Restructure the documentation on Mac support
- Create a single page called “Using Tails on a Mac” on (doc/first_steps/mac) to centralize all the information we have about how Tails works on Mac.
- Insert it in the documentation index between “Upgrading” and “Start Tails”.
- Link it from “Start Tails!”.
- Rename the “Apple hardware” section of the “Know issues” page as “Mac” and limit it to a single sentence pointing to “Using Tails on a Mac”.
- Move the page “Manually installing onto a USB stick for Mac” under “Using Tails on a Mac” in the documentation index.
- Add an introduction to “Manually installing onto a USB stick for Mac” that summarizes its limitations and points back to “Using Tails on a Mac”.
- Remove the end notes listing Mac models in “Manually installing onto a USB stick for Mac”.
- Ask for review of our page to people knowledgeable about Mac.
- Ideas of content for the page “Using Tails on a Mac”:
- Disclaimer, we don’t know much about Mac. Please report your findings.
- Link to the online list of Macs per generation and firmware version.
- Tails does not work on PowerPC.
- Try burning a DVD first and see if this works.
- If you don’t have a DVD try a USB stick installed using Tails Installer. Create that from a PC if needed.
- Install rEFIit and explain how to desinstall it.
- On some models, a USB stick created with Tails Installer works with rEFIt.
- Mention that “MAC USB Installer” and others are likely not to work either. Otherwise please tell us. If it work, be careful as it might break some security features.
- You can try the instructions for “Manually installing onto a USB stick for Mac” if you really want a USB stick but it will be without persistence.
