A request from the "Hackintosh" community

Hello dear friends of the Linux Community!


My name is Felipe Ribba and I'm a Graphic Designer from Chile, South
America, and a computer hardware enthusiast.


You must know however, that I'm not a programmer nor developer, but I have
some basic notions on how the hardware works and I'm always eager to learn


I would love to know how to program drivers, modify os kernels, generate
ACPI calls and such, but I just don't know (yet). I lack the knowledge and I
would like to ask you a big favor...


On behalf of the "Hackintosh" community at tonymacx86.com and
insanelymac.com, I'm respectfully requesting you guys, if it's possible that
you could give us a hand in any way, such as generating a "twin" project or
a "spinoff" of the Linux Hybrid Graphics project, oriented improve the
Optimus support for the OSX platform.


Most of our research, guesses and findings (which are not that much) can be
found at http://www.tonymacx86.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=8446&start=0

The creator of the topic, Minihack and a few more guys there had a lot more
knowledge than me.


I've also tried to contact Netkas (at netkas.org) with no luck yet, but I
won't give up!



I'm an owner of a Hybrid Dell Vostro 3700 (IntelHD + Nvidia GT 330m) so if
you need me to test anything (settings, DSDT dumps, etc) I'll be glad to
help in any way.


Thank you so much for your time, sorry for my bad English, and I hope to
hear from you sometime soon! :)


Yours truly

Felipe Ribba E.
