What they are for these flags/arguments?

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have some doubts about these flags:

 

Chameleon.

debug=8

darkwake=0

dart=0

 

Clover.

slide=0

I see that some users use different values. (e.g = slide=50/7/80...)

 

a few that are used Chameleon, are also used in Clover. (e.g = darkwake=0, dart=0)

 

what they do?

 

thanks

slide=0 is for boot.efi so it may be used only with Clover.

The flag mean an offset to load kernel and it is only way to boot by American Megatrend UEFI.

dart=0 in Chameleon may be replace by Clover's

		<key>DropTables</key>
		<array>
			<dict>
				<key>Signature</key>
				<string>DMAR</string>
			</dict>

for eliminate problem with vt-d

Thanks Slice.

You know about these values exactly the same as me from dmazar's explanations.

Some of the flags you listed are kernel flags independent of boot loader, meaning they will also work on a real Mac. Once you know this it will be a lot easier to find information.

 

See for example about the debug flag here:
