comment Does Arch-Linux work well on a macbook pro?
My Arch Linux installation is failing because grub-install on EFI system partition fails. I think this is because the Arch Linux installer can only be used through CD as Macbook BIOS does not allow non-EFI USB boot and the booting from CD does not load the EFI kernel modules. Do you have any experience to share?

comment What is the most compatible Linux distribution for MacBook Pro?
I am not able to get my ARCH recognized by EFI. Arch documentation is extensive in this regard. But, it is not working for me. Can you point to any blog or offer any tips?

comment Can't setup netcfg service in arch linux
Sorry, did not find anything revealing. If you just want to use ethernet interface, I am wondering why don't you just use dhcpd instead. I have stopped using netcfg even for wireless; wpa_supplicant and dhcpd works fine for me.

What does journalctl show for netcfg and could you paste what netcfg.service contents are?

comment How to permanently connect to WPA2AES wifi with OpenBSD (through cli)
@gaskopeter, I am using the exact same way of configuration for my wireless card. kuda has outlined the correct procedure and you can find it in OpenBSD faqs too. I think either you did not name your hostname file correctly - hostname.{interface name} or you did not specify wpakey password correctly in that file.

comment How to use /etc/fbtab in OpenBSD to secure X11?
man fbtab - will tell you the details about temporarily assigning ownership of devices based on login ttys. On my laptop, X11 gets the ttyC5. So, I can control the device ownership based on that. I don't know how useful this is though because we already have matchdep.allowaperture = 1 setting in /etc/sysctl.conf using which we can assign more privileges to Xorg.

comment No Audio Output with X11
The recommended way to start is now without --with-ck-launch. Just plain startxfce4 will do.
