updating EFI Firmware of MBP to vers 1.5 makes live unusable

hi all

since i've updated the efi firmware of my macbook, live is having constantly audio dropouts. the cpu meter is jumping around like gone mad. 8O

installing the controller app "cool book controller" helped a bit. this app controls the cpu adressing speed and sets the cpu clock to more constant values. now my mbp gets cooking hot, but dropouts still persist, even at low cpu usage.

anyone experiencing same problem??


oops - live can be so easy!!!

Sounds like a problem with the Airport update. ... 4&tstart=0
