Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 on MacBook Air 2015

Posted by Alexander Todorov on Sun 26 April 2015

Recently I've upgraded to a new MacBook Air (13 inch, early 2015) laptop and luckily enough I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 on it. Here is how to install it.

Prepare boot media

The easiest method is to boot from a USB stick which holds either the entire DVD or just boot.iso. Since I happened to find a 1GB only USB stick I went for the boot.iso. dd if=boot.iso of=/dev/sdb is the only thing you need to prepare the boot media.

Initial boot

Mac boot menu

While computer is booting hold the (left) Alt (Option) key to enter Startup Manager. Wait a second or two before it displays your local hard drive and the USB boot media. Select the option EFI boot to boot the anaconda installer.

Installation

Booting from a boot.iso means I need to use the network to grab the rest of the installation. Because the wireless card needs proprietary drivers I've tried both USB to Ethernet adapter and USB tethering with my phone.

Note: initially I have forgotten to plug in my USB networking card which resulted in bug #1191286. After cold-plugging and rebooting the system everything was fine. Subsequently I don't see any problems with the USB networking card. The bug should be fixed in RHEL 7.2 btw.

Note: I've been using a USB docking station from Plugable for years because their products are Linux friendly. In particular the networking chip is ASIX and there is no problems with drivers for Linux.

UPDATE 2015-05-04: You should also be able to use a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter which is more common for Apple users. See here for more info;

In my case I've wiped out the entire SSD disk b/c I don't care about dual boot. Previously I've heard about anaconda crashing while it tries to detect the Mac OS file system. I've played around with Rawhide before going for RHEL 7.1 and didn't see any problems related to foreign filesystems.

I've gone with the default partitioning scheme while slightly modifing the partition sizes, etc.

Post install

There are several issues which still need attention. I didn't have enough time in the last few days to check these out:

Things which work

  • GNOME 3 sucks big time. Fortunately I was able to install MATE Desktop from EPEL;
  • Wireless card needs drivers; I've managed to compile them myself, see here;
  • Display brightness doesn't seem to work at all. On top of that the display goes full black after suspend-resume. I could barely see anything on it. Fixed here!
  • There is a very annoying boot chime which I have no idea how to disable Fixed here;
  • The onboard keyboard is quite annoying for previous ThinkPad user like myself. Most importantly I need to press Fn to activate the F1, F2, etc keys which I use a lot in mcedit. Fixed here;
  • Output sound works - both speakers and headphones;
  • Microphone works (tested with a hands free device);
  • Power manager was reporting my battery life totally wrong but after a full discharge/recharge it seems to have calibrated itself;
  • ATrpms and EPEL are still missing some codecs for RHEL 7 which means no movies; codecs seem to work now with the NUX Desktop repos. Not sure what I was missing when testing it initially;
  • UPDATE 2015-05-04: I do have a Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter and hot-plug seems to work despite claims that this is not supported in Linux. See here for more info;
  • UPDATE 2015-05-05: Presenting via external projector works with a USB to VGA adapter. See here;

Things that don't work yet

  • UPDATE 2015-04-30: I'd like to remap the Cmd key to the Menu key found in PC keyboards;
  • Camera doesn't work, reverse engineering a driver is in progress;
  • I'm missing the ThinkLight from my X220, however the integrated Broadcom FaceTime HD camera doesn't seem to have a LED flash which can be repurposed for this task;
  • I need a CPU temperature monitor and maybe CPU fan speed needs adjustments;

UPDATE 2015-04-28: Check the list above for links to wifi and backlight drivers and how to disable the boot chime.

UPDATE 2015-04-29: You can find precompiled RPMS in my Macbook Air RHEL 7 repository.

UPDATE 2015-04-30: Added more links and split the list into stuff which already works and stuff that doesn't.

UPDATE 2015-05-04: Added info about Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter.

UPDATE 2015-05-05: Added info about USB to VGA adapter.

Fedora 22 on MacBook Air

I did try Fedora 22 Beta and experienced bug #1215458. Also for some reason the installation hit an error downloading a package and didn't let me retry but forced me to exit the process.

I'll continue posting my updates until the system runs smoothly like it is supposed to.
