phrehdd Wrote:As one of the few interested in the Mac Mini 4gig RAM combo, if I am reading the posts correctly -
XBMC/Live should be able to run on the Mac Mini
XBMC normally requires 512mb RAM for the 9400M to normally offload to the GPU
XBMC might offload to the GPU though the Mac Mini only provides 256mb for vid.
Linux might see all 512mb that should be available on the Mac Mini "as is."
Linux may be stymied by Apple's EFI and only get 256mb allocated to video.
Small possibility that OSX plist is hard set for up to 256mb but may be editable.
Am I missing anything here? Is it possible to tamper with Apple's EFI?
Hehe, yes. Two posts below, 4GB ram gives 512MBs of vram under Linux. Sounds like a winner to me.
