ok so the chipset is an AR5418...
to switzerland? surely not
i am not buying it now so i will check out if someone has it running.
and moving to Switzerland??? i am not sure about that, they are even stranger then the people form Austria.
i think even it is "illegal" nobody in the shop would notice that there is some illegal code, because you dont have to show them every program
do you really make it addicted to buy a macbook ONLY when bt is running?
Has anyone tried an install of BT3 on the HDD of a MacBook Pro? I have a Core 2 Duo 2.4GHZ 15" with 4GB RAM.
I have successfully boot my MacBook on a Backtrack 3 beta live cd.
Airport card seems to work, but i didn't try to connect to an AP.
The only little problems seems to be about keyboard, which is not reconized as a "MacBook/MacBookPro" keyboard. However you can set up your keyboard as a PC Intl keyboard, and you will be able to use it nearly as usual.
I'll update the wiki about MacBook as soon as i can.
P-S: This time, no problems of login and f**** double keystroke/keystroke echo (rroott...), so:
Thanks to developpers!
I didn't had time to look into it in detail but I have the following troubles:
I was not able to use the keyboard to select a BT version. This also happens with Ubuntu, so not a BT issue I guess. I Have installed the rEFIt boot manager.
Rest of the boot worked and I could login on the terminal. But fluxbox or KDE didn't load. xconf worked, but didn't change a thing
the keyboard worked and I selected the vesa mode. worked. Have you got any idea on the keyboard issue?
and kismet didn't work out of the box. I'll have a look into that this weekend.
I'll keep trying to localize the problem. I got the ati core2duo, mac book pro w/2.16GHz, Here my lspci:

Do you use a USB-keyboard? If so, do you have USB legacy support enabled or disabled in your BIOS?Alright, this keyboard problem is strange. I tried it three or four more times. One time the keyboard worked during the boot process. The other time I couldn't choose an boot option, as described in the post above.
