    [ubuntu] Re: mac pro core 2 duo installation fail

    Cool, glad it worked out for you. ^^ Incase you used acpi=off, make sure to put it all back to normal in the "grub.conf". I found out it makes the fans stop from working. No good in the long run.

    Have you tried refit? It is an alternate EFI thingie. Something like a bootloader only for macs.

    [ubuntu] Re: Macbook Air and Ubuntu ?

    Ubuntu on Mac is so so. I would strongly advise you to make backups beforehand. And dont use acpi off as boot parameter as this may fry your hardware, when it gets hot.
