dmidecode not working on a macbook 2,1 (Debian squeeze/amd64)

After installing Debian Squeeze AMD64 on a macbook 2,1, I can't get dmidecode to work :

# dmesg | grep DMI
[    0.000000] DMI not present or invalid.

dmidecode is needed eg by pommed, a daemon used on macbooks under linux for controlling screen brightness.

I have not found any solutions to this problem, and I think it's grub related.

I'm booting using refit, which chainloads grub2 with the following grub.cfg config :

search --set /vmlinuz
linux /vmlinuz noefi acpi=force video=efifb root=/dev/sda3
initrd /initrd.img

I tried to remove the acpi option, to boot with noacpi, and the problem is still there.
Removing the fakebios option disable keyboard input.

Is there any solution to this problem ?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
