Hi all translators,You can help us to translate the Chameleon Project.You need to have gettext utilities installed.You can install them :* With MacPorts or Finkor* With the package http://dl.dropbox.com/u/112112/Chameleon.Dev/gettext-0.18.1.1.dmgYou need to change your ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile to add the path to the utilities:# MacPorts Installer: adding an appropriate PATH variable for use with MacPorts.export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH# Finished adapting your PATH environment variable for use with MacPorts.# MacPorts Installer: adding an appropriate MANPATH variable for use with MacPorts.export MANPATH=/opt/local/share/man:$MANPATH# Finished adapting your MANPATH environment variable for use with MacPorts.You must also have a PO editor like Poedit: http://www.poedit.net/download.phpThe files to translate are in package/po directory. Open them with your PO editor and translate <img src='http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/public/style_emoticons//biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />.If you want to add a new language copy the package/po/chameleon.pot to po/$lang.po where $lang isthe new language you want to add. Example to add belgian language:# cp package/po/chameleon.pot package/po/be.poNow you can start translating the new po file with your PO editor

 

Pls translate/complete it.

Best bootloader I've used. Boots everything easily and fast!

If you install it to a flash drive it will easily allow you to boot the drive from the BIOS.

That's the best. Simple to use and configurate. All thanks for Chameleon Team.

----------------------------------------

This version using Yosemite sometimes freeze and loose second HDD partitions when restart/sometimes not working keyboard. Necessary to force restart.

Appears as Nvidia issues (mine is a GT640)

How does one make use of the now embedded HDAEnabler? Is there a new boot flag?

Yep!

From the BootHelp

HDAEnabler=Yes|No    Automatic device-properties generation for audio controllers.
    HDEFLayoutID=<value>     Inject alternate value of layout-id for HDEF (HEX).
    HDAULayoutID=<value>     Inject alternate value of layout-id for HDAU (HEX).
So for activate the HDAEnabler use Yes (Like the GraphicsEnabler)

then if a HDEFLayoutID is present the Enabler use it... if not the default HDEFLayoutID will be used...

 

Example... this is for my config (org.chameleon.boot.plist)

...
	<key>HDAEnabler</key>
	<string>Yes</string>
	<key>HDEFLayoutID</key>
	<string>63000000</string>

Thanks for your reply! Could you please point me in the right direction in regards to an HDEFLayoutID list? Having trouble finding info regarding ALC898 and what ID I should use.

I put some short example there isn't a list!

Note if HDAEnabler is set to Yes and a HDEFLayoutID isn't set the injector set by default the layout-id 12 0C000000 (HEX)

otherwise for the HDAULayoutID (If a HDMi controller will be found) and a HDAULayoutID is not specified the default id is set yo 1 01000000 (HEX)

 

some correspondences:

 

layout-id = 1
001 (0x01, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00) so... HDEFLayoutID=01000000
 
layout-id = 2
002 (0x02, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00) so... HDEFLayoutID=02000000
 
layout-id = 3
003 (0x03, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00) so... HDEFLayoutID=03000000
 
layout-id = 12
00C (0x0C, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00) so... HDEFLayoutID=0C000000
 
layout-id = 32
020 (0x20, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00)
 
layout-id = 40

layout-id = 65
041 (0x41, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00)
 
layout-id = 99
063 (0x63, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00) so... HDEFLayoutID=63000000
 
layout-id = 269
10D (0x0D, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00)
 
layout-id = 387
183 (0x83, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00)
 
layout-id = 388
184 (0x84, 0x01, 0x00, 0x00)

it work fine (for me) but it seems to be principal culprit for not to be able to update on iwork and ilife, posts on this forum sugest this idea.
