Hi All!

I installed gentoo and am very happy with it :-)

Now I wanted to run os x in mol.

It generally works except that I can only choose 65... or 256 colors. 256 works fine, 65... doesn't really look good. Maybe it's because my xserver doesn't support this resolution?!

So to be short: My problem is I can use 16Million colors when I boot osx directly, but can't use when I boot within mol.

thanx, chris

Try running MOL straight from a terminal (ie. Not in X). It should run in a framebuffer. If colors work there, you know it's probably your X setup; if they don't, you may have a MOL video config problem, or something.

Yes it works in framebuffer mode now. I forgot to set the fbcon use flag in make.conf.

Don't need to run it in x any more.

AND: It's amazing. Now I can use the stable drivers from the d-link wlan on my ibook in linux, but work as normal with osx in mol.

Thank you gentoo! Thank you MOL!

And all the evil mac people told me I have to use their overpayd airport extreme module 8) .

Have a nice day!
Chris
