About the new options

SMBIOS

Finally you can specify your smbios.plist location using a device selector prefix like “SMBIOS=rd(0,0)/Extra/smbios.plist”.

VideoROM

You can pass an alternate video ROM image file to the system.

VBIOS

Using this boolean switch, you can control the injection of your video BIOS to device-properties. We got various reports if this switch is really needed to make your graphics device handled correctly by the system.

Someone should probably put together a installer image while the offical one is being made, and can someone explain what setting the VBIOS in the bootloader? if it means a fix to my crappy x1300 mobility card then i will get down on 1 knee and marry these guys!

Well, since I couldn't sleep well I was up late and found this new release. I have installed it and it boots my SnowLeo system just fine. I really appreciate this new release.

I have a problem using the Graphiceenabler option but that is no different than the previous release. I posted a feature request for an enhancement to that option over in the voodoo Projects forum.

This will be great because now I can keep a copy of Leopard and Snow on the same disk.

It's much harder to boot in 32-bit with this new Chameleon RC3.

Regardless of the 32-bit kernel flag I put in Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist, Chameleon RC3 always boots 64-bit!

What I have to do is when the chameleon GUI shows up, I hit Tab, that brings me to the Darwin bootloader. From there, I select the Snow Leopard partition and type at the promt arch=i386. That gets me to boot in 32-bit.

Yep.

Installed using Terminal and it works. It didn't break either my SL or 10.5.8 install.

Can't wait for an official installer package to be released; this sounds amazing!

So if this version RC3 only boot in 64bit, we can have some issues with 10.5.8? I mean I am using the RC2 version and works fine. I am scary to damage my stable system just for a bootloader that is only optimized for SL.

Using it just dandy to triple boot 10.5.8/10.6/Win7, but then again there's little reason to upgrade unless you need to use a newer feature.

I followed the link from Dr.Hurt and used the RC3 installer package. After reboot I don't notice any visual changes during boot. Is it too subtle for me to notice or is it the installer package didn't do anything?

that is because the 32 bit bootflag for PC EFI is "-x32" and for chameleon it is "arch=i386"!!
