  1. Yes, you can install chameleon from linux. as per http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=314 or you can chainload it from grub by putting the file "boot" from the chameleon binary download (not the .pkg) in a suitable palce & calling it as a multiboot kernel, there is some fat32 support in chameleon, but whilst it worked fine for me it hasn't for others, ymmv.
  2. Information about kexts, etc.

    It seems you didn't actually search much, there is loads of information, you just need to make the effort to find it. one example: http://www.projectosx.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=102
  3. pablo101 you are the idiot here: first you post that you compiled and it doesn´t work, then you berate the developer of what is labelled everywhere as an *unfinished driver* (for the hard of thinking that means "It Doesn´t Work Yet") for asking for logs to help him continue? Read (e.g. this ) before spouting rancid bile next time.
  4. MacDrive Eats partition tables. newer versions may be better but I´ll never trust it.
  5. No, there isn't. There are numerous guides on this site and others for slimming down a retail DVD to SL That's not a Retail image, but one that came with a Mac. That's not even english.. try sticking to what you know instead of teaching what you don't. The simple answer to the question above is that you can mount the img and drop the kexts into your install on the first boot after installation (into /Extra would be my preference). once you've done that & installed your bootloader (I like the new chameleon) you can break the cd in 2 & eat it if you want, its job is done.
  6. 10.5.6 Installation Woes

    You didn't even bother to read what I wrote..If you had gone about this properly in the first place you would have wasted less time, learned something useful, and had more time to spend in your real life.. In fact pcwiz's {censored} has cost you time & effort for absolutely no gain, and you're foolish enough to believe this is a good thing. You wouldn't be posting your "woes" here if it wasn't for the kind of {censored} that the poor unsuspecting noob clings to in the hope that it will be a shortcut. No-one wants to make it harder for you, the fact is that installing os x is astonishingly easy if you just spend a little bit of time doing it right from the outset. The packagemakers and gui-pushers are really just in it for their own ego's sake.
  7. 10.5.6 Installation Woes

    This is what happens when you use pcwiz's garbage tools.. If you had spent half as much time learning the basics of the OS you're using as you wasted on installers and pointless GUI tools your system would not only be in better shape, but you'd know all about how you got there, and what to do next time around instead of fumbling and guessing. What's more you'd *know* how to make software update work for you. If you don't want to look under the hood & get your hands greasy, get a Mac.
  8. Onca again you demonstrate that you don't understand what you're posting about: Ubuntu installs a fully working grub (grub-legacy) to the default location *unless* you do the obvious thing & select customise where you have the option of installing it elsewhere (as needed to work with chameleon) or not at all (allowing you to play with bootloaders to your hearts content at a later stage) ubuntu keeps its kernels & initrds in /boot this is fairly common practice in linux & does not constitute a "half-install" please stop spamming your blog full of half-baked assumptions born of ignorance. oh and fwiw, people installing to the EFI partition no longer need to reformat it so many of the complex guides on this site are making it harder for thmslves. just install with fdisk & dd to rdiskXs1 and mount the fat partition to drop in Extra/ & boot.
  9. Well I'm no more off-topic than you are, so I'll just point out that dd.exe is a very differnt beast from the dd you're used to. http://www.chrysocome.net/dd If you can read through that & tell me which notation corresponds to the mbr and the bootsector, (near the middle of the page) I'll be grateful. in the meantime if you don't know how something works, why answer at all?
  10. Can you elaborate on how to use DD.exe for this? I spent days trying to install bootloaders with it & came to the conclusion that it simply cant access the right blocks. Which devices and which notation do you use?
  11. Bush Shoe Incident

    For a fleeting moment, the hopes of the world lay in one man's elbow and the flight of a shoe, only to be dashed when an idiot ducked.
