#1983370 Chimera question

Posted by rlf on 09 January 2014 - 07:14 AM

Yes and no.  Different versions of OSX can have different icons (Lion, Mountain Lion, Mav, etc) but otherwise it is pretty much determined by format of the partitions (FAT, NTFS, EXT3, etc) except there is determination of OpenBSD and FreeBSD. You can review the slightly out of date theme guide on this page: http://forum.voodoop.../board,7.0.htmland the default icons for Chameleon in the repository: http://forge.voodoop.../themes/default

 Modify the file "org.chameleon.Boot.plist" found in the /Extra folder. Add a section like this: <key>Hide Partition</key><string>partition1;partition2</string> The two partitions you are hiding are separated by a semi-colon and can be identified in one of three ways: hd(x,y) where x is the number of the disk starting with zero and y is the number of the partition starting with 1like <string>hd(0,3);hd(1,2)</string> OR a UUID - in Disk Utility perform a Get Info on the partition you want to hide and record the UUID numberlike <string>C59780FD-929A-3962-9BFC-2CFEC82B7B35;4F70CD4D-CEAC-39B2-B64C-CEF12C375F3D</string> OR "name of partition in quotes"like <string>"Win 8";"System Reserved"</string>

#1970281 Ethernet card Marvell Yukon 88E8056 - 10.9 - After two weeks I need help

Posted by rlf on 21 November 2013 - 12:12 PM

I looked through your log file and there is not a single word in there about ethernet.  Nothing.  If you didn't mention it, there would be no evidence that it even existed. But there are a lot of "problems" noted in the log.  And for a fresh installation, you have a lot of "{censored}" installed already. You have several things related to hardware sensors.  You have sensor kexts in FakeSMC.kext.  You have the Bresink monitoring package (with kexts) and you have iStat.  None of them are playing nice. You have things like Private Eye, Radio Silence, TechToolPro that are not working.  Mail and Calendar have problems.  iCloud and iMessages have problems.  Plex, Adobe Acrobat and Google Update don't have problems but log a lot of items. There are problems trying to install things in your upper menu bar - Clock and Volume.  If this is the log of a failed boot, why are menu items even involved? My suggestion - find...

You need the modified kernel to get around the reboot problem.  Then you will have a graphics problem.  The Nvidia card will not work.  You need the integrated GPU.  In another forum, a user had to physically remove the Nvidia card through the Ultrabay in order to enable the onboard HD 4600 GPU.

Make sure you have booted into the Installer, then answered the language question, then go to the Utilities menu and then select Terminal. Be sure you type spaces where needed:cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/NullCPUPowerManagement.kext /Volumes/"OS X"/System/Library/Extensions/cp –R /System/Library/Extensions/FakeSMC.kext /Volumes/"OS X"/System/Library/Extensions/

Posted by rlf on 05 November 2013 - 05:02 PM

Well, Uni-beast normally installs FakeSMC.kext but it does not seem to be working. You might try making a different installer.  You can go to "Downloads" on this forum and use Pandora.app or you can follow this guide: http://www.insanelym...-install-guide/

#1962753 Can't copy large files to SMB shares, Too large for filesystem

Posted by rlf on 02 November 2013 - 10:07 PM

Mavericks uses SMB2 which has some problems.  Instead of setting up your link as smb://someip/somevolume set up your link as cifs://someip/somevolume This forces Mavericks to use SMB instead of SMB2.

Posted by rlf on 01 November 2013 - 07:29 PM

You mention "this kext", but you don't tell us what kext that is. I have Marvell 88e8056 ethernet.  I use the vanilla ethernet kext (IONetworkingFamily.kext) along with a special injector kext that injects the id for 88e8056.  I've used it for a long time and it has worked on Lion, ML and Mavericks. Just install the injector kext to /S/L/E   88E8056 Injector.zip 3.89KB 309 downloads

Haswell is not compatible with 10.8.2, only 10.8.5 and 10.9.x While setting up OSX, always boot in verbose mode -v (you should see text, not the Apple) Check these BIOS settings:  Limit CPUID Max - DisableExecute Disable Bit - EnableIntel Virtualization - Enable

#1958366 Need help installing OSX Mavericks :/ (ASUS P8Z68-V/i5 2500/Radeon HD6950)

Posted by rlf on 25 October 2013 - 05:33 PM

Everything looks fine.  It should be working. The only thing I can suggest is try making a smaller partition for the installer.  When the instructions say to create 1 partition, instead, create 2 partitions.  The first one about 20 GB for the installer and the second one 1.98 TB and leave it blank.  "Restore" BaseSystem to the 1st partition, add the files needed and install Chameleon.

Ethernet - read the following post and the posts after it: http://www.insanelym...1085/?p=1948128 GTX660 - besides GraphicsEnabler=No, you often need to specify npci=0x2000
