Thank you for maintaining this package, @annguyenfoss. I'll try to keep this package up-to-date, time permitting. I've done a bit of testing and didn't encounter any issues with my macbook, but since it's the first release of this package with 5.5.x kernel, there might be broken drivers/etc. Please do post here if that's the case.

@albalajba you'll need the broadcom-wl-dkms package for exactly the reason you specified: you aren't using the regular kernel. Make sure you install the headers as well. As for sleep mode, make sure you've enabled the wakeup service. I don't know if all of your interface troubles are because of you not using the dkms package but it's a good start.

I switched to this kernel on my Arch installed on Macbook Air and weird things happen, I seem to have no network interfaces (both wired and wireless) and also computer won't enter sleep mode after closing the lid but instead wake up 2 times while lid is closed (I can tell by apple logo being lit while lid is closed). Do you know how to remedy this? Also normal linux kernel is a dependency of broadcom-wl package (network driver for macbooks) so I can't even get rid of normal kernel.

Edit - Of course I was gettting weird lid closing behaviour - I didn't enable macbook-wakeup.service... This is fixed, still the problem remains with network.

@darthnoward: linux-macbook doesn't have /usr/lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43602-pcie.bin at all. You may have misunderstood something there.

@t3harvinator I tried again after reading your comment, and all goes well so far, after a week of running this kernel. No problems with wakeup at all. And noticeably faster start from off, sleep and suspend.

Thank you @annguyenfoss :)

I get:

failed to commit transaction (conflicting files) linux-firmware: /usr/lib/firmware/brcm/brcmfmac43602-pcie.bin exists in filesystem

how to solve this?

i havent had any problems on a mbp late 2011.

thanks @annguyenfoss for taking this project over btw.

@ohell @annguyenfoss I haven't had any issues with the macbook-wakeup service for the last few releases.

annguyenfoss commented on 2019-09-10 07:35

@ohell: Sorry for late response. I have been debugging that issue for months here also but so far I'm pretty clueless...

Thanks for the quick fix! I just did a clean build and install. However, it causes my MBP to not wake up after lid close/open at all, even after pressing Space/power etc. I have to hard boot the machine by holding down power for 10 seconds. I did enable the macbook-wakeup service as per the message.

Previously the behaviour was better - had to press space after lid open to wake up. There was no wifi after wake-up, but I had a hacky service running to restart adapter & wifi.

@dilyn: Right! Thanks a lot! I kept committing the wrong file due to a small change recently in my local workspace. And the difference are just one character.

Fixing now.

@all: I'm very sorry for all the issues you have experienced recently. This will not happen again.
