Pisi Linux on MacBookPro   Leave a comment

MacBookPro

This article tries to tell you how to install Pisi Linux on a MacBook Pro 3rd. (Santa Rosa, Nvidia GPU)

Note:This article is write from the old Pardus Wiki but we think it should Work in Pisi Linux, have it work well for you or did you have any Problems with it please give Feedback to the Pisi Linux Team.

For installing dual boot with MacOSX and Pardus you can resize your disk and get free spaces for Pardus installation; there is a tool „diskutil“ in MacOSX, but don’t forget it is not a toy – you can lose your data


Disk Informations

$ diskutil resizeVolume disk1s2 limits

 For device disk1s2 USB1:
 Current size: 99686268928 bytes
 Minimum size: 1118990336 bytes
 Maximum size: 99686268928 bytes

It shows (with limits option) you can resize your current disk at least 11~GB. So for resizing it as 75GB;

$ diskutil resizeVolume disk1s2 75G

   Started resizing on disk disk1s2 USB
   Verifying 
   Resizing Volume
   Adjusting Partitions 
   Finished resizing on disk disk1s2
   USB WARNING: You must now reboot!

After that you must have a 25G free space on your hard drive. For multi-boot you also need to install a boot manager from your current Mac OSX. You can use rEFIt, follow the instructions on the project site.After installing rEFIt you can use any bootable device (usb-disk,cd-rom etc.) to boot your MacBook Pro.

Installation

Install Pisi Linux as you wish, but don’t erase the first two partition (first one is refit, second one macosx) and dont forget to install bootloader to Pisi Linux installed partition.

Configuring

You can use following settings. Some utils at the end of the file.

Key Settings

For Turkish Q Keymap you can use the following Xmodmap configuration;


keycode 116 = ISO_Level3_Shift

keycode 115 = Super_L
keycode 108 = Delete 
keycode 49 = less greater NoSymbol NoSymbol bar 
keycode 94 = quotedbl backslash keycode 204 = F13

Also for shortcuts you can use xbindkeys with the following configuration;

„setkeybright minus“

Mod5 + F9

„setkeybright plus“

 Mod5 + F10

„setbright minus“

 Mod5 + F1

„setbright plus“

 Mod5 + F2

How to activate Eject CD button

Look here

AirPort

With current madwifi you can use the AirPort ver well. But sometimes it gets „wifi: overrun FIFO errors“; Workaround :

# iwpriv ath0 bgscan 0

To start at boot add to /etc/conf.d/local.start

Sound Card

To get work your microphone you can use „mbp3“ option with snd-hda-intel; edit /etc/modules.d/alsa and insert

options snd-hda-intel model=mbp3

and then restart the Computer

Utils

You will need some utilities to use your MacBook Pro efficiently..

Keyboard Light Setting

You can use the following C code with gcc -o setkeybright setkeybright.c

#include
#include
#include
#define TARGET „/sys/devices/platform/applesmc/leds:smc:kbd_backlight/brightness“
int limited(int inp) {
   if (inp<0) return 0;
   if (inp>255) return 255;
   return inp;
}
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
   int current,new;
   char tempC[10];
   FILE *fp = fopen(TARGET,“r“);
   if (!fp)
       return 1;
   fread(tempC,4,1,fp);
   fclose(fp);
   fp = fopen(TARGET,“w“);
   if (!fp)
       return 1;
   current=atoi(tempC);
   printf(„Current : %d\n“,current);
   if (argc >= 2) {
       new = current;
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“plus“))
           new = limited(current + 10);
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“minus“))
           new = limited(current – 10);
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“set“) && argc==3)
           new = limited((int)argv[2]);
       if (new != current) {
           printf(„New : %d\n“,new);
           fprintf(fp,“%d“,new);
       }
   }
   else printf(„Usage : %s plus or minus\n“,argv[0]);
   fclose(fp);
   return 0;

LCD Backlight Settings

You can use the following C code with gcc -O2 -o setbrigth setbright.c

#include
#include
#include
#include
int limited(int inp) {
   if (inp<0) return 0;
   if (inp>15) return 15;
   return inp;
}
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
   int current, new;
   if (ioperm(0xB2, 0xB3, 1) < 0) {
       perror(„ioperm failed (you should be root).“);
       exit(1);
   }
   outb(0x03, 0xB3);
   outb(0xBF, 0xB2);
   current = inb(0xB3) >> 4;
   printf(„Current: %d\n“,current);
   if (argc >= 2) {
       new = current;
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“minus“))
           new = limited(current – 1);
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“plus“))
           new = limited(current + 1);
       if (!strcmp(argv[1],“set“) && argc == 3)
           new = limited(atoi(argv[2]));
       if (new != current) {
           printf(„New: %d\n“,new);
           outb(0x04 | (new << 4), 0xB3);
           outb(0xBF, 0xB2);
       }
   }
   else printf(„Usage : %s plus or minus\n“,argv[0]);
   return 0;
}
