View Full Version : [ubuntu] Macbook Aluminum

July 30th, 2009, 07:19 AM
Has anyone successfully used Ubuntu on the new Macbook Aluminum?

I have a 13 inch one and I'm dying to install Ubuntu, but I heard there were some serious issues such as the CPU overheating and very short battery life.


This was back in January though... has anything changed since then?

Is there any way around these issues or should I just wait until Ubuntu supports Macbooks better?

About increasing battery life, you should use powertop. And you should let the minimum fan speed above 3000 to make your mac cool.
