I installed ubuntu server 11.10 on my macbook 1,1.

In order to reboot after power failure I have to set a specific "AFTERG3" bit using setpci.

The solution for a macMini can be found here:

Does anybody have an idea how to find out the corresponding command for my hardware?

I finally found the solution:

setpci -s 00:1f.0 0xa4.b=0

The poster in my linked question just forgot one 0.

The technical reason for using the setpci -s 0:1f.0 0xa4.b=0 magic is described here:
