    More details about the model:

    That has nothing to do with "Apple" but with the Ati Videocard.. try updating it.. Ati's support sucks though

    in a terminal:
    wget http://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/am...x86.x86_64.zip
    unzip amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.zip
    chmod +x amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run
    sudo ./amd-catalyst-13.4-linux-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/quantal
    sudo dpkg -i fglrx*.deb

    Re: Intel Mac (Mactel) FAQ

    Hi, I recently stumbled upon a huge Nvidia Optimus problem where Bumblebee failed to load the i915 driver on a MBP 6,2. I figured out a workaround where you just install nvidia-current and blacklist i915 and nouveau to only use the Nvidia card. The MBP 6,2 wiki has no information on the i915 driver even failing (or Bumblebee for that matter) and I was wondeirng how I could edit it to add the information. I apparently do not have permission to load the edited file with added info and I don't see any place on the forums to give the info.

    I've got Ubuntu 12.04.2-desktop-i386 on an Intel Mac Mini from 2006 with OS X 10.4. I've installed all the updates but it's still running pretty slow. Are there any drivers I need to install, or is this a hardware issue?

    Perhaps the FAQ can be updated to reflect that booting to external drives is now possible through the use of external thunderbolt connected drives.

    Thunderbolt is basically a PCI express connection. I've read in these forums that Thunderbolt support was added to the kernel in 3.12.

    I've been using the Seagate GoFlex 2.5" Thunderbolt/SATA enclosure/adapter without problem (14.04).

    Hi, for information, installation with 64 bit images is possible on such particular Mac with 32 bit EFI/firmware and 64 bit processor. My iMac 6.1 with 3Go RAM works fine in unity and gnome-shell.
    I have used the ubuntu-14.04.1-desktop-amd64+mac.iso burned on a DVD (no boot with USB key). All others images were only bootable in 32 bit (only DVDs).
    So, providing amd+mac 64 bit iso is mandatory for these machines and I hope to get it for 14.10 and next.
