no no no, i'm not saying it wont mount, i'm saying it's unmounted. since i'm usuing my external HD which is 500 gb, why bother using the 116 gb or whatever i have on the ps3, ya know? unless it would increase performance.
ok now to grafs kernels lol. un rar'd them, did the dpkg-i thing and just got a bunch of errors, even when using sudo. Then all of a sudden out of the blue the ubuntu software center popped up with a description of grafs kernel and if i want to install it. I think it's only the image one though and not the headers. what the hell am i doing wrong?
screen shot or verbose mebbies?terminal output to see whats going on and i'll guide you thru
Thanks george. i have the two folders of grafs linux kernel on my ps3 desktop. linux image 2.6 blah blah, and linux headers blah.
in terminal i type as per cookie monster:
sudo dpkg -1 linux* .deb (tried with space and without)
dpkg:error processing linux*.deb (--install):
cannot access archive: no such file or directory
Errors were encountered while processing:
any ideas? has to be something stupid on my part like having to put the name of the folders instead of the * or something like that i bet lol.
i thought this may be the problem...thats because your asking it to execute something which doesnt exist...u wanna try
dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.38-graf-e16db48_2.6.38-graf-e16db48-10.00.Custom_powerpc.deb
dkpg -i linux-image-2.6.38-graf-e16db48_2.6.38-graf-e16db48-10.00.Custom_powerpc.deb
Still a bunch of errors George. I'm supposed to have two folders right? when i downloaded the rar i unrared it and have two folders for headers and image. Am i suppose to extract those as well?
What i'm going to try and do ( and lets pray the PS3 can handle it lol) is install gtk-record my desktop so i can save a video file/upload it and that should give you a better sense of what i'm doing wrong.
all u should have is 2 pkg's only no folders...did u grab this one?Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites! , if so you should have 2 .deb files after unrarin...then use the commands i posted first time round
ah no! i have the ones that say graf-8e490! Guess i got the wrong batch! Thank god, cause ubuntu software center isn't installing desktop recorder for soem reason. I'll get those ones and report back :)
Yea i knew it was an "i". Just got the files mixed up i think.
