Downloaded rc4 and installed tonight. So far no issues to report, everything working as expected. Maxxed the ram to 2.5gb today so hard to tell if the update has any speed benefit as the machine is running faster now anyway. Will report back if anything untoward crops up but so far looking good. Thanks guys.

Hey guys

 

Nice work on the build script, seems to do a great job of building the /extra folder for my D820. The only thing I've noticed so far is that the DVD drive is still not being picked up by the OS. I presume that this requires a small change to the dsdt? :-)

 

Will do more testing and report any other issues I find.

 

Keep up the good work!

Chris

Couple of things that may be worth flagging up since installing rc4.

 

The menu bar battery info shows power source as adaptor even when not plugged in. Not sure if this was an issue before, I don't remember seeing it.

 

Since the update the computer seems to be running very hot. Currently the cores are 72/69, it used to be in the mid to high 50's. I have Coolbook installed and set to 50 but it seems to have no effect. The only app running right now is Safari and no flash.

Sinjon, could you upgrade your bios to the latest version ?

 

Heating, did you choose the "power package" durring build ?

 

Another bug seems to be related to speedstep.. when you unplug the power cord and replug it, it steps down in speed.. but not back up....

Hi Leon

 

I've been putting off the BIOS upgrade for ages as everything seemed ok but it looks like I need to bite the bullet. I'll do it over the next few days and let you know the outcome. Any recommendation for best method? I have the Dell double USB DVD drive if that's needed.

 

I'm pretty sure I chose the "power package" but I'll run it again to make sure

 

Thanks

1. Use unetbootin from windows to create a boot able usb _freedos_ pen

2. download the bios update and put it on then

3. stick the pen in the dell, boot on it, choose fail save boot

4. type: c: [enter]

5. "filename of update".exe [enter]

 

there you go.. 5 mins. work and still time left to finish your beer :D

Just want to thank Leon for this great site, had problems with D620 not recognizing the DVD drive in Snow 10.6.4. Installed this package and voila! Unfortunately however, I've lost audio...any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks again.
