    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 12.04 on macbook pro9,2

    Basically the problem is with the DVD drive. For some reason, GRUB can't read directly from the drive. I had the same problem installing on my MBP 8,1. The way to solve it is like this: dd the .img...

    Has anyone figured out the DVD drive problem? It would be nice if I could use the DVD drive to play games and/or watch videos in Linux.

    Anyone know if the stock 3.1 kernel supports the wireless chip? I'm on Arch and I'm getting really sick of using this stupid wireless adapter. Any info would be appreciated.

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    Hmmm that's an interesting theory. What makes you think that? It happens in ALL distros. Maverick, Natty, even Archlinux.

    Re: Macbook Pro 8,1 + Maverick

    No you don't. Open up a terminal and type "synclient maxtaptime=0" then you can add that to your autostart list. OR you can edit the synaptics config to say 0.

    Re: Install Mac OS X without Time Machine?

    You might want to ask this on an Apple forum. I've been using OS X for years and have never had this problem before. Did you try putting the DVD in and holding down the option/alt key on boot?
