Help Wanted. How to install XUBUNTU or YDL to proper HDD-Partition on ps3--namely ps3dd ? Please help me to try Xubuntu on ps3....
Hello Everyone. Long time I used my console with 3.55 Kmeaw FW and did not want to use another FW on my ps3----because everyone is very sure that Kmeaw is very stable and wont brick console.
But I always wanted to use Linux on my Ps3 and the thought of it did not let me to be very happy with Kmeaw but without Linux.
So what I did ?
1.First I installed official 3.55 FW and then through Recovery restored system.
2.Downloaded from here CFW 3.55 22GB to OtherOS++ no SS patches PUP3.55with OtherOS++ from Glevand without SS-patches—22GB Version.
3.Installed OtherOS++PUP and restored through Recovery Menu.
4.Downloaded from here Download oos_tools.7z from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way ---OtherOSTools and from here #4454669 - Pastie downloaded ---- create_hdd_region.sh.
5.Installed all files and now I have PS3Slim with OtherOS Support and with Petitboot on it.
I followed tutorial from here------
So I stopped at the moment where my Petitboot installed.
Now I want to install to my ps3 Ubuntu or Xubuntu or YDL.
I need your help here, because I burned Ubuntu 10.04 with Alternate installer to DVD-Disc---have put in my ps3 and started Petitboot---from there started installation—and installed—but probably to ps3da----so at startup Gameos deleted it because on ps3da not supposed to be Linux---it must be on ps3dd.(Like Glevand once said---Dont mess with gameos and it wont mess with your linux partition... If I could know how install ubuntu to proper partition.)
I found this on wiki:
1. parted /dev/ps3dd
2. mklabel gpt
3. mkpart primary 0 2GB
5. mkpart primary 2GB (the rest of the hard drive here.)
Does anyone know if I have to do it----?
Also this part from ps3devwiki:
chmod a+x hdd_access.sh
kexec -l vmlinuz --initrd of the distro you want to install
Probably somehow by script -- hdd_access.sh changes partions---namely unmounts ps3da--and makes ps3dd look like ps3da---and gives ability to install ubuntu to it--but Gitbrew is down-and it is not possible to download script.... Also as far as I understood---I need trough fstab with help of nano change which partitions Ubuntu mounts at startup in order for it to start---can someone help me with this??????
I spent 4 hours installing Ubuntu and it all gone now...
Does anyone know how long it takes to install Xubuntu with Alternate installer and YDL to ps3 ?
Do not send me to PS3DEVWiki----because it did not help me to much...Like it gave me general information--but did not help to install Ubuntu to ps3dd....
Is it possible to have two Linux Systems on one ps3?
Where is possible to download PUPs from Glevand with more space reserved for Linux?
Does anyone know if Glevand will return to development? If to write him letter to email@example.com -- do you think he will respond?
R04drunner is it possible to install Gnome Desktop2(Gnome-Panel) in Red Ribbon and use there Applets like for example CPU Freq Monitor for changing CPU Frequency ? Also can I install XFCE or KDE Desktop Environment in Red Ribbon Linux?
Also one question:
Why here Red Ribbon GNU/Linux for PS3 - Browse Files at SourceForge.net size of RRrc6 is 491,8MB ---but when I downloaded it---- the size was 469MB? But MD5 is the same----8eb2ae6bf903a24a9b84e2bc1096e96f
r04drunner---I want to put files from RRrc6 to usb-stick----but which files should be there? I extracted some with archive manager from ISO...
I am listing them---if something is wrong or absent--please correct me:
Guys please help me, write step by step how to install Xubuntu or YDL to ps3dd---because I do not know how to do it properly...please help.....
