Mr 4 is having a big cry because he still doesn’t want to be 4 years old, to remain 3 forever. Today’s trigger was the “bigger nappies for 4 year olds”.

Literally no option to pre warn techs of incoming issues. Pain in the arse. Just gonna dump it on them at the time, I bet all that needs to happen is a battery replacement. Let’s see if I’m right.

I have a trackpad problem with my MacBook Pro. I booked in a session with @Apple@twitter.com, they tell me everything I need to do beforehand which I already did, but they won’t let me tell them before the appointment that the battery life is also in need of service. I know these are related

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. wiki.archlinux.org/title/MacBo but it looks like the module mine uses is xhci_plat_hcd

also, had to disable sleep completely because it fucks up in a magnificent way. sssd_kcm.log goes read only and borks everything. unix.stackexchange.com/questio

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 github.com/linux-on-mac/mbpfan

hey @dropbox@twitter.com - your app won't update correctly on fedora.
your fedora 34 repository is non-existent. it only goes up to 32. I could point it to 32 but that's probably not a good idea.

also weirdly i get rEFInd to boot osx if i do nothing on boot, and i think a grub loader if i hold option

completely weird, but it works.

I started this at about 11 hours ago. considered functional about 10 minutes ago.
So, I have had a real... linux experience today. whee.

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* github.com/patjak/bcwc_pcie/wi

@grumpysmiffy i kinda want to stay in the redhat surrounds so I'm currently installing fedora which has apparently no problem with os x and i kind of wish i did this hours ago, but i did kinda want to do the enterprise one first to see if i can :)
