Macs without OS X - Off topic
Phyrne
Any of you guys out there running a different *nix OS on Apple Mac hardware?
Let's see what you got! May aswell include what kinda setup you've got going on too. Should make for an interesting thread me thinks :)

I'll start: MacBook Air mid 2011 (4,1) 11" model - Arch Linux | CK kernel patchset | awesome WM

I used to run FreeBSD/OpenBSD/NetBSD, Linux and Solaris on my Macbooks but now it wont work anymore :s

Well that sucks! The recent work Intel have been doing with their drivers for *nix, you'd think that most stuff would run smoothly :/

Well the macbooks are 2,2 and 5,2

HA. Tell that to my Intel HD 3000. 800x600 on vesa FTW because there's no KMS support for Intel GPUs. -_-

@Saos, it's coming.

I just fixed my problem. I'll make a thread ;)

Well, perhaps I should have said "IThe recent work Intel have been doing with their drivers for Linux" :P KMS worked 'out of the box' on Arch for me... before I'd even installed their driver!

I'm going to be taking my first steps into the BSD world next week, going to install FreeBSD on my desktop. I'm quite excited! :D

I needed to burn a refit cd to update refit after I installed FreeBSD or it wouldn't boot anything.
