    Exclamation Problem with rEFIt.

    Ok, so im on a Mac Book Pro (5,5) and I wanted to dual boot with Ubuntu 11.10. I followed these instructions https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...elInstallation , and ran into an error on the part where I sync my partion tables. I havea Mac partion, a 1gb swap, and a 90 gig linux. rest is for mac. When i try and sync the tables, this is what i get

    Code:
    Startng gptsync.efi
     
    Current GPT partition table
    #        Start LBA                             End LBA                           Type
