I do miss the days when posts in any given thread were more commonly found to be ONTOPIC rather than this fuss. Oh well, had a good laugh with some of you, and many of you have a really strong point there..
I have a problem. While trying to boot the http://gitbrew.org/~rnd/Linux-2.6.39-Rnd.iso
written to DVD-R from petitboot, it reads for a little while (6 seconds) and then spits out "System is going down". I've tried with both the internal PS3 Bluray drive and with an external USB DVD-RW.
My Linux-2.6.39-Rnd.iso md5-sum is b93648ae2eb9a0020762e94ff18b473b
Hmm.. seems someone else is having this trouble as well.
Problem unanswered, mainly because his post got flanked by mass and mass of offtopic talk about who's to blaim for that, the devs should be burnt alive, the TB dongle is the devil itself etc. etc...
So, maybe this time, someone has a possible answer ?
It's impossible to change to a new console and do a dmesg. the time is too short
Further investigating, I've managed to get a glimpse of /var/log/messages with tail -f while booting.
Before actually selecting the debian image for booting the messages contain some complaints about bogus number of reserved sectors FAT and that it can't find a valid FAT filesystem on dev ram X (5 7 ..etc)
After selecting the image for boot, i get these boring lines:
starting pid bla bla tty '/dev/tty2' : '/bin/ash --login'
starting pid bla bla tty '' : '/etc/init.d/rcS K stop'
Entering released state
Aaand the show is over
