Hey ..no problem man. Got it!

This is a great little app that's for sure. The odd things is however there is a little message at the top telling me "com.apple.Boot.plist not found!". I look in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/...and there it is. Maybe it's looking for it in the extras folder?

Anywho..I'm running the retail version of Leopard (10.5.8) and I boot from a thumb drive using "ASUS_PQ5_Boot 123"...so maybe there's issues there.

System is a custom build Intel Quad Core 2.33 GHz, 4 GB RAM, PQ5 ASUS Motherboard, ATI Radeon HD 2400.

The other thing is that I've installed the latest version of chameleon (using a dmg) and it says it installed it on my main drive (MacOS partition) but I see no files to be found. THis is something I've need to ask in another part of the forum...but I'm wondering if all this is having some effect on why Lizard can't find my boot.plist file.

Hi,
By default, Lizard is looking in /Extra folder, but you can choose to use the one in /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ in preferences.

Hi, sonotone
congratulations for your app it's fantastic.
I'm using it from the first versions.
Can i ask you if it is possible to add this con.apple.Boot.plist option (or maybe better a custom option field that anybody could fill with not implemented string):

<key>SystemID</key>
<string>5EDDF16C-CB2B-08A1-FB89-xxxxxxxxxxxx</string>

because the version of Chameleon2RC4 that I use is a patched one that with this options fix the problems related to the auto uuid of RC4.
I ask you this because now every time i modify my c.a.B.p with Lizard i need to use textedit to put again the UUID option because Lizards delete it every time...

Well, this is a good suggestion.
I think a good way to achieve this is to create something like a "white list", with 3 or more custom keys/strings fields that users can complete if they use patches.

It should be more "flexible" if new patch comes out, cause lizard don't need to be updated and users are not lost with fields that don't works with official chameleon releases.

Yess! This is the sort of thing I was thinking.
If you want I could help in translate lizard in italian.

Hey sonotone,

Why not implement this like you did for the RAM info in smbios part of Lizard? I mean a table editor for the com.apple.boot.plist.

Cheers

This is a first shot for "custom flags". Lizard should detect unsupported flags with the RC4. You can add more or edit them, like with the smbios memory table (thanks for suggestion trauma )

About translation, you can grab the sources and edit xib files, but some texts are wrote in the code.

It works for me!

Just a side note, using the patched boot it give me error about the chameleon recognition, but it's not a problem.

Hi,
sources on google code are up-to-date.
Just a note about compilation: the helpertool is compiled in the build folder with the app.
You have to rename it "LizardHelperTool" and place it in Lizard's resources folder to get it works.

If you have any question, let me know.

Cheers

ok, thank's now i'll try.
I've made it but i can't find in the main menu the last 2 icon and the string of the last option (install and upgrade).
Also the eye image is missing. And Xcode tells me that Themes.xib is missed (is in red)
Attached here my build and the modded xib.
The Help is not yet integrated (is the LizardHelp folder that need to be renamed?)

EDIT: i've solved the integration of the Help and the eye icon

I've managed to make it work there was some part missed in the main menu.xib

Here you are Lizard 0.60 with italian localization:

Issues are related to nib path. They work when they are in the resources folder and not in langage subfolder.
I haven't read anything about localization yet, so i can't really help you until i read some guides.
