Actually I'm not going to edit it for you, but if you want to read this and try to do it yourself, I will surely try to help.

I've read and read, but I'm so unsure of with patches I need to use. Any chance of helping me out here?


EDIT: Found the links to the different dsdt patch packs and found one for K53E, wich is the same motherboard as K53SC so I should be able to use this to patch my dsdt. I'll have to try this on my dsdt.aml I dumped via Ubuntu yesterday when I get home.


I have a working system at the moment via installed using easybeast. I was kind of hoping to get speedstepping and sleep to work. I also have trouble shutting down from inside of OSX as it seems to reboot instead of shutting down.

What kexts installed by easybeast should I get rid of to get these things working via dsdt instead?

NullPowerManagement is a given amd I know I have to patch AICPUPM for speedstepper.

Yes, after patching DSDT and AICPUPM you have to get rid of NullCPUPM to have SpeedStep and sleep working. Which other "extra" kexts did you install?


The K53E patch should work for you. You may also need the "DualLink" patch for Intel HD 3000.

Easybeast installed these kexts:

FakeSMC.kext

LegacyAppleRTC.kext

EvOreboot.kext

JMicron36xATA.kext

AHCI_3rdParty_SATA.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext

IOUSBFamily.kext, IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext (USB Rollback)


And I have since installed these:

VoodooBattery.kext (for working battery display)

VoodooHDA.kext (2.7.2, for audio)

AppleHDADisabler.kext (as far as I can see, needed for running VoodooHDA)

AtherosFix.kext (to enable my Atheros wi-fi)

RealtekRTL81xx.kext (for the LAN)

VoodooPS2Controller.kext (to enable the laptops keyboard)

After patching DSDT you can remove:

LegacyAppleRTC.kext

EvOreboot.kext

NullCPUPowerManagement.kext


and possibly:

IOUSBFamily.kext, IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext (USB Rollback)

Seems I have to abandon the dsdt idea until I can find a working next to enable my trackpad and keyboard in 64-bit as it is needed for the patched AICPUPM in Lion since it's 64-bit only.

So far I've been using a VoodooPS2controller.kext that runs only in 32-bit and all the others I've tried have failed to get them working at all.


Would the system run ok with a patched DSDT run if I still used NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (except for sleep and speed stepping of course)?


And is it normal to end up with errors when compiling the DSDT? When I tried to patch my DSDT with the k53e patch I ended up with 7 errors.

Vanilla power management is one of the main advantages of using a patched DSDT. The system will still work with NullCPUPM, but you won't have this benefit.


No, it's not normal to end up with errors. If the "fix errors" button doesn't fix them, copy/paste the messages here.


In my Asus N53JQ I use the SL_PS2_Voodoo.zip from this topic, but I have to remove VoodooPS2Trackpad from VoodooPS2Controller.kext/Contents/PlugIns so it works with the mouse plug-in.

Thanks Cassio! With the kext you linked I could finally boot in 64-bit mode.

And I've compiled a DSDT that seems to run just fine. I must have done something wrong last time I tried to patch DSDT since I got no errors this time, only a few warnings. But that is normal, right?

I didn't use the "Duallink" patch for my HD 3000. What does it do?

Yes, warnings are not problem.


About DualLink, some people reported they got full resolution with stock kexts and without special boot loader, but I never tested it myself.
