    I seem to have added my SD card reader (or maybe my network card; realtek pxe?) to the boot list, but every time I try to boot I get an error that says something along the lines of: "Media...

    This tutorial which I used for installing Lucid & later Maverick is very good. The keyboard/screen backlight settings should work for you too.

    [ubuntu] Mount Mac Partition at Startup

    As many of us dual-booters, I keep most of my files on my mac partition. Specifically, my music. One of my favorite things to do is to point Rhythmbox to my iTunes music folder, and just play from...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 10.10 and MBP Unibody Multitouch Trackpad?

    This has been true at least since 10.04. A lot of us were hoping UTouch would work a lot better with the MBP touchpad, but I think they have designed it more with touchscreens in mind...

    Could you explain the benefits of doing that and how?

    Currently, the MBR basically exists to communicate the GPT partition to GRUB, and any OS that can't read GPT, correct? force-loading...

    [ubuntu] Re: Help with rEFIt being slow, GRUB

    Problem solved! The problem as that Ubuntu was reading the "protective" MBR partition table, which says that there are no linux devices present, since it says there's just one "GPT" partition. I...

    [ubuntu] Re: Help with rEFIt being slow, GRUB

    I believe the problem is not rEFIt-based. rEFIt I believe hands off the computer to the linux partition and then runs GRUB, normally. Now, I get a "No bootable device found, insert bootable device,"...

    [ubuntu] Re: OSX + Win7 + 10.04, 15" MBP

    I would actually highly advise against using the OSX tools to create a windows partition. What bootcamp does is create a hybrid GPT-MBR partition table, which is uglier than ****. Although it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Help with rEFIt being slow, GRUB
