- Installing Linux on a Mac 2 answers
I just upgraded to a 1tb HDD in my MacBook Pro (non-retina) and would like to dual boot from OS X to a linux distro.
I'd like to find out a few things so I can be better prepared and informed for this process.
1) Partitioning... Should I... a) Use BootCamp to create the second partition? b) Use Disk Utility to resizes and create the second partition? c) Create the partition from within the Linux live USB or DVD?
2) Which distro is recommended? I've used both Mint and Ubuntu in the past and definitely prefer distros based on Debian that use
apt-get as opposed to the others like SUSE.
3) I've heard that it's a pain to get the wifi to work, is that true? If so, how to I enable the drivers? Is there an
apt-get command I can use in order to do so?
4) Other than the wifi difficulties is there anything else I should be aware of and be prepared for?
