airtonixanyone else had experience dual booting ubuntu on the latest macbook pro? (comes installed with macosx lion 10.7 and what i think might be bootcamp)01:32
airtonixrefit fails to produce a boot screen, and i can actually get 11.10 live cd running without any modifications to the macbook01:33
airtonixmy next step is to investigate how to resize the main partition to make room for a ubutu install, which is going to be done in terminal most likely since there isn't any available function to resize the main partition01:34

xannenyou should installed 11.04, more reliable and stable.08:23
