OK, burning to CD-R gives all the options we need (install, expert, ...)
Pressing on install will result in nothing.. it just keeps hanging, nothing happens.
edit: I have a 120gig slim, running 3.55 kmeaw.. used the petit and lv2 patcher from first posting of this thread and didnt had asbestos or something similar installed before.
edit2: tried expert mode with same results
I've had the same hanging issues on a PAL 60gb UK model so will try the alternative iso tonight - interestingly my old YDL disc worked but only allowed complete overwriting of the internal HDD (Yes i tested it LOL!) no options for external hdd's!
hanging issue!! 320 gb ps3 slim ,,,40gb external hdd , ntfs ,, freezes after press install or any other option !! help please doin my head in now ,, also when this happens i have to unplug my ps3 by the mains , wich btw i hate doing!!!
What can i do with this OS into PS3?
THat did the trick george! Need the alternate download for machines with less than 256 ram. Now i see expert mode and am ready to download! Thanks for the help!
lol spoke too soon :( Now it's frozen at Booting expert.....
I notice there is edit, open options. Maybe we are supposed to to edit the installs?
expert: /var/petitboot/mnt/sr0/install/vmlinux initrd=var/petitboot/mnt/sr0/install/initrd.gz (null) file=/cdrom/preseed/ubuntu.seed prio
i have an USB 500 gb external HD ext3 format.
try the "install" option and report back...atm because alot of people are struggling...im making a quick fix which should get you up n running on ubuntu after u download it
sadly i was having some trouble with this as well, used 10.10 ppc+playstation torrent. tried on both cd and dvd, same results. stack dump after each option.
I'm looking forward to your fix you just announced. :)
Thanks George. Same problem though with "install" hear the CD spinning, then it just seems to stop and hangs at booting install...
I even kept it on for a while and eventually the screen just went black.other install options are
