Dual boot OS X and Slackware64-current (Thu Jun 27 23:56:34 UTC 2013) with elilo?

hi all.

I am installing Slackware64-current (last update Thu Jun 27 23:56:34 UTC 2013) on my Macbook Pro.

I am use usb stick for installation, copy EFI and slackware64 folder from repository, and use bless the efi file.

$ sudo bless --setBoot --folder /<mountpoint>/EFI/BOOT --file /<mountpoint>/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI
After reboot Macbook, i am hold the option key, choose the bootable usb, and everything is ok for installation (before ctrl-alt-del restart, i am exec "modprobe efivars" which i don't know what is that).

The problem is after installation, i don't know how to boot Slackware (or elilo inside that). I am trying install rEFInd too but not helped, when i am choose option boot from elilo-x86_64.efi the ELILO load to long.

I am also add elilo.conf after installation. this is the configuration
Now, i am surrender and ask here. Any help?

Why you don't use a virtual machine ? That would solve you a lot of problem.

Yeah, but use the main OS in virtual machine is a new big problem.

I don't like the dock system in OS X, the lack of library for development, and complicated of uninstalling application.

Macbook just for testing purpose in my work, actually i plan to do triple boot with Windows too.


dual boot, efi, elilo, slackware
