Funziona grazie

this is my Extra folder
To change com.apple.Boot and SMBIOS I used "BBEdit" (force the permissions of the file without moving from
folder)



Disk Utility repair permissions does not work very hard ...

I reinstalled BSD.pkg but malfunctioning
What is wrong?

ciao


Apparently there was a problem with installing from Leopard. Try the new guide.

Luckily, Apple sells Snow Leopard at a more than reasonable price. Don't pirate what you can get for cheap. :(

Boards with Realtek ALC888 audio codecs requires a different DSDT.aml and a different LegacyHDA.kext in /Extra. Let me know if you need this.


This would be great!

Thanks if you do:)

I'll put it in but I have no way of testing. Will you help?

If you run the current standalone version it will create a dsdt.dsl file. Could you attach this to a post in this thread so I'll have something to test against? Also, what MB do you have?

Naturally, you shouldn't use the current DSDT.aml

I've added the ifconfig bonjour patch. Guide updated.

Bonjour should now work with both the 32 and the 64 bit kernel. I still recommend using the 32 bit kernel, though.

If you wish to upgrade, just run the new installer. This will remove RealtekR1000.kext from /S/L/E. You'll need to add your EFI-strings to /Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist again.

I ran your installer for my initial setup then manually updated to Chameleon RC3. Will running your installer again change my current Chameleon installation?

In what way will it change it? (I kind of like my Chameleon setup? :), e.g., I have a custom theme installed, custom apple.com.boot.plist )

I don't think it will overwrite it, but make sure to back up :)

EDIT: your Boot.plist will be overwritten.

I haven't delete my first installation yet, do you think I can try to overwrite the 64 with the 32 kernel w/out reinstall everything again ?
Thanks

The standalone generator should work in 10.5.8 as well.

I don't know. Mine looks like that as well when it loads but it then goes into the Chameleon main screen. Do you have a SATA drive?

It's the same kernel so you wouldn't overwrite it.

Cheers Tseug... works fine on my EP35-DS3P/Q6600/8GB RAM...
Have just Carbon-Copy-Clone'd my "Snowy" volume (complete with Tintin's dog as the icon :-) and am about to do the 10.6.1 update. Still 32-bit mode for now, will give 64-bit a lash later.

Many thanks again and if you're ever in Barcelona, I'll get you a few cervezas..!

Edit: 10.6.1 update went without a hitch. Only issue seems to be no MIC in, which doesn't bother me at all... audio out works fine!

My optical drive is IDE

Is that the problem?
