MacBook Pro 10,1 (Mid 2012) Installation

Tue Mar 06, 2018 6:45 pm

Hi there,

I've been trying to install Solus on my MacBook Pro 10,1 (Mid 2012). After receiving the black screen and cursor issue, I've had some success following the steps here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7632&p=22770#p22702

I've appended to the end of the grub line, replacing 'quiet splash' with:

Code: Select all

nomodeset nouveau.blacklist=1 3
Which allows me to get to a login prompt. I then login and unload nouveau:

Code: Select all

modprobe -r nouveau
Get the Nvidia drivers:

Code: Select all

eopkg ur
eopkg it nvidia-glx-driver
Load the Intel drivers:

Code: Select all

modprobe i915
Then try to boot graphically with:

Code: Select all

/sbin/init 5
This is where I become stuck, as the graphic installer does not start. I was wondering if anyone knew where I'm going wrong or what command I should be using to launch the graphical installer.

Thank you :D
