It had been a long time since I’d pulled my white Macbook 2,1 out of its faux leather travelling bag and upgraded it, so I decided that midnight on a Saturday might not be too late. This is the same Macbook that Wes Fryer encouraged me to buy back in early 2007 at TCEA Conference, that travelled with me to New Zealand, that I’ve used for my keynotes, and continues to do well for me. Keynote remains my favorite presentation tool, although I have hopes that LibreOffice will someday allow easy embedding of videos.
Afterwards, I restored my Mac drive from backup, then booted off Peppermint Two CD (USB boot just didn’t work) and installed it on the partition I’d set aside for it.
When I restarted the Macbook, the Mac side came right up. I installed rEFIT (http://refit.sourceforge.net/), a program that allows you to choose whether you want to boot to Mac or Linux (or Windows). I had to do the installation through the Terminal.
That was pretty much it, except for additional customizations that I normally do with Peppermint Two. The Mac side continued as always, working without problem (thank goodness!).
One of the best points to read on the Ubuntu site is this statement:
Anything not mentioned here probably already works out of the box.
