I'm running Mac OSX 10.6.8, have NO intention of moving to 10.7 or 10.8, since Apple is turning the platform into a "toy" system with too many restrictions.
So, for the past 8 months or so, I've been doing some exploratory "tunneling" to try to escape this---Ubuntu LOOKS pretty good, (running the web-based demo...) and I've even gotten it to install and run in a "virtual machine" [Oracle-VirtualBox].
it cannot "touch" the Mac hardware. So, I have no access to the NVIDIA card I've put into my MacPro, in the hope of accessing it, and it's "CUDA" GPU-parallel processing, to do rendering in BLENDER... Apple "of course" has disavowed NVIDIA, and there are no OSX drivers for NVIDIA cards... Hence my need to "natively" boot LINUX (Ubuntu, or any other "distro" that WILL boot my hardware)...
Does anybody have a working "recipe" on how to get rEFIt to work properly? (I'm a total idiot/newbie with command-line "stuff")
Or, is there a GUI-based "patch" that exists, that I can apply to fix this boot-loader related problem?
