The above video goes away if you are a member and logged in, so log in now!
I am assuming that kloader2.6.elf shows the following in the version menu:
PS2 Console type: SCPH-70006
PS2 Region type: 0x4a 0x41
PS2 ROM Version: 0200HC20040614
Is this correct?
Please look at the following video: PS2 Linux Live DVD v2 - YouTube
Kernelloader 2.0 has no support for reading DVD-R in SBIOS, so I assume that you never seen 1:00 to 3:00 before.
Please compare 0:55 with your output. What is the difference?
Please try the following version: http://kernelloader.sourceforge.net/...nstable_v1.elf
Does the error message at startup still appear?
Go to the file menu and load the default config and then the config from the DVD.
Then enter the kernel parameter:
ramdisk_size=16384 writedev=/dev/sda3 writetype=ext2 swapdevice=/dev/sda2 autostart=10

There is no difference betwwen the outputs of the new kloader 2.7
I tried your kloader 2.7 it worked flawlessly. It was the total opposite of "unstable" Still don't know why you kept its name so..
"load the default config"
What do you mean?
also the area in the kloader to edit kernel pararameter needs a usb key board. I have a usb key board which only works when the dvd is running. Pls help.
And the drive which has all the 3 partions cannot be opened with the kloader. pls fix the problem.
EDIT: Could you make corrections to my configuration txt file? Thanks

I called it unstable, because it is no offical release and it is not fully tested.
In the kernelloader is a menu entry called "File Menu". In the menu are to entries "Restore defaults" and "Load Config from DVD".
The new kernelloader supports inserting of text without a keyboard, but with a game pad:
The key is selected with R1 and L1. The triangle button inserts the key. Left and right moves the cursor left and right. The square button deletes a character and the circle button is for fast jumping in key selection. The start button jumps to the beginning and the select button to the end of the string.
I attached a config.txt file that should work:
You need to copy it to the kloader directory on the memory card (left slot 0) (i.e. replace). Then you can start kloader2.7. The file is configured to auto detect the video mode. This should select NTSC on your console.
Kernelloader can only open FAT partitions, you will need to format it with:
When you enter "fdisk -l" the partition type must bes as follows
/dev/sda1 e Win95 FAT16 (LBA)
/dev/sda2 82 Linux Swap
/dev/sda3 83 Linux
The partition were formated with:
Thanks to you every thing worked fine. But the command you gave for formating the first partition to fat didn't work. Pls give an alternate.
The command is not on the PS2 live dvd. You need to use a Linux for your PC or Windows to format it.
I'm using windows 7. So is there any way to format it into fat16?

When you click on the device in Windows, it will ask and you can format it. I don't know which format it will use under Windows 7. Maybe it asks for the format. Under Windows you can't see which partition is formatted. It could format sda1, sda2 or sda3. If you only see one drive, it should be the correct one with the Windows partition type.
You can mount it under PS2 Linux with the following commands in xterm:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
Then you can copy your stuff to or from /mnt/sda1.
When you start a web server under Windows, you can also copy files to the PS2 using the web browser.
Thanks a lot. I was just downloading an avi from the dillo browser to play it with the sms player.

EDIT: I tried the code still just writable. Sda1 is formatted to FAT32.
Also the you tube doesn't seem to work that good. I tried it with the flv retriver still a after a series of messages, the window automatically closes itself. Pls guide me more on this matter. Also i tried formatting sda1 to FAT16 still the kernel loader couldn't browse files through it. I guess whatever drive has more than one primary partition, It doesnet work in kloader, myps2, Opl etc.

You need to add the mount command to some script which is started late at boot time. For ease of this description I suggest the file /etc/rc5.d/S90setcrtmode (otherwise you need to have more knowlegde about Linux).
There is the following line in /etc/rc5.d/S90setcrtmode:
/usr/bin/setcrtmode -p > /etc/crtmode.default
You need to add:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/sda1
after this line and before the line with ";;".
The kernelloader should be able to handle a FAT partition, even if there are other partitions. There can be a problem that you need to disconnect the stick and reconnect it.
Copy the file youtube.txt over /usr/local/bin/youtube (remove extension .txt).
You need to make it executable:
chmod +x /usr/local/bin/youtube
You need to select the URL of the video with the mouse and then click in the fluxmenu on "Play Youtube". This will exeucte the script and download the video. This downloads 240x400, because this is the only resolution which is working for all videos and on the PS2.
This also downloads an updated script to /home/adent/youtube-dl. If youtube changes something, it is not working and the script need to be updated again. You can delete youtube-dl, it will be updated the next time.
I edited the file with the command and saved it. Still the usb isn't mounted on startup.
And /usr/local/bin/youtube is not re writable, so i can't transfer it there. Pls help.
