    Re: BCM 4331 drivers

    Unfortunately, I think you misunderstood me. I am looking for a replacement for the b43 drivers for this chip because the b43 drivers only support b/g, and the network I am connecting to supports...

    BCM 4331 drivers

    EDIT: I figured out how to do it, although I'm not sure it will be stable. I went to the software sources application and to the additional drivers tab and unselected the proprietary and applied...

    [ubuntu] Re: Is Mactel's macfanctld necessary in 13.04?

    For the EFI booting, you might consider using rEFInd. I wrote a guide for the Retina Mac, located here <Link>. The rEFInd install instructions should work if you can boot your mac into Linux...

    Are you currently using grub to boot into Windows? (Does rEFInd load the grub menu when it boots the legacy OS, and does the grub menu contain an option to load your Windows partition?) If not,...

    [ubuntu] Re: How can I remove rEFInd

    mkdir /Volumes/EFI
    sudo mount -t msdos /dev/disk0s1 /Volumes/EFIThat should mount it.

  8. Re: How to set a lower resolution other than the native 2880x1800 on the 15' rMBP?

    You can't exactly make the settings "stick," but you can write a simple shell script that calls the script I gave you with the default width you want and make that run at startup, which achieves...
  9. Re: How to set a lower resolution other than the native 2880x1800 on the 15' rMBP?

    No problem.

    Let me know if you can't get through to github, as that's where the shell script is being stored. If you can't, you can still use the command to scale it, and I'll put the script up...
  10. Re: How to set a lower resolution other than the native 2880x1800 on the 15' rMBP?

    [ubuntu] Re: ubuntu on new retina macbook : any experience ?

    I can confirm that the HDMI out works, though I am running the nvidia drivers. I don't have a mini-DVI cable on me, so I can't test that.

    pavucontrol doesn't seem to see my mic either.

    Just for clarity, the guide linked by nsicad was written by me. I haven't tried the alternate method mentioned by ksatta1, but most of the time the Wifi works perfectly for me. (The internet where...
