Will be installing Slackware on this mid-2012 MacBook Pro. Any suggestions?
 
Hello! I'm dustboxednorth. This is my first post to the LinuxQuestions forums. I'm a music producer and digital artist with much interest in *nix systems and such. I started using Linux about seven years ago when my hard drive failed and I didn't have any official Windows reinstallation media. For a while, I, of course, hated it. However, after a while, I began to enjoy the customizability and extensibility of the Linux platform as a whole.

A few weeks ago, I inherited this 13" MacBook Pro (mid-2012) from a family member. As a casual Linux user, I've been considering installing Linux on here. I come from a background of using Debian, but I've started gaining interest in what Slackware has to offer, as it boasts being the most Unix-like compared to other distros. As I've never installed Linux on a MacBook (or any Apple-product, for that matter), is there anything specific to Apple products that I must do to get the most out of my system, or will it be relatively vanilla as far as a Linux install goes (i.e., special firmware, dual-booting, etc.)?

Greetings and welcome to the LQ forum dustbox. :hattip:

As far as a suggestion for your Slackware situation, you may want to ask you question in the Slackware thread. Here is the link:

Happy computing!
