well that wouldn't boot because i installed that via legacy mode, and now I'm in a hole because @RedHat@twitter.com don't ship mac efi tools by design. thanks a bunch. attempting workaround from this thread https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1751311
well, lets see - I had to add rpmfusion repositories to even get my fucking wifi to work https://gist.github.com/jamespamplin/7a803fd5be61d4f93e0c5dcdea3f99ee
then I found out the webcam wouldn't work, which turns out can only be enabled through installing an experimental driver that *extracts firmware from osx to even make it work* https://github.com/patjak/bcwc_pcie/wiki/Get-Started#firmware-extraction
I also forgot - I installed a package... to get cpu/gpu fans working. i didn't notice any fans beforehand but i'm not sure. this thread is my version of documentation btw :P https://github.com/linux-on-mac/mbpfan#fedora
also, had to disable sleep completely because it fucks up in a magnificent way. sssd_kcm.log goes read only and borks everything. https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/188559/disable-suspend-sleep-mode-completely-on-fedora-21
I am booting the entire os off an SD card slot which is rad (but i want to keep my os x install :) ) - i think it has something to do with it tho, because arch linux documents some trouble with this. https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/MacBookPro11,x#SD_Card_Reader but it looks like the module mine uses is xhci_plat_hcd
@Posty oh noes, this reminds me of when i first tried to install linux on my toshiba laptop years ago, i didn't know the fans weren't working and before i could fix it, the motherboard had fried itself. Not a good start!
