Major Edit

Hi all, I'm working on a major edit for this page. It seems to me that a lot of this article can be condensed and made a little more clear, so I'm taking a go at it. I have already changed a few sections. It will probably take me a couple days to finish everything, so let me know what you think as time progresses.

Partition Section

This section is a mess. I think that we should just find the fastest way to partition the hard drive, with a preference to tools on the Arch Linux install disk (as long as the work). Having multiple ways of creating the partitions seems confusing. I recommend using parted as it is part of Arch and can handle GPT format hard drives. --Arcanazar 13:36, 17 July 2009 (EDT)


yes i think i think also that we can completely delete triple boot section and even the dual boot section redirecting users who wants dual boot to another guide like Ubuntu i think this because Archlinux users are experience users and precisely for this we can write a short partition section

--nTia89 15:00, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

on the dual boot section ew can only write what they must do but NOT how example

  1. install refit
  2. partition disk with .....
  3. install arch | and when you install grub select to install in the /boot NOT in /dev/sda

wiFi section

needs to be reworked

--nTia89 16:49, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

What is wrong with the Wifi section? I have a first-gen MacBook and wireless works out of the box for me. --Arcanazar 16:54, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

nothing is wrong, only needs a reorganization

new macbook note

needs to be putted in begin of the page , first of all

--nTia89 16:49, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

Why don't we move this page to one called "Apple" or something similar. It doesn't matter whether you're installing on a MacBook/Pro, Mac Mini, etc. except for drivers, which are easily listed on one page. At the very least, the new MacBook page should be merged with this one. We shouldn't have to make a new page each time a new model comes out.

--Arcanazar 16:54, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

IMHO we don't need it. first we must do very well, that all works for macbook. For me a Apple page OK but that contain less things

Doesn't work !!!

home sharing and sound doesn't works for me !!!

--nTia89 16:48, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

I'll try home sharing later. I know that the old instructions for configuring ALSA worked for me.

--Arcanazar 16:54, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

I just checked the ALSA page, and those were the only instructions that I had to use to set up sound. It worked just fine for me. What generation is your MacBook?

--Arcanazar 17:03, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

i've a 2,1 macbook white

--nTia89 06:34, 18 July 2009 (EDT)

The iSight installation wouldn't work for me. I had to do it manually. It's easy: sudo ift-extract -a /media/MacOSX//System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleUSBVideoSupport.kext/Contents/MacOS/AppleUSBVideoSupport
