    Default OpensSuse 11 => MacBook rEFIt

    Hi,

    Usually I don't make questions on Forums (Google is my *best* friend!!! )

    But, this I am not being able to solve by my self.

    Ok, I installed it, made the first reboot, made the gptsync, entered in the system again using the instalattion cd:

    mount /dev/sda4 /mnt
    mount -t proc none /mnt/proc
    mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev

    chroot /mnt /bin/bash

    grub --batch < /etc/grub.conf

    Error 17.

    (It was using the right partition (hd0,3)).

    After that I started to try with Lilo.

    Entered in Repair system, changed the boot manager to Lilo, instaled, made the gptsync first time, entered again using the rescue system, made the steps above, in the place of grub --batch, i just typed lilo, ot showed linux added. Perfect.

    But, when I tried to do the gptsync again, it returned:

    Analysis Inconclusive, will not touch this disk.

    And when I tried to boot the linux I get:

    missing operating system.

    Looks like some bug in rEFIt, but i'm not sure.

    Another strange behavior is that if I enter in any of refit options (sync, shell, or info) I can't boot any other system without reboot the macbook before.

    Well, any tips will be welcome!

    Thanks in advance

    Leon

    I'm having the exact same problem. when I use sda4 it works but there is no partition there even though it says it has installed.

    Gives you the Missing Operating System Message?

    that is exactly what happens. I just got a new macbook a few days ago and I couldn't wait to install this but I just can't seem to get it working?

    Only that elilo is how this is controlled, i.e. the Boot Camp compatibility mode. Perhaps the path statements are not correct? No first hand experience with this, sorry.

    One strange thing is if I try inside grub:

    find /boot/grub/stage1

    it says that is impossible to find (but the file is there).

    I will give a try to the Xubuntu...

    But I really like OpenSuse.
