have you synced the partition tables in rEFIt first before booting linux? The two partition tables (the mac GPT and the bios one) have to agree somehow...

Hope that helps,

I installed Debian using http://wiki.debian.org/MacBook, and all went fine.
Then, i downloaded from svn the mactel patches, get a fresh vanilla kernel
(2.6.22), applied the patches, compile.
So i adjustd grub to point to the new kernel, and when i reboot, the kernel
starts fine, except for a thing: he cannot mount /dev/sda6 (my home).
When the boot process ends, in fact I see that in /dev I've
only /dev/sda, /dev/sda[1-4], and not /dev/sda5 (swap) and /dev/sda6 (home).

Do I have to apply some other patches?
