Hi everyone, I've been using Chameleon 2.0RC2 happily for a few months now, but upon reboot today I realized that the com.apple.Boot.plist file in my /Extra/ folder wasn't being loaded. I don't see any errors in verbose mode, but there's no timeout, my "Graphics Mode" setting is ignored, etc.

Does anyone know what would cause this? I tried chmod 755 and chown root:wheel on the file, but it didn't make a difference. Sorry if this has been answered before... I tried searching, to no avail.

Is there any other Boot.plist available in any of the other folders? Secondly, can you post or attach the content of the boot.plist?

Do you have more than one OS X partition on that HD ?
Are all /Extra (fi more than one OS X partition) same or differnent ?
Perhaps RC2 loads an boot.plist from an other partition.

Exactly. I was thinking the same thing. Might be booting from a partition other than the one he is selecting at the bootloader.

My partitions are set up as follows:
Partition 1: Windows 7 (HFS+)
Partition 2: OSX (HFS+)
Partition 3: Data (HFS+)

Originally, Data was formatted as NTFS and I was using NTFS-3G. That is, until NTFS-3G crashed and wiped a bunch of the files off (egh.) So, I reformatted Data as HFS+, and after a few days of use got around to rebooting it and now com.apple.Boot.plist isn't being read. Perhaps, somehow, there is a hidden Boot.plist on the new partition? I think I would've noticed it, but I'll do a search when I get home from work.

I need the possibility to choose different kernels via boot loader (NOT hard-coded into the boot.plist!), like before at the Darwin boot prompt.

How can I do that with the graphical Chameleon? This is a really necessary feature. I would prefer an option to get back down to the darwin boot prompt. Choosing kernels via the GUI would be fine, too, but that option is really important ....

Thank you,
Bugs

[EDIT]: solved thanks to Kabyl: "Just start typing and it will be shown at the bottom of the screen. And you can use Tab to switch b/w GUI and text mode."

Chameleon is obviously ignoring the timeout in the boot.plist, which is very sad, awkward and inconvenient.

Buggs,

I am using Chameleon2-rc2 and the timeout works for me when I chose to use it. However, I have found that in some instances Chameleon will ignore the parameters set in the /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist and, instead, use the kernel name and flags found in the /L/P/S version of the boot.plist.

If you havent already, try setting the value you want in the /L/P/S version.

BladeRunner,

I refined my request, see above, guess I was not clear enough. I was hoping to get back down to the darwin boot prompt via the time-out, that's why I mentioned it. The time-out itself is totally secondary.

[EDIT]: solved, see above

After Hibernation i try to wake my Hack by using "ForceWake=y" cause of sleepimage "being too old" (which it's not). I then get a "Incorrect image signature" Errormessage and Chameleon still won't load the sleepimage.

What does the Errormessage mean and how can i avoid it? I'd really like to use Hibernation.



Go to System Preferences > Security > untick "use secure virtual memory"

Open Terminal, and type:

sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0

hit enter, and type:

sudo rm /var/vm/sleepimage



hit enter, reboot and the message is gone!

Hi. First post here, :( I am having some problems with Chameleon 2 RC2, or so it seems. I am following the instructions in the link below to create a bootable OSx86 partition on my USB stick. However, when coming to the installation of Chameleon (yes, I have chosen the USB stick) the installation process simply halts at "Installing Core - Writing package receipt". What could be wrong?

What also is a little bit worrying is that directly in "HD" (my system disk) I can se "Core.pkg". Is Chameleon trying to install itself onto my system disk instead of the USB stick or what? I have understood that that is no good (if the case).

Link I am following,
