@m3thodic At least for the 2015 MBP, you should apply this kernel patch:

Greetings m3thodic.

Thanks for the kernel package, just trying it out. Suspend seems to work fine, however the brightness keys are not working for me. I have a 2015 Macbook Pro, i7 4980HQ, Radeon Graphics (I believe this is the culprit?)
I'd love to hear back from you on this. Thank you! (I've followed all of your instructions.)

Thanks, I was using bcwc-pcie-git, if I switch to bcwc-pcie-dkms it works fine. Looks like the dkms package drops it in the extra folder rather then extramodules.

@gnunn Do you have bcwc-pcie-dkms installed as well? I can confirm the camera works fine in stuff like Google Hangouts for me.

I've noticed that the facetimehd driver is no longer working with this kernel. I re-installed the bcwc-pcie-git package and I can see that the module is properly generated in /lib/modules/extramodules-4.6-macbook-pro/facetimehd.ko.gz however when you try to modprobe it fails:

[gnunn@gnunn-macbook /]$ sudo modprobe facetimehd
modprobe: FATAL: Module facetimehd not found in directory /lib/modules/4.6.3-1-macbook-pro

Under the standard Arch kernel it works fine, any ideas?

thanks a lot for providing this package, it helped me fix my backlight control and sleep/shut down problem! please let others find about this package by mentioning it on wiki for example here:,x#Screen_backlight

@gnunn yes I just synced abs and it looks like 4.6.2 is in core now. I'll work on updating this within the next ~24 hours.

gnunn commented on 2016-06-09 14:40

Any update to 4.6.1-2 to match the Arch linux package?

@Tom_B very welcome!
