Macbook pro (MBP 8,x) - it seems I have to wait for update of final Fedora 15.

MacBookPro8,1: 13″
MacBookPro8,2: 15″
MacBookPro8,3: 17″
These machines have a new keyboard/trackpad assembly, the WellSpring 5. You’ll need a patched kernel or a kernel recent enough that it has the USB HID quirks for the new assembly; that’s 2.6.39-rc material.

And I just got my brand new MBP 8,1

quoted from: http://mac.linux.be/content/pommed-138-out

kernel-2.6.38.2-9.fc15.i686.rpm 31-Mar-2011 08:06 22613876
kernel-PAE-2.6.38.2-9.fc15.i686.rpm 31-Mar-2011 08:09 22709700

You can install a super recent kernel like this one:
Quote:
kernel-2.6.39-0.rc7.git6.1.fc16.src.rpm 14-May-2011 17:09 81M
from here:
http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/pa...t6.1.fc16/src/

by building it from source doing the steps in post 6 of this thread:

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=260585

(of course substituting the newer kernel src rpm in all the right places)

The real issue is are the 'usb quirks' so bad you can't get the keyboard to work enough to do those steps, get it installed and
rebooted?

Thank you very much!!! I haven't test it yet. Because lack of CDRW, I always test with LiveCD on USB stick. But it wouldn't boot any way whether use uniboot with rEFIt/BootCamp, or use livecdtool (on Fedora) with rEFIt/BootCamp.



I just got a CDR, and waiting Fedora 15 Final LiveCD.

Thanks again for your reply.
