    Chameleon doesn't show FAT32 volumes

    Hi, there's no partition hiding/renaming/etc. keys in org.chameleon.plist. I'm trying Chameleon's latest release, and also some others older releases from 2011. This simple isn't working. Looks like this is an old-time bug. There're other reports, like this one, http://forge.voodoop...eon/issues/212/, or this one http://www.insanelym...2-boot-problem/, but seems that nobody cares. The code for FAT16/32 support is there inside Chameleon, but it looks like it isn't working. I would like Chameleon to show FAT volumes and be able to boot from them, like it used to do in the first versions. If I would like to hide any volume/partition, I would prefer to use the "Hide Partition" key in org.chameleon.plist instead. Any help from any developer? Thank you very much!

    Chameleon doesn't show FAT32 volumes

    I want to boot a legacy OS, in a FAT32 volume that can't be converted. The source code includes references to FAT filesystem, I think this is a bug! Cheers!
  3. Hi there! I'm having a similar problem. Did you find the solution for showing FAT32 volumes? Thanks!
  4. Hi, I would like to know if showing/booting FAT32 volumes is still supported in latest Chameleon releases, because I can't make it work. I tried any possible combination of FAT32 volume type (0x0B / 0x0C), size and even MBR / GUID format disks, and the FAT32 volume/s never show up in the boot selector screen. Looking at Chameleon's theme files and a quick look at the source code (with the minimum programming knowledge I have) seems that it should be supported. Or what would be the point of having FAT32 png icons? Is this a bug or a deprecated feature? Any help welcome! Thank you very much! Cheers!
  5. Hi, I would like to know if showing/booting FAT32 volumes is still supported in latest Chameleon RC5, because I can't make it work. I tried any possible combination of FAT32 volume type (0x0B / 0x0C), size and even MBR / GUID format disks, and the FAT32 volume/s never show up. Looking at Chameleon's theme files and a quick look at the source code (with the minimum programming knowledge I have) seems that it should be supported. Or what would be the point of having FAT32 png icons? Is this a bug or a deprecated feature? If hidding FAT32 volumes is because the GUID disk's EFI volumes, I understand that they're wanted to be hidden, but I guess having a fixed 200 MB size they could be easily identified and discriminated. That way only these small volumes should be hidden and the rest (assuming that there are other FAT32 volumes) could be manually hidden per user's needs with the specific "Hide Partition" argument in the com.apple.Boot.plist file. Any help welcome! Thank you very much!

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Hi, Ok, "all" those files aren't in the main Chameleon build but I found them in the official trunk (source). I guess they're deprecated. I undestand that they're different versions of the boot1 stage loader. Anyway, I was looking for a friendly answer just pointing the right direction where I could find more info about those "new" files. Like boot.sys is still a mistery. Also I was looking about the new keys (and their values' format) that can be used in com.apple.Boot.plist. There're a lot and can't find more information than the sole mention in the BootHelp.txt file. If there's any documentation available I would like to know. Thank you very much. Cheers!

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Hi, thank you for your reply. I already read the included BootHelp.txt (this is the first thing I always do) but the information is very scarce. Any other place where I can find about the way this bootloader is working? (in a different way than the Chameleon RC5 from the main trunk). There're a lot of new options and I can't documentation about them. Also I would like to know what are the different Boot1 versions (I already know the usual ones, but there're a few new) and what's the boot.sys file? BTW I'm also very interested in the way you inject the graphics card, specially the display-cfg method. It looks like it works pretty well, at least I can have mirrored displays that I couldn't have even with NVEnabler. I remember asking you in the Voodoo Projects Dev's patches forum about the implementation of this and your answer was that you implemented it but didn't uploaded it to the repository. Thank you! Cheers!

    AnVAL (ACPI Loader)

    Hi, This Chameleon "branch" project looks very interesting, but it seems I can't find the needed information to understand exactly how it works. I read the first post completely and practically all the 39 pages of the thread, also read its English section of darwinx86.net and still there's a lot of info missing. I would like to know if there's some kind of introduction about this alternative way of injecting the ACPI tables. Or at least a more detailed explanation of each of the com.apple.Boot.plist options (there are many new) and their value format. Also I would like to know what are all those different files in the AnVAL releases that aren't normally in Chameleon releases, like boot1f32, boot1he, boot1hp, etc. Thank you very much!
  9. Oh, ok. I was thinking about Voodoo's released "official" RC4. So it seems that the parts of the guide at 1º post where adds the "PCIRoot=1" are obsolete for the newer bootloaders. Cheers!
  10. Hi, What about changing the PCI Root address to 0 in the DSDT instead of using this key in com.apple.Boot.plist: <key>PciRoot</key> <string>1</string> Something like: Device (PCI0) { Name (_UID, Zero) ... So we make the PCI Root = 0 instead of 1 that Chameleon (and derivates) can't detect. It seems to work ok and no side effects. All my devices are correctly detected inside de PCI0@0 tree. Any word about this? Cheers!

    Nvidia 7600GT on Snow Leopard in x64

    Hi, I just checked the Snow Leopard 10.6.4 nVidia 7xxx series kext (NVDANV40Hal.kext) with "lipo -info" and it has indeed 64-bit code. So, where is the problem really? BTW, the 32-bit performance of the nVidia 7xxx series card in Snow Leo is bad, while in Leo is ok (fluid transitions, etc). Looks like they just barely updated the kext for SL compatibility. Any comment about this? Cheers!

    The spotlight turns to notebooks

    Wrong... Have you seen the benchmarks? The old and new models are very similars in performance. And actually in some benchies the older is better!

    AppleHDA ALC268 Shutdown Issues [SOLVED!]

    Hi, I can confirm that also I have those strange names in the device's lists and the computer not always shutdown completely. So this is "almost" a fix. Cheers!

    AppleHDA ALC268 Shutdown Issues [SOLVED!]

    Hi, No, your issue seems to be something different. The problem we're describing is once you install the Taruga ALC268 patch the computer running Leopard is unable to shutdown normally. Cheers!
