Triple Boot goal: OS X, Gentoo Linux, and Windows 7

Posted 05-16-2010 at 10:26 AM by Seph64

I am intending to install Linux on this Mac Mini of mine.

Well, actually it's installed. So it's already coinciding with OS X and Windows nicely.


90 or so GB for OSX
23GB for Linux
40GB for Windows

Not a lot of options for a 160GB drive anymore. I might purchase a bigger hard drive later, of course I will also need the proper tools to open the mac up. I saw how it is done.

One of the problems I ran in to though is a DNS lookup problem. It takes about 10 to 15 seconds to resolve domain names. So file downloads for emerges are tedious because of the DNS lookup issue.

Another problem is that the login prompt takes a few seconds to pop up after the system finishes loading the startup scripts. The last script to load is always "local", and after that, I have to wait til the system gives me the login prompt.

And lastly, I need to figure out how to get the audio device on the Mac to work. It loads up the audio driver, but no sound outputs. I made sure to unmute everything. But I guess there's still some steps to do.

Aside from those issues, Linux works nicely.
