Formatting a partition with Disk Utility on OS X and letting the Ubuntu installer do the rest of the work is a simple and straightforward approach. The Ubuntu installer also takes care of configuring and installing the bootloader. Theoretically, you could boot Linux with only Grub-EFI, as the Linux kernel supports direct EFI boot. But this requires a lot on ...
If you want to prevent Macbook going from sleep mode into standby mode (dump RAM to SSD) too soon, you could also adjust by changing pmset's standbydelay value. sudo pmset -g to check current setting sudo pmset -a standbydelay [value] to update settting But instead of changing pmset configuration (which affects your battery life), try using the original ...
You shouldn't directly open the ISO file in OS X: it's not needed. You should simply convert the .img file to an .iso file and copy it to the USB stick using dd, following these instructions. Then restart your Mac pressing the Option key, and choose the live USB option.
I had the same exact issue with my MacBook Pro and I have rEFInd installed as well. I resolved the problem disabling the autopoweroff option with pmset. See this answer.
You can download a live or an install disk image and copy it on an USB drive. Just look at these instructions from the Debian installation guide. For more detailed instructions, read the Ubuntu guide for creating a live stick. The procedure is identical; just do that with the Debian image.
I had a sucessful live USB boot on a MacBook Pro mid 2012 with Ubuntu 13.04. I just followed the official tutorial. Try uninstalling rEFIt. The live boot doesn't require it: just press alt at boot and select the live USB. If you still have problems, I recommend you the rEFInd boot manager, which is currently developed (rEFIt is abandoned). Before you ...

Here are some conceptual answers that would work, and potentially can be expanded to launching any app in any virtual machine space, although insecurely. Method 1. Drop boxes. Each VM has a shared directory from the host machine. This directory must be publically writeable. A script on any machine can write a file to any of these directories. Each VM ...
rWhen you kill iTunes, do you kill iTunes Helper too?: $ ps -cef | grep iTunes 1001 7878 243 0 8:30AM ?? 0:05.38 iTunes 1001 7882 243 0 8:31AM ?? 0:00.03 iTunesHelper If you can't kill iTunesHelper also, you will need to add "intr" to the mount options. Having done that, you should be able to stop processes waiting on IO from ...

As noted by OpenStep developers: Apple has been making available certain drivers in binary form under the Apple Binary License. Without these, Darwin in its current form would not be usable (in fact, not even the XNU kernel could boot).
From Ubuntu: This is due to a bug (of sorts) in the package used to create the Ubuntu ISOs Since 11.10, Ubuntu ISOs have been "hybrid", meaning that the ISO can also be written bit-for-bit to a USB device to make it a working Live-USB, without having to use StartUp Disk Creator, UNetBootin, etc. Note that this "hybrid" is different from the OS X/Disk ...
If you have an apple tv it works very well with openelec 3, even better with a Broadcom BCM970012 or BCM970015 Crystal HD card fitted, but this way you lose the wireless network unless you add wireless usb, wich is well supported i openelec. I have RPi also and prefer the ATV as dedicated openelec media server and the RPi as my little linux box, which is no ...
