same problem here
Alot of people are having this issue with double characters on MacBooks. Including myself. I went to the SLAX site and found a couple cheatcodes and modified it for BT2
at the boot: prompt enter
bt autoexec=... ; bt autoexec=startx ; bt autoexec=xconf;startx
This is a solution that at least got me into X but it bypasses the login prompt and console and goes directly to X.
I hope we can find a permanent way to fix this because once I was in X the keyboard was reacting slowly as well.
Please fix this problem, because like this BT2 Final is not usable on a Macbook.
I never had this issue with the last beta, even installed on HDD.
Even the cheatcode cant help me because i cannot enter them.
What went wrong the? The beta worked flawless.
I've notice that other recents distro has the same problem before X starts, I've just tested Sabayon Linux 3.3 (Gentoo based)... Very very strange...
I've just discovered that BackTrack 2 works well on the new (still beta) VMware Fusion vmware.com/products/beta/fusion , that allow you to create virtual machines on Mac OS X. I've also tried Paralles but it doesn't works very good and my USB wireless dongle is recognized but it doesn't find any WLAN. With Fusion instead all works well!
Maybe a good hint.
Because in Parallels my Wlan Dongle always crashes the VM.
supported USB dongle
which model / chipset are you using? since my prism 2.5 ashton digital doesn't work with backtrack, i'm looking to get a new one...

It works in Backtrack but i didnt try it in VMware yet.
I have instead a Linksys WUSB54g v4 with chipset Ralink 2570, it works well on BT2.
