#1865340 New features for Chameleon Preference Pane

Posted by rekursor on 06 November 2012 - 03:41 AM

Sorry to hear that the prefpane crashes in MTL. I gave it a quick look yesterday and it runs in debug mode inside xcode, but as soon as I start it from the apple menu: it crashes. FWIW I am not the only prefpane to crash in MTL apparently with the exact same context (GC forced disabled in MTL prefpane) ... I updated the xcode project and cleaned up some memory leaks in case someone wants to have a look though, and I will keep you folks updated about my progress.

It was second app I made in Obj-C for OS X at all. Some parts, especially older are written "not perfect". ... But if you insist, I can send you source code, so you can see for yourself. Well, the preference pane was my first objc app :lol: I don't ask for anything, but if you are interested into joining the chameleon team, I can add you to the pref pane branch ... I would have tasks for you, like this nice smbios page (mine is minimum, yours is better imho) Now concerning the programming style, it is true that it can become a problem sometimes to maintain the sources but you can always count on help from others to polish it. Think about it : all of us united to produce the best software we can :) Yes, I know ; I'm a hippie ...

../.. @ Rekursor, how can i add more files to the Rescue Boot CD iso? Is it possible somehow during the creation of the CD, or afterwards? Not at the moment, but if you want to hack it here's what to do: You can remove the last rm command in the sh embedded script named cdBootCreate.sh in the Resources folder of the package: edit that file go to the end and add a # at the beginning of that last line starting by rm -rf then run the script from the preferences pane by using the interface and then go back to /tmp/newiso/Extra you should find a Preboot folder that will contain your kexts and other vital files. you could add files (like tools) from this folder and the run again the command from the preference pane, at that time the second generated iso (and all subsequent ones) should contain your files ... -Rek

Hi folks, it's been a while I didn't update my chameleon preference pane open source developments, as many people seem to have difficulty with the open sources to figure out how that works I decided to help again by adding new features like: - new rescue boot disk creation in the Boot Setup panel (old scripts from Lizard were there for a while but not integrated, now it is and it even easier than it was in lizard ...) - new direct edit features for Partition renaming + Partition hiding (visual partition editing in the table view) - New boot information dynamic tooltips on each chameleon boot partition - new AppleSMBIOS Extraction and Parsing feature - completely new partition extractor engine not relying anymore on diskutil redeveloped in objective c from scratch, now partition uuids (as read in OSX) are available. that latest feature is only displayed for info as for today. This is because the chameleon booter uuid format is not compatible for windows partitions with the...
