If you have a team of Appleand have tried to install a Linux distribution on it natively ye probably encountered the same problem as me: my MacBook Air in late 2010 should be first install the rEFIt tool for Linux partitions are recognized by the system.
no way: (
no way: (
: Fedora 17 could obviate such utility, because as said Matthew Garrett, one of the developers of Red Hat, this latest edition of the distribution have developed several components that help install Fedora 17 directly on a Mac and no apparent problems.
I advance that after reading the post image quickly downloaded Fedora 17 that suggested by the author (download the ISO here) to test the MacBook Air of which I speak … without success . Although the restart and let down the Alt key I can boot from the USB key where I installed the image, not over initial Fedora menu has to know if you try to install the distribution or Live mode.
seems therefore that the issue is still not polished, but in his post Garrett explains the obstacles that have been found and as has been overcome, in a text with a significant technical background which of course is interesting for fans to subject matter.
author ends by saying that there are still major problems-the Mac before 2007 use 32-bit firmware and firmware F17 is ready for 64-bit, but probably in Fedora 18 that support even more . Try to download and try some image of Fedora 17, but if you are in my same situation, try on your Mac and comment your experience.
Who knows: maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship between Linux and Apple computers …
