so I put UB on my mini. single boot, not dual sillyness.

everything is working great except....

when I boot it, headless and keyboardless, the lan is not alive.
it never comes up.
I cant ping it.
however, once I plug in a keyboard, and hit any key at all, i can then ping the mini.

thoughts as to how to make it wake the lan on boot so I can remote in?

Hmm. Haven't done that, so I'm out of my depth. But that is really peculiar. Of course a mini running OS-X doesn't suffer the same, but that doesn't apply here.

So I guess my response is, "I have no damn clue. Sorry meng."

Check to see if your kvmd comes up at boot. I always have to unload it because Virtualbox doesn't like it, but it could be that it never gets loaded unless you have physical keyboard hardware attached.

Other than that - Ubuntu forums is usually a good resource.

thanks v

after a bit more digging and typos because I am tired, I got the answer...

the mac mini is evil.
OSx can boot headless, everything else it seems cannot. go figure.
so... there is a hardware hack, pretty simple.

and it works.  ROFLMAO

so perk, make note if you chose to put anything other than osx on yours.

the reason I am is because I am using mine as a dev box, and want everything running the same OS.
