Hi out there,

I'm very new to gentoo/linux on PPC or even on PPC / Mac :)
First of all I'm very impressed how well linux runs on my ibook - even sleep works (but not the bluethooth stuff after resume).

I have a question about MOL (Mac on linux):
- Is it possible to boot my existing and already installed (preinstalled) version of Mac OS X under MOL without destroying any data?
- Will it boot afterwards on pure hardware?

The sources found by searching weren't that clear to risk my data. :roll:

Regards

Yes -- in fact, this is almost the original point of MOL. :-)

I would offer some advice though -- do not mount the OSX parition under Linux, and do not let OS X, when inside MOL, mount any shared filesystems that are currently mounted under linux.

After reading and editting your /etc/mol files for your configuration, you should be good to go.

Just to let you know: It works very well!

One problem I could not solve yet: the bluetooth mouse is working under mol. But each time I move it, it acts also like an scrollwheel.
For example: moving mouse with menu opened, it scrolls the menu too. :(
