YDL Install help, total n00b
As the title suggests, I'm a total n00b at linux. However, I'm trying very hard to learn.... or at least, will be trying very hard once I get the thing installed.
At any rate, I've got the YDL image, the install guide, the otheros files, and a larger HD. Now I'm trying to install.
After I xfer bootloader and the bootloader installer, I'm told to set the default boot to otherOS. I do so. Then I am told to power on the PS3 and insert the YDL DVD. I do.
Then the installation instructions tell me that I am supposed to cycle through 'install' 'installtext' 'rescue' and 'rescuetext'
That never happens. Instead I am told 'loading gelic_net driver...' and I get a screen telling me that it wants to test the CD. It fails the CD test b/c it can't read the checksum. Then the PS3 spits the DVD back out.
If I choose to skip the test, I get the message at the bottom 'Running anaconda, the YDL system installer - please wait...' with the 'loading gelic_net driver...' in the center of the screen. And then nothing. It sits there doing nothing. I've waited a while to give it a chance... am I not waiting long enough? Should I try to get a better quality image? Could it have something to do with the media check failure?
