install 4.6 Cloud version on MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2010)

All is well apart from 2 issues that I'd love some feedback on;
1. Reboot menu item doesn't work, it just hangs. Must shutdown instead.
2. The touchpad seems hesitant, or rather, it works jerkily. In the end I just attached a mouse. I wonder if one can disable the touchpad.

It is observably slower to get to the desktop; it spends some time at the grey mac boot screen.
Other than that it's great; boring and reliable just the way I like my OS. Thank you to the developers!

Hi ch4lk,

1) use this:

Code: Select all

kernel_parameters= reboot=efi,pci,force
2) and this:

Code: Select all

run_command=synclient TouchpadOff=2
If you provide debug log generated in the wizard (or 'dmesg' command output from SSH) then we should be able to find where the delay is.
If you are booting the "Cloud" from the usb stick then the answer is quite obvious: usb is slower than your SSD.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
