Pleaseo upload the modded PC EFI 10.3 or upload the complete modded source (after diff PCIEFI3.diff (netcas ) + modd to RC3 658 Chameleon).
I cant do anything with diff, but i know to do make on READY to compile sources.
At least tell me how to use the diff with my PCIEFI3.diff and the folder Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-src

Thanks


OK! I understand the problem. Get the Chameleon2-rc3 source and unpack it. You will have a folder named Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-src. Copy the diff file into that folder. Then, open a terminal session. Then run these commands.

cd Chameleon-2.0-RC3-r658-src
patch -p 1 -i pcefiv3.diff
make clean
make embedtheme

On the patch command the "-p 1" tells patch to skip the first level of path name in the file name found inside the diff file. the "-i" identifies the patch input file - the diff file. Piece of cake - easy as pie

Open the diff file with text edit and look at the first two lines to see what the file/path names look like.

Hope this helps some :wacko:

Hi there...

What is the advantage of using this rather than netkas 10.3 ?

This worked great for me - EFI now reporting as 64-bit on a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3L. Replaced the "boot" file on top of an existing Chameleon RC3 install.

Thanks!

It's just so those people who have systems where the PCI root is at 0x0 they don't need the kernel flag -PCI0. The netkas 10.3 defaulted to a PCI root of 0x1. This one defaults to 0x0.

Strange. My EP35-DS3L is PCI1, standard PC EFI 10.3. GraphicsEnabler=y works now, so no more EFI string, and my PCI cards display in System Profiler. Are you sure yours is correct with PCI0? GraphicsEnabler=y does not work for me with Cham RC3 or with PC EFI 10.3 with -pci0 flag.

Yep - the PCI0 / PCI1 problem is simple :
Depend of mainboard AND! PCI-E Slot(s) used for GPU(s).
Also if someone has more than 1 PCIe Slot available, all bootloaders with that gpu features will need some PCI0/1 switch, because the default can work on some systems on others not.

Also PC EFI 10.3 makes more changes (bug fixes) to orig. Chameleon RC3. As always, CH RC4 will sure use most of that bugfixes i believe.

Thanks for the grep correction, it saved me some time wondering why the original command was returning nothing.

make
make embedtheme

I used those 2 commands to compile but I lost the PCEFI 10.3 Graphical User Interface. It boots and goes straight to the Darwin list selection view.

I picked up the boot file from Sym/i386/boot. Is this correct?

Also, I have a laptop and -pci0 and -pci1 does not seem to make a difference. In both cases, it boots the exact same way.

some small tips for building.

add THEME=name to your build line ie ... make clean && make embedtheme THEME=bullet to embedd the bullet theme.

add pngcrush to your path ie /usr/local/bin and the png graphics will be optimised before embedding to reduce space used.

bs0d.

Graphicsenabler and EthernetBuiltIn are working fine using PCI0 with an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard onboard LAN and Asus EN7300GT graphics card though they aren't showing at "PCI devices" on System Profiler, does this happen to anyone else?

Pc efi 10.3 works fine for me.
Before I was using GFX strings, but no need for them anymore.
The only reason I tried graphics enabler is because I had a few seconds of display problems when display woke from sleep.

PS: boot file of chameleon RC3 did not work (Ethernet recognized, but not video).
Just swapped it with 10.3 and there it was "OSX86 in all it's glory"

First time I say this (still I often thought about it) but well, good job Netkas :D

Now I'd like to know why RC3 didn't work, is it beacuse of this PCI root thing?

Does your system work? What are you trying to accomplish? In order for someone to help you with what you "should" do we need to know what problem you are having. If you want to know what to put in com.apple.Boot.plist then you could start with reading the Chameleon documentation and then ask a more specific question.
