Cham merging com.apple.Boot.plists??
« on: April 06, 2010, 01:42:53 AM »
So I have chameleon RC3, or PC-EFI v3... I can't remember which...

I have in my /Extra folder this com.apple.Boot.plist:

Code: [Select]
<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>GraphicsEnabler</key>
<string>yes</string>
<key>PciRoot</key>
<string>1</string>
<key>GUI</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>-x32 arch=i386 dsdt=dsdt.aml -pci1</string>
<key>Theme</key>
<string>Default</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>8</string></dict>

But in my /L/P/SC folder, I have another com.apple.Boot.plist:

Code: [Select]
<key>GUI</key>
<string>y</string>
<key>Kernel</key>
<string>mach_kernel</string>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>-x64 arch=i386_x64 dsdt=dsdt.aml -pci1</string>
<key>Theme</key>
<string>Default</string>
<key>Timeout</key>
<string>8</string>
<key>device-properties</key>
<string>[i]long hex string[/i]</string>

Now, my understanding of chameleon, is that it will use the boot.com.apple.plist in the /Extra folder, and ignore the other.  This would seem to be true, because it is booting into 32bit mode, as expressed by the first plist.

However, if I delete the second com.apple.boot.plist in the /L/P/SC folder, or remove the hex string, then when I boot I go no accelerated graphics...

Could somebody please explain this mystery to me?

Also a few other boot plist questions:

Which bootloaders use the Pci=1 syntax, and which uses <key>PciRoot</key>
Which bootloaders use the -x32 syntax, and which uses arch=i386?
With the graphicsenabler, does it matter if I use 'y' or "yes"?
