  1. Here’s a script I wrote last year for creating font image files for both Chameleon’s and Clover’s GUI. Notes - Clover works best with monospaced fonts, where as Chameleon can use both monospaced and proportionally spaced fonts. - Both monospaced and proportional fonts can be used (for Clover, r3216 and up is required). - While this script does it’s stuff mathematically, sometimes the best results (optically) may only be achieved when making/adjusting the font files manually. Requirements ImageMagick Installing can be done using homebrew Once Homebrew is installed, you can run the following command from the Terminal: brew install imagemagick * Note: There are other ways to install ImageMagick but I've found only Homebrew does it simply with all required delegates. If you choose to install ImageMagick using other means (package installers, compile from source) then YMMV. createFont script Usage: ./createFont.sh -f[path/to/font] -s[size] <options> Help can be displayed using -h option: ./createFont.sh -h Please supply a minimum of the font and size. In this case a PNG image will be generated with the text in white on a transparent background. Options are: -a Alpha transparency for text. Value 0 thru 1 * Some versions of ImageMagick fail to render text with this option turned on. -b Background Colour. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: background defaults to transparent. -c Colour of text. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: text colour defaults to white. Some colour examples: Red: 205,0,0 Dark Blue: 35,43,148 Light Blue: 93,192,244 Bright Green: 91,226,81 Dark Green: 24,135,16 Bright Yellow: 219,221,47 -e Effects ---------------------------------------------------- shading Enable single colour shading effect. shadow Enable drop shadow effect (type 1 fonts only). -f Font. Either installed font name OR full file path. -h Display help. -i List installed fonts available to ImageMagick. -l Leading (Space between text lines) +/-16 (type 2) -r Reduced Character Set (Type 2 only) ---------------------------------------------------- a Do not include ANSI characters (32-127) c Do not include cyrillic characters. -s Size in pixels. Expects value between 6 and 255 -t Type ---------------------------------------------------- 1 Font type for Chameleon (Default). 2 Font type for Clover. -o Disable optimisation of final image using pngquant. -p Padding in pixels. Space between characters (type 1) -v Display version of this script. -x Disable anti aliasing. The script is not perfect and ImageMagick can do way more so if desired, feel free to improve the script but please post any updates here. Examples For a Chameleon (type 1) font: ./createFont.sh -t1 s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image: For a Clover (type 2) font: ./createFont.sh -t2 -s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image Note regarding sizes - Keep font sizes sensible as too large will be unusable. Here are two images, one using 28pt and the other using 16pt . Both of these are too large for ideal use. Note: These are using a Clover revision before 3216 where proportional spacing is not working properly. I will update these images soon. Update: to v0.87 - Added extra glyphs for radio buttons and checkboxes as per slice's request. (Note: Requires font containing those glyphs). - Included the use of imagemagik's X Constant Image option to help overcome Sherlock's issue. Update: to v0.88 - Apply X Constant Image option fix for type 2 fonts, to type 1 fonts. (Thanks for the note cecekpawon. I Finally got to it ). createFont_v0.88.zip
  2. Hi guys, I would like to boot OS X El Capitan 10.11 without loading the GUI (NO single-user mode) -> completely bypassing the Aqua interface (also the graphical login screen if possible). I have found this link: http://archive.oreilly.com/pub/h/348 However I've tried it and it seems that the method described there is no longer applicable to newer versions os OS X (editing /etc/ttys lines). I have also found this thread http://www.tonymacx86.com/customization/124780-booting-os-x-without-quartz-aqua-darwin-style.html . It seems that with the introduction of launchd something changed in the boot process, can some Guru/Developer who knows the insides of OS X enlighten me on this particular issue? I have also another question if you don't mind, how can I log the boot process of the bootloader and the operating system? (Clover) Thank you in advance for your future replies (Hopefully there'll be :-) and for your hard work on this beautiful project! Props to you! P.S. Sorry if it isn't the right section but I couldn't find a better one.
  3. Greetings - I have been handed a Lenovo M90 desktop with the challenge of installing OSX. This is a stock Lenovo desktop machine: - Core 2 Duo i5 660 - Integrated Intel Video controller (64mb - 8086:0042) - SATA Controller (AHCI) - on-board Audio - on-board ethernet (82578DM Gigabit) I am using iATKOS L2, and I can boot to the installer, change options, and the install completes successfully - no issues, no kernel panics, no hangs, and I can even use the utils during install to wipe drives, and get system info. However, on post boot install, I see these issues: BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/..../<Merged.playlist BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCaches/..../Login.playlist ... ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin::start - waitForService(resrouceMatching(AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement) timed out DSMOS has arrived after about 15 mins - IOSCatalogue resetting So here's my general question: if I can get into the installer, and that GUI runs fine, and it can see my HD just fine - is there a way to circumvent whatever issues are occurring here stemming from power management, or video card so I can get to the desktop? THIS JUST IN - I was going to reboot the system and get an image of the BIOS screen, so I pressed and held down power and got this Kernel Panic: You guys know more than - what do you think? Another quick update: I've tried butt-basic installs with no drivers, just main system, and VGA - with the same results...
