    YAY - got the wifi working, thanks again Ebsi - went for the
    "b43/STA - No Internet access"


    Option on this page:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...Driver/bcm43xx

    Didnt appear on the restricted list, but loading the "wl" driver worked just fine and re-appeared following a reboot.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Very nice! Please find attached a (new and experimental) dkms version of applesmc that should get your temperature and fans working. It would be great it you would like to report back the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep applesmc:
    cat /sys/devices/platform/applesmc.768/temp*label
    Thanks!

    it is possible The patch for the keyboard and touchpad needs aditions.

    Can someone provide me "lsusb and lspci" output of the MacBookAir3,2 ?
    Thanks for the patch! Since the device id is new, i wonder what actually changed... A picture created with mtview could help find any peculiarities (http://bitmath.org/code/mtview/).

    Cheers!

    Sounds good! But I wonder about keyboard backlight support... I assume it should be present? Attached a somewhat different dkms package, in case that makes a difference. Otherwise, it would be very interesting to see the full register set, as per this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=924096

    Thanks!

    Also, the nomodeset option got me into the 10.10 installer and I'm now posting from my Ubuntu installation. I installed the restricted nVidia and wireless drivers and everything seems to be working well except the trackpad which is acting kind of funky.

    I'll do some more research tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.

    If you've not seen it you guys might want to add your output details to this forum post, along with the amount of RAM installed and whether it is 3,1 or 3,2:
