Hi all,
I'm new with gentoo. I've just managed to install the base system with kde on my powerbook and for now I try to make mol to run in full screen mode. For this purpose I emerged it with 'emerge mol' and every things seems right. But when I try to start it with 'startmol -X' it tells me something like : I have to configure the video mode with 'molvconfig' but the problem is that I can't find any 'molvconfig' command. The shell just tell me command not found. When I use the command 'mol -X' it works perfectly but I can't change the window size and I can't swicht to full screen mode.
The second issue is the '--linux' option with mol. I have a Debian installed in on partition and I want to know how to set it up in order to run with mol and yaboot.
Thanks

Hi deep

In order to get full-screen mol (and have it build molvconfig) you must have the USE-flag "fbcon" set when you emerge mol.
In /etc/make.conf:
Code:

USE="altivec bluetooth crypt dvdr fbcon ...."


then re-emerge mol:

Code:

emerge mol


You should then have molvconfig...
