Re: Mac Book Pro 6, 2 and Ubuntu 12.04 not working as expected


I copy-and-paste the relevant parts from my previous email which could be summarize to that I'm using the steps found here:

I'll take a look at the suggested patch set while waiting for your reply. Thank you!


Compile and install the patched kernel
git clone git@xxxxxxxxxx:ah-/ubuntu-kernel-mbp.git
cd ubuntu-kernel-mbp
git checkout gmux
fakeroot debian/rules clean
skipabi=true skipmodule=true fakeroot debian/rules binary-indep
skipabi=true skipmodule=true fakeroot debian/rules binary-perarch
skipabi=true skipmodule=true fakeroot debian/rules binary-mbp
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i *deb

Boot into the new kernel
At grub2 menu I select Previous operating systems and then the
3.2.0-18-mbp boot option.

Compile and install the apple_gmux switching driver
git clone https://github.com/ah-/gmux.git
cd gmux
sudo cp apple_gmux.ko


When I boot (Special previous version with special 3.2.0-18-mbp with
special parametres) I just get a blank screen. The screen seems more
grey than blank but whatever I cannot use for normal use. So I have to
use SSH to enter the machine.

Which kernel version are you running, which which patches?

There are no usable VBIOS tables for the MBP 6,2, so you need to use
this patch set:
to switch the ddc lines during detection.
