Looks like the systemd macbook-wakeup.service file is not packaged anymore? Sounds like a bug to me. Can someone confirm this? (tested on latest build 4.13.4-1)

Getting a weird freezing issue when playing Youtube through Firefox on the latest update. I'm using a MBP 11,5 any advice?

Well, backlight will work with stock kernel if I use apple_set_os.efi by 0xbb ( But I have to run it on every reboot. I don't reboot that often but it's quite tedious.

For me stock kernel works for almost anything except backlight. Backlight works only for radeon_b10/brightness and only in a off/on way. So 0 means screen is off and any other number means max out backlight. With this patched kernel all works great.

I have mid-2016 macbook pro (idk if it's 11,4 or 11,5 but it has discrette Radeon graphics). So I guess it's a bit early for deprecation :)

@enrique Thanks for the feedback!

Can anyone else confirm on the functionality of 4.12.4? If everything looks fixed I'll deprecate this package.

Yes it looks like 4.12.4-1-ARCH works on my MacBookPro11,4

@m3thodic brigthness keys for keyboard and screen works for me

@jbg What about the brightness keys, do they work out of the box as well?

FYI, as of the 4.12.4-1 release of the standard "linux" package (normal Arch kernel) my Macbook powers off, reboots and suspends without any issue without needing this patched kernel any more.

@rossome Please don't flag this package out-of-date unless it's older than what is being shipped with Arch Linux. I understand says 4.12.1 is out, but this package is updated only when Arch Linux updates their kernel package (especially for major version bumps).

Question for anyone using this package with a MacBookPro 11,4:
if you have a thunderbird-ethernet dongle plugged in when you suspend, does your computer resume properly? Mine wakes up enough to show me what was on the screen
when I suspended, but it seems to be otherwise completely dead... no reaction to the mouse or the keyboard.

(For that matter, if anyone with any other type of Mac wants to comment, it might be useful information.)
