I'm having problems with this how to. I've installed ubuntu 12.10 (64BIT) onto my macbook pro 3,1 (nvidia 8600M GT). I've tried every setup and I'm able to boot ubuntu but only onto terminal (no graphics) when I try to run "startx" I get an error NVIDIA: could not open the device file /dev/nvidia0 (input/output error).

I was able to get to passed the blank screen with the "nomodeset" edit
