Issue 66: Distorted Video in Help File

Reported by Ryan McKee, Apr 9, 2011

I seem to have found a bug or video glitch in your branch of 
Chameleon 2 RC5 r750; here is a photo of the issue, taken from my 
iPhone . 
I seem to experience it at the last of the "Help" option 
(scrolled all the way down). The text is all gibberish with lines 
through it in just a band of a section of the help. Also, I noticed 
the Chameleon version and Kernel version no longer show on the 
screen, how can I re-enable them or get them back? I am running a 
triple boot setup with; Mac OS X (Snow Leopard 10.6.7), Microsoft 
Windows 7 (Ultimate Edition), and Linux Mint 9 (Isadora). This is 
all taking place on a MSI Wind U100-420US; 1.6GHz Intel Atom 
Processor N270, Intel GMA950 GPU, 945GSE+ ICH7-M Chipset, upgraded 
RAM to 2GB, upgraded hard disk drive 500GB, Realtek RTL8187SE 
Wireless LAN Adapter (stock), and Sentellic Trackpad (also stock) - 
(my only computer). You can get more system specifics at
Note: I changed the default theme back to the RC4 default theme.

I upgraded Xcode and downloaded the Chameleon 2 RC5 r752 and 
recompiled and installed; hopping this would fix the issue. 
Rebooted, and still experienced the same issue! What is causing 
this? Is it just some rouge code found in the help file?

It's because the line length of one or more of the lines in 
BootHelp.txt is longer than the defined width for the particular 
theme's infobox_width.

So either the BootHelp.txt file has been changed, or the theme 
you're using needs the value in the theme.plist changing.

I fixed it for the Chameleon default theme when I spotted it 
previously. For reference, see

Thanks for the info blackosx. I'll fix it in chameleon correctly 
(that is, so that lines that overflow don't cause this issue) when I 
get some time.
