Right I used this guide : Installing Ubuntu on PS3 - PSHomebrew but the problem is the damn thing is to slow to even get the kernal patches installed.
Is there anyway to install another GUI before actually entering the desktop? Otherwise I might as well play 100 games before I can even attempt to get the interface to fully respond.
Don't use the pshombrew ubuntu images. Use the link george posted in the first post. If you use the ubuntu .img files you wont be able to download any updates. The only thing from the pshomebrew link you should do is the swap file mod. But even after you install the ubuntu 10.10 from the link it will take forever to get to the log in screen just wait it out, it's the price we have to pay until you get grafs kernel going.
But first thing you should do when installing georges ubuntu is opena terminal and type
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lxde (for a light weight gui)
then sudo apt-get install lxdm ( for a lightweight log in environment)
I also like to install BUM to remove any unnecessary start up items, but make sure you read what they are so you know which ones you need.
sudo apt-get BUM
another good cleaning util for old packagaes/orphans is
sudo apt-get autoclean
Then of course remove any unnecessary programs in ubuntu software center
then you should be on your way
before you log into a desktop enviro...press ctrl alt and f1...log in as normal then type sudo apt-get install lxde...if it fails type sudo apt-get update followed by sudo apt-get upgrade then retry installing lxde...once its completed type sudo shutdown -h and it will shut down your ps3 (it may hang at yellow light but just pull power and reboot) then reboot linux and get to log in screen from there type your user name and then at the bottom slect lxde and away she blows =)

Cannot Map Lv 1?? –
Hey read the whole thread and while I read some stuff that might have to do with my problem didnt see the exact error. I have a 3.41 Hermes CFW V4D PS3 all my backups work great. If it is needed I can also run in jailbreak mode with Hermes v4b hex. Here is my problem. I have been trying to install AsbestOS 1.5 or BootOS 2.1. At first I could not install these .pkg. I reasoned this was because they were signed for 3.55. I used Repkg to get them to run on 3.41. Now the pkg install but for both I recieved the following error:
AsbestOS/BootOS installer Error code -2147418099 calling lv1_undocumented_function_114 Cannot map LV 1 Press [X] to exit.
I am honestly very careful about what I do with the system. I did edit some files in Dev_flash to enable the creation of a PS2 memory card. Is that what is causing this? How do I fix? Additionally I read you have the latest files running on 3.41 so I take it what I am attempting should work? No need to move to 3.55? If anyone can help much appreciated. I find other users with same issue so it is not just me...
xPreatorianx, You might have to format the HD on a PC using gparted. I formatted mine to ext3 as the master boot record. Used the whole external 500gb hd ) If that doesn't work then hook it back up to your ps3 and format it on there using gparted. I didn't have to set any boot flags or anything, it became readable as soon as i formatted and powered ubuntu on. Even if your unhappy formatting the whole drive you can always go back later on and set up different partitions, but right now i'd just try getting it running and work from there.
I don't understand why people are still on 3.41. Is it better cfw then kemeaw 3.55? cause I've honestly had 3.55 since the day it was released and have never ran into any problems with it.

Been reading up on it and I guess I need some sort of lv1 patch/edit to the file to allow "lv1_undocumented_function_114" to map lv2 now thing is how would i go about doing that...
When i run the patcher, I get an error : cant access tty; job control turned off?
Any ideas? Using enter fat 32hdd ( It is partitioned half ntfs, half fat 32)
NVM got it working, just moved everything to internal >=( LOL. Also is it possible to hook up a ntfs drive while running linux?

Will a liveCD work? I tried a liveCD and it won't find the USB HDD. Otherwise I guess I'll hook up my server.

Also I can't format the whole disc. I have data on their and it is really valuable. 430 Gigs IIRC and I don't have enough space on my other drives to transfer it all over. So I'm in a pickle.
I'll try tonight or sometime this week though and report back.
