having a crack installing redhat 8 on my macbook pro for funsies

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 bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.c

Aaand the workaround now fails, and further in another thread a yum update breaks everything. Guess red hat is out the window. Hello Ubuntu I suppose.

@Posty Respect, mate. I have one (cheap, refurbished) laptop per operating system. Had all three going today, screen shared/VNC onto the Mac Mini with the dual monitors. The EliteBook makes a very passable server.

@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 :)

@Posty I TOTALLY get that. I'm currently tooling up for my (hopefully, please, please,please,please) new gig. OS variety isn't actually relevant, so just using my Ubuntu laptop and chucking PostrgreSQL and PostGIS on there. If this comes off, I might even be firing up the soldering iron.
