  1. Re: Getting External Hard Drive Ubuntu installation bootable without rEFind

    I found this whole issue tiresome for years. EFI dual booting both in PC and MAC seems cumbersome and annoying. My MAC AIR is actually easier to dual boot than one of my Windows 10 machines.

  6. Nouveau dirver "disappears" in 14.04.3 with any upgrade GeForce 320M

    I am not sure what the heck is going on. I have tried this 4 times on a late 2010 Mac Air. The usb key boots fine in EFI mode, installs to a partition fine, boots fine but if any upgrades are done,...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Seriously thinking of installing Ubuntu; hope to have some questions answered.

    It did seem promising. i created the file and put it in place and rebooted. no change. Even OnBoard's built in right click feature doesn't work: I've got no right click availability? insane.

  14. My expericene with Ubuntu 14.04 on a MBA 5,2

    I can say that I am fairly impressed with how well Ubuntu 14.04 runs on my generation of Air 5,2 (2013) right out of the box.

    I have the wl driver installed for wifi over the open source driver.
  15. Re: Any way to get more details on the mactel ppa repos--what the packages do?

    I honestly think if you are using 14.04, you really don't need anything extra. The only thing I would recommend is installing xserver-xorg-input-mtrack and use that driver for the touchpad so that...

    [xubuntu] Re: 14.04 troubles

    Sounds like grub didn't update properly.

    You could boot that, then chroot into your system

    Once running another ubuntu media on the machine:

  19. [ubuntu] Re: I have 13.10 installed w persistence on a 4gb flash drive. Can I update it?

    Um, you can BUT it will probably max out your storage file. I'd selectively update things like your browser but would not bother with other packages unless you observe they have a bug. You can...

    Re: [ubuntu] bootable backups

    Easiest with no other tools is to use Clonezilla-live bootable CD/usb

    You could also boot using any linux live CD/usb and use the dd command
