Thanks for the quick reply. So the fastest way is to use the DVD... Too bad I cant boot from DVD since I do not have a memory card, so I cant boot uLauchELF from it. Only way I can boot it is from DVD, but once it loads, and I switch its DVD with Linux DVD, it does not recognize it. Is there any other way? Like to boot kloader from USB and use parameters to load it from DVD after I switch uLauchELF DVD with Linux DVD?
First, a big thx for Mega Man for his help, and a lot thx for the video.
I followed the video and successfully installed linux v3 on my old fat ps2 v10. But some things I did not get to make:
How do I access my pen drive (or something in the usb port)?
How do I access the disc on cd/dvd drive?
I tried test de Windowmaker with 2 attempts: through the screen menu (fluxbox / window / windowmaker), which send me to the command line; and add the line 'LOGINSCRIPT=win2' in kernel parameter. Both with no success. What did I do wrong?
The music player (xmms player) connects, and when the sound will go out.. error: Couldn't open audio. May be the need of libsd and sdrdrv modules? I put them on my memcard directory kloader, activated on confs and... error again: cannot open file.
My old fat ps2 is a SCPH-50001 3d (so a v10).
Yes, you can start kernelloader from USB and load the configuration from the DVD after kernelloader is started. Maybe your modchip supports UDF format only.

Then you need to use shell commands to access the files, because it is ony accessible as root user.
CDs and DVDs need also to be mounted:
mount /dev/ps2cdvd /cdrom
Some kernel parameters are processed by the initrd and this is not used when starting from hard disc.
When you are in the command line, you can enter the command win2 to start WindowMaker. You get to the command line by pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL (not backspace).
For sound you need to load the modules LIBSD and SDRDRV. When this is not working, you may use a wrong version of these files.
Thx a lot Mega Man! I will try your tips and some options of modules.
Mega Man, the results of my tries:
I found in some game disc the file SNDDRV. For curiosity, I renamed to SDRDRV and WORKS (who knows that?!)! But for a while. The kloader recognized it, but the system remains a problem, without recognizing the sound. I tried 5 files of LIBSD in addition of the option of load from rom0, and nothing. All attempts give the same result: the Xmms open the warning: Couldn't open audio. Says some error with audio board, or something using the audio out, you know.
What is happening?
Someone has the files that is working? It is possible to share?
Like I said before, my fat ps2 is a SCPH-50001 3d, model 10.
No need to rename sound files. The correct files are found on OLDER PS2 games, from 2001 for certain, maybe from 2002 and later on some. To see if you have an older game you can search wikipedia.org for "playstation 2 games" and look at the release date column.
Since I have to boot uLaunchELF from a DVD, and I can see the files of its DVD and cant switch DVDs since once it loads it wont see other DVDs, can you make a ISO from PS2 Linux version 3 from modchip slim that actually boots uLaunchELF but with all the files from PS2 Linux including kloader?
I used this uLaunchELF:
psx-scene . com /forums/ attachments / f113 / 24995d1296688240-how-make-ulaunch4-42-dvd-work-ulauchelf_442a_dvd . rar
(delete all spaces around the dots)
Thanks in advance!
I think it is not readable, because it is in ISO9660 format and not in UDF. So you need to burn it in a different way: How to Convert ISO to Udf
How to check if I converted ISO successfully, since I tried 2 out of 3 of those methods and just wasted 2 DVDs... I still get to try Nero...
When the ESR patcher is able to patch it, it is successfully converted. This is only a test for UDF, I don't assume that a ESR patched version is working better. I don't have a modchip, so I can't test it. Can someone else report, how good the autostart is working with a modchip?
