The RTE stuff isn't an issue, I can get them if I need them, and it's also not an issue as I have a V7, they aren't even needed for my console to run linux with sound/usb/whatever, at least, that I've come across. I've googled for pink screens in ps2 linux and come up with just stuff for pink screens on ELFs, nothing about linux, let alone how to go about fixing it.
Using GSM has fixed problems with other things flashing, but when I launch linux from kloader it seems to reset anything GSM did, and goes right back to pink text. On component with the default NTSC kloader switch the screen is pink AND flashes so much my face explodes. Yeah, all over my HDTV screen. So in the end, its not flashing, but pink, or flashing and pink with component, normal with composite. What are we missing?
Theres something inside there someplace that will fix this, I find it hard to believe that sony's linux for their ps2 can't use component video normally. I say this because booting the sony linux cd 1 boots...PINK right off the bat. So, no that wasn't based entirely on what deba5ers distro does, but also what sony's distro does.
