    Help with Grub/Filesystem
    Hi All, Hoping someone might provide some insight here. I have a 13 in. MacBook Pro with ReFit installed and I believe Ubuntu 10.04 or whichever distro whose repositories included drivers the late 2010 or early 2011 MacBook Pro. Recently upgraded to OSX Mavericks and shortly after running some update, Ubuntu will no longer boot. ReFit sends me to the Grub Rescue Command line. I realize that these may not be supported here, but I believe my issue is with Grub or my Linux File system. I think I used Ext3 and maybe the Filesystem is corrupt or the Boot loader's config file is broken? Does anyone here have any suggestions for identifying the issue and repairing? Thanks in advance.

    mSata Format
    Wondering how to identify and subsequently format and mount my mSata ssd. I believe that it was given the device name "sg" how can I be sure of this? Once positive, can I use fdisk to format? Board is dq77kb, with three physical PCIe slots with the mSata in the PCIe 6 I believe and of course it doesn't show up as a PCIe device, I believe because the board is presenting it as a Sata device.

What went smoothly I want to get this board because it looks like a stellar system and perfect for Linux. I'm quite curious about the AzureWave WiFi drivers for linux. Thanks for the input.

    ALSA
    I'm currently using Ubuntu 9.04 and I believe that ALSA is the sound server. There is an irritating piece in that, I have to turn the sound all the way up from the command line utility and then adjust the volume from either the applet or the buttons on my laptop, which I don't think work right. Is it possible to turn the sound way down in ALSA and still hear sound without have to turn up ALSA first?

    RE: Radeon HD 4770
    I'm not too well versed with video drivers and X11, but I'll take a stab at this. Could you post the contents of your xorg.conf file?
