I'm having problems using MOL. I have OSX 10.3 installed on a seperate partiton on my system. It dual boots properly, but when I start up MOL I get this:

Code:
Ethernet Interface 'tun-<tun1>' @ 00:00:0D:EA:DB:EE
ALSA sound driver (device 'default')
MOL SCSI controller registered


    <No SCSI Devices>

    CD   /dev/cdrom       CD-ROM         <read-only>   ------
    Unembedded HFS+ /dev/hda3                       <rw> 20352 MB
----> /dev/hda4 might be a boot-strap partition.
No volumes found in '/dev/hdb'
No volumes found in '/dev/sda'
No volumes found in '/dev/sdb'


>> ==================================================
>> MacOS X Boot Loader 0.9.70
>> Candidate boot volume: /mol-blk@0/disk@0:0
>> /mol-blk@0/disk@0:0,\mach_kernel (3867776 bytes)
>> /mol-blk@0/disk@0:0,\System\Library\Extensions.mkext
>> ==================================================

>> --> Boot loader failure: bootx_startup returned (should not happen)

cleaning up...
Terminating threads...
DONE


It seems to detect things properly but it can't boot. I tried the ppc and ~ppc version, but neither work.

Any ideas?

I've had similar problems; some versions of MOL work with some versions of OS X. Currently, I can't get Tiger to boot in mol but OS 9 works fine. I run OS9 more than Tiger so that suits me fine. For a while, I was having problems logging into Tiger under mol. Some strange error would not let me log in at all, and broke my user's ability to log in when running Tiger natively! I'm running the latest stable version on an iBook G4. The ~ppc version would not work at all for me.

Latest in ~ppc works fine for 10.3 and 10.4 here ... looks like MOL can't find bootstrap or osx partitions.

Have you specified them in the config?

I'm not sure. Actually I didn't change the /etc/mol/molrc.macosx until now. I added this line but it still gives me problems.
Code:
blkdev:           /dev/hda3              -boot

/dev/hda3 contains my OSX volume.

What is this file suppose to look like, or do I need to edit another file?

BTW - I did run molvconfig.

I'm usingmol-0.9.71_pre1-r2 on an iBook G4 12''. I don't have a /etc/mol/molrc.macosx file, but I have a /etc/mol/molrc.osx. I don't think I ever changed this file... Here it is, without any comments:

Code:
include         ${etc}/molrc.video
include         ${etc}/molrc.input
include         ${etc}/molrc.net
include         ${etc}/molrc.sound

ram_size:               96
disable_altivec:        no

blkdev:                 /dev/cdrom      -cd ${cdboot}

ifempty ${altconfig} {
    blkdev:             /dev/hda        -rw
    blkdev:             /dev/hdb        -rw
    blkdev:             /dev/sda        -rw
    blkdev:             /dev/sdb        -rw
} else {
    blkdev:             /tmp/osx.image  -rw
}

autoprobe_scsi:         yes

enable_usb:             yes


enable_pciproxy:        yes

pci_proxy_device:       0001:10:12.0

Ahh I meant molrc.osx. Mine looks very similar to yours, except for the pci_proxy_device line. I tried to add it, but still no change. I'm not exactly sure how to get that number that appears for that line. Could this be the problem? Something tells me it probably isn't though.

Caught me there, I actually changed my molrc.osx file once. That is a line I added that refers to the Airport Extreme, but It is not relevant to your problem. When I get home i'll see if I can discover something more regarding your situation.

I got no line with a "-boot"-flag, only "-rw"s, works fine for me...
(with startmol --vt=11 -X [framebuffer fullscreen and booting OS X])

btw: mol-0.9.71_pre1-r2 and OS X.3.9
