I have installed rEFIt (version 0.8!) and Ubuntu in a
dual boot configuration on a mac-mini (Core Duo Mac
mini: 1.66Ghz: 2GB Ram: 60GB HDD: Mac OS X 10.4.7).

Evertything works fine except that nothing happens when
the video cable is disconnected. Switching to the text
based mode did not help.
Could this feature be added in future version? Many
thanks in advance.

    It is not clear if and how this could be done in software by rEFIt. Note that rEFIt has no control over the hardware handling done by both the EFI firmware and the BIOS emulation.
