Is there any knowledge of display problems on intel MacBook Pros/ apple hardware? I’m trying ruthlessly to get antergos installed on my MBP 8,2 and no matter which DE or any other arch derivatives (including self-assembled / manual archlinux install) have been able to boot properly :/ it’s unreal. I can boot grub2 configurations all day, and have tried & failed every grub linux cmd parameter modification I’ve found around these communities/wikis/google that’ve been suggested to fix this video-driver or mode configuration troubleshootage.
The solution has got to be something trivially simple… because obviously if I can boot into any given antegros/archlinux install media and have the respective GUI load effortlessly & function perfectly, then it exemplifies that I’m not just dreaming on some far-fetched-impossible-fantasy.
In the past, I’ve ran ubuntu/mint/debian 8 all with graphical DE’s that seriously make a humiliating mockery of my efforts with arch-based DE’s. Real talk, is there some wizardly sorcerers voodoo secret that I’m missing in my research…or am I just a nincompoop who should take refuge back in the safe/stable/ugly/bloaty/mainstream line of distros (aforementioned present company excluded, of course)?? …ughh. I can’t settle for that…when there’s one’s like antergos out there :]
Can anyone please share some wisdom/experience/insight/help/direction with the MacBook Pro 8,2 (early 2011) graphics display issue?
Thank you in advance… and shedding light on this would be useful for others that have a similar situation for future purposes.
Also, by all means, feel free to ask me to provide any more information/ logs/ specifications/or details of any kind
