I’m using openSUSE 11.1 beta 5 on a MacBook right now (Intel C2D OS 10.5.5). I’m running it as a guest in VirtualBox. It runs a little slow in virtualization but everything works, including wireless and sound. I haven’t tested the microphone with skype.
As far as installling it with boot camp or wiping off OS X and replacing it with openSUSE, I don’t have any experience with that.
thanks. i was planning to install it on a macbook with the following specifications:
Model Name: Mac
Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
just wanted to see if sound and wireless are detected out-of-the-box.
no matter with the skype, if you can listen to music or watch a video, then the sound on skype should be fine also, right?
i have one more question, can one repartition hard discs on a mac using gparted, if bootcamp is not available. i would like to dual boot the above mac with opensuse 11.1.
how do i repartition the drives?
any suggestion is highly appreciated.
thanks in advance.
