Ok, I will use this thread to post questions I have during my work on OSX. I am advanced user been messing with windows ,linux and unix for years but I am fairly new to osx. I do have a semi-working hackintosh using chameleon.

 

sometimes we are asked to put a file in something like

/System/Library/Extensions/*.kext/Contents/Resources/ ok to me *kext is a file I see it, how do you access"contents/resources"?

 

 

---edit--

is the *.kext a symbolic link?

how do i enable qe\ci, I do have the proper kext installed, i am at full resolution. however my dock doesn't ripple. When I first installed I did have that feature, so I know my card is capable. I had to re install and haven't been able to get that to work again.

 

another question. every time I log in some bluetooth wizard starts up I have to quit it every time. any way to keep that from happening?

Have a look on the boot disk that you used for install.

 

There will be a com.apple.boot.plist or an org.chameleon.boot.plist file.

 

Compare that to the one on your hard drive.

 

You will probably find you are missing an entry like:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

So reboot, and at chameleon type GraphicsEnabler=Yes

 

If you now have QE/CI, great, just add:

<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

To the o.c.b.plist on your hard drive.

What boot loader are you using? Update to Chameleon 2.1if using an earlier version.

 

Download DSDT Editor, use it to extract your DSDT.

 

Open your DSDT and look for the following:

Scope (\_SB)
{
Device (PWRB)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0C"))
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (0x0B)
}
}

Device (PCI0)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
Name (_ADR, 0x00)
Name (_UID, 0x01)
Name (_BBN, 0x00)
Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized)

 

You need to change Name (_UID, 0x01) to Name (_UID, 0x00) as below

Scope (\_SB)
{
Device (PWRB)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0C"))
Method (_STA, 0, NotSerialized)
{
Return (0x0B)
}
}

Device (PCI0)
{
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))
Name (_ADR, 0x00)
Name (_UID, 0x00)
Name (_BBN, 0x00)
Method (_S3D, 0, NotSerialized)

 

DO NOT COPY AND PASTE DSDT CODE, TYPE IT YOURSELF!!! (I can't emphasise that strongly enough!)

 

Compile your DSDT and save as DSDT.aml (respect the case of DSDT)

 

Put your compiled DSDT in /Extra

 

Then boot with:

GraphicsEnabler=Yes -v

 

If you can't boot, try with

DSDT=none -v

To ignore the DSDT

Device (PCI0)

{

Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0A08"))

Name (_CID, EisaId ("PNP0A03"))

Name (_ADR, Zero)

Method (^BN00, 0, NotSerialized)

{

Return (Zero)

}

Method (_BBN, 0, NotSerialized)

{

Return (BN00 ())

}

Name (_UID, Zero)

Method (_PRT, 0, NotSerialized)

{

If (PICM)

{

Return (AR00)

}

Return (PR00)
