I enabled fbcon use flag and re-emerged mol.  I ran molvconfig and set up a
ton of video modes.  

When I try to do startmol (from within X/Kde and without) I get a black
screen with a blinking cursor in the upper left.  Anything I type gets
echoed to the screen but that's it.

Thanks!

molvconfig is only available when you enable the fbcon use flag since it's only appropriate when you're using MOL fullscreen on a virtual terminal. If you don't want to use MOL this way, make sure you turn off the virtual terminal switching in /etc/mol/molrc.video. If you do want to use MOL on a virtual terminal (recommended since it's faster) re-emerge MOL with the fbcon use flag set. - -Joe -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.3 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - http://enigmail.mozdev.org iD8DBQFEXNP1wGq7BLLARfoRApYgAJ9TYBI4bXLQH9xt0qdGJ32c8mKPrACgxWWp lA1Uj5mtcD90RmkqruE/Wsc= =rU/Q -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-ppc-user@g.o mailing list -- No virus found in this incoming message.
