anyone know why the kernel releases have been super aggressive recently (in the past year or so)?

m3thodic commented on 2017-02-01 19:04

@crencom I have been actively working on getting this up to date with 4.9 -- I've ported over all the files, hooks and configs from the base kernel since it went from testing to base but I haven't cracked it yet. I'm hoping to get something working in a few days tho, getting super close.
