I made the article the fast way, just in case I forget, the info is there. I haven’t had time to style it just yet because I felt weird with the editing toolbar, so I ended making some hybrid between HTML code and editor code.
Can’t post the link because forum keeps flagging the post as spam, so all I can say is that the title is:
If there’s anything I left behind let me know.
Hello, @bartatantergos .
All those MacBooks (9,1 and 5,1) have nvidia graphic cards, that (I think) happen to have better open source drivers than the ATI Radeon 6750M MacBook 8,2 has under the hood. (For example, xf86-video-ati + mesa3D are unable to create shaders, because TGSI translation is buggy for some season. That makes me unable to play any 3D game)
I don’t have a complete idea of how GPUs work, but I suspect that this kind of bugs snowball down to lightdm initialization, and crash the system.
I have rEFInd installed from long ago, because I had a triple boot OSX+Windows+Linux MInt, so all the tests I made were made with rEFInd (except for that time Cnchi overwrote it with grub2)
@anarch, I’m glad to do it. I’ll try to write it this sunday, if I have the time to understand the wiki structure and make an entry with a coherent style.
