Maybe I won't have any problems regarding the kernel with the normal Fedora Workstation. I'll keep you updated. Have a nice day! If nothing at all shows up even with quiet off, then this looks more like an issue with the kernel image or initrd, not with any missing drivers. Some things to check:.
I did what you told me and everything seems to be alright:. I've been waiting at this point for about 30min and nothing happens. So apparently it successfully loads the kernel and the ramdisk, right? So what could go wrong after that, which causes the system to freeze? Sorry guys, I think I am missing a piece of the story. I followed this guide: Then I mounted the usb drive on the same mac running macos and edit the grub. Any idea?
You get a working keyboard have essentially two options: B14ckSh4d0w That initrd doesn't look right: Having said that, that by itself can't be the reason why it's not booting it would just mean you end up with the keyboard not working. I am using a 13,1 and thus cannot see the SSD without a kernel patch, or kernel version 4.
I found a utility called isorespin. However, I was not able to get the internal keyboard and touchpad to work. I'm probably missing a step. So, to make things easier I thought I'd try Fedora to be able to follow your method better. How do you patch the installation media so that the Fedora installer can actually see the hard drive? Sorry for my long inactivity, but I was really busy the last days. Anyway, I still wasn't able to get it working with any newer kernel. I took a look into the initramfs of the working kernel and it looks exactly the same:.
Also the 4. Another thing I've tried is to use the Fedora 26 Alpha. It's just the same as if I would try to boot Fedora 25 with an updated kernel. So, after all, I will run Fedora in a virtual machine now as a provisional solution. But thank you anyway for all the effort you made!
I really appreciate that. Sorry, I still don't get it, it seems to me a 'chicken and egg problem': DefinitionBlock " dsdt. I don't understand what this change is meant to accomplish, so I'm not sure if I should mess with it or not. ManWithCamera I guess you have a different model than I do, but that's ok: I have a Macbook 13,3 and I had to remove the the first section covering 13,1 and 13,2 Macs from the patch in order for the hwdb to compile successfully and thus the patch to work.
Helped to read up on evdev and learn the command for triggering a manual hwdb recompile but not sure if that was necessary. I am running Debian Testing and haven't been able to get the amdgpu Pro driver to compile due to changes from the Stable distribution I think, but Xorg is running fine with the ati module and Debian's amdgpu kernel module except for screen dimming, and the dpi was way off Fixed now. I have not tried the amdgpu-pro driver, only the admgpu one in kernel 4.
Lastly, I presume you followed the instructions in the "Screen Brightness Control" section above? And it still doesn't work? Did you verify the modified apple-gmux module is being used? Just had success adjusting the backlight for apple-gmux. And now, the touchbar buttons work too. I had to reinstall at least once so maybe that fixed it.
First I apologize if this is the wrong place but I know nothing about Linux and these commands are greek to me. I have a MacBook Pro 13,2 and I just want to get Can anyone give me step by step instructions on what to do and get it be loaded on a usb stick prior to booting up linux so it will be ready. Thanks in advance. I am still trying to get the brightness working on my MacBook Pro 14 with Ubuntu In case you have trouble selecting a working usb wifi adapter: TEWUB did the trick for me; see also https: It provides basic functionality, enabling the touchbar and switching between modes based on the FN key.
Installing Telnet in MacOS with Homebrew
Furthermore the touchbar is automatically switched off if no internal keyboard, touchpad, or touchbar input is received for 60 seconds; any internal keyboard or touchpad input switches it back on. Thanks a lot to all of you and especially to roadrunner2 and Dunedan. Audio seems to be the last big issue for me. Next, you have to boot using Mac's option key and then follow roadrunner2 instructions.
Hello roadrunner2 and kjano for ubuntu help and i did not know one could give kernel arg version to isorespin. I have done all steps including "add the modules listed in keyboard. Thats what i did till now. Now i have maybe a good news concerning the wifi chipset linked to the macbook 12 version: BUT my windows bootcamp partition does not work anymore i use refind Blinitializelibrary failed 0xcbb. For ubuntu users reading the thread i made a "for NOOB tuto" here. The Keyboard and mouse were working good till reboot.
I am running a persistent USB and I went through the steps above and all was well till I rebooted the next time and all my work has disappeared. Now that I have to start over is there a way for me to save this to my persistent USB so that it will stay till the 4.
MacBook Pro 13,2. The tutorial above assumes you're installing Linux on the disk. You can certainly modify the USB instead, but the details of that depend very much on the distro you're using: You say have a "persistent USB" - does that mean you made it persistent as decribed in these instructions? Or are you using http: If the latter, then the FAQ there indicates that doesn't work for system updates, so you probably need to modify the base system it's based on.
The details for Ubuntu will be different, of course. Maybe a thermal issue? In short, you should type those commands in exactly as shown - don't replace anything. Alright, thank you, Yeah I'm a complete noob with linux, so even installing a simple driver is a pain in the ass for me. I know this probably doesn't affect your machine, but I'm wondering if you may have any thoughts on the problem with the NVMe at boot time from this comment and downward.

And thanks for the fix of the touchpad init, I'm using it on linux-next right now, and I'll let you know if I find any problems. Guess i was wrong.. Windows can't boot anymore, i have the same error as chisNaN. Maybe it's obvious but where should one put the boot loader when installing Linux on a new partition created from within MacOS?
With KDE Neon, I'm getting an error from ubiquity at the end of the install saying it was unable to create a boot loader. I tried placing it on the same partition as KDE Neon, on a separate small parition formatted as both efi and fat32 and even on the same partition as MacOS, but no dice. Starting ubiquity from a terminal and setting the -b option to skip that step, I can successfully install KDE Neon, but of course KDE Neon is nowhere to be seen when I boot the computer.
I have rEFInd installed, so maybe I need to configure it to find the install somehow? I took a bit different of an approach than what I've seen here or here I think it's a bit simpler and can post them if you want. Something to do with Apple's new FS? There is space available to the installer - I just can't get the installer to see it. I've gotten ubuntu It seems amds primary activity has been in the 4. Xrandr detects the resolution and mode, but fetching the edid data for my second monitor shows "too many extension blocks".

I'll pickup some new cables and see if that helps, if anyone has found a specific adapter that works I would love to know what kind. I was able to get the 4k monitor running x 60hz even though my monitor complains about the cable. I imagine it will be a while before this branch makes it to any stable ppa's, but if anyone knows a maintained one building these let me know. Instead, your distros installer should automatically be creating a top-level directory called EFI exactly like that on one of the partitions, and placing the appropriate grub files there usually in an appropriately named subdirectory - the EFI firmware will look for that directory on all partitions.
As I said, the EFI directory can be on any partition, as long as it's a top-level directory there. Here are two specific working examples of layouts:. But they should recognize this is an EFI machine and do the right thing. Needing an external USB keyboard and mouse is expected, until you build the applespi driver and load it.
