The Macbook Pro 6,1 is highly compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 Oneiric.

Ubuntu 12.04 supports most all of the hardware on the MacbookPro-6,1 out of the box. There are a lot of different articles on this install which suggest different things of various complexity, but after reFit is installed, installation is standard.

Install Instructions

  • install reFit

  • boot installation CD for 12.04 64bit version. (booting took LONG time)
  • install
  • installed all updates

All hardware worked immediately.
