    Setting up linux on your 3.55 machine guide

    hey everyone I came across this great tutorial on how to set linux on your ps3 easly, and for those of you that don't like debian that much it works for every single distro.
    I am not the author of this guide, the author is a psx-scene user George234
    This is a great guide and its not hard to follow, a bit linux experience is recomended, so without further ado let me begin this tutorial.


    Ok so you've been playing about with linux on the ps3 and find that debian isnt your first choice distro...ok so im guna explain the process on how to get which ever distro you like up and running on your ps3.

    The first step is you require some certain pieces of software to do this;

    1) You need to download the powerpc64 version of the distro of your choice
    e.g Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) "PlayStation 3 desktop CD
    For Sony PlayStation 3 systems. (This defaults to installing Ubuntu permanently, since there is usually not enough memory to try out the full desktop system and run the installer at the same time. An alternative boot option to try Ubuntu without changing your computer is available.)" or Arch Linux PPC "ISO images can be downloaded via HTTP from the mirror site listed below.
    2011.03.05_archppc-ftp.iso"

    2)you need to download your iso file and burn it to cd

    3)Now to the ps3, obviously you need to have kmeaw 3.55/rebug 2.55.2 installed as your cfw next you need this file http://www.multiupload.com/2VFF4HA9OD (this file is a variant of kmeaws bootos but instead of using asbestos it uses petitboot instead). if you have had kmeaws bootos installed previously you need to uninstall it first. to do this go to the game cat nand scroll down till you get to the installed bootos/asbestos then triangle and delete. Next you need to get the lv2patcherv9 from here http://www.multiupload.com/YNQYRATFUF then pop both pkg files onto a usb and install via xmb. then run the bootos/petitboot installer and if you dont have it already the lv2patcherv9 and install that. Also attach your external harddrive.

    4)now you want to insert your burnt distro into your ps3. The boot up lv2patcherv9 which will then load petitboot....at this point give petitboot abit of time to find your disc...at this point it will give u different methods to install the distro of your choice depending on the options built into the live cd. for ubuntu for example i used expert but tbh the install is probz for the best(i will get some screen shots asap)

    5)for those whom have installed debian the installer looks pretty much the same from here in. It will let you choose your keyboard/language and also nicely format your external harddrive to run the distro for you(my external shows up as scsi2 and the internal as sda so make sure your choose the right hard drive as your could mess with things you may regret!). Also enter your username and etc(for those who are using for the first time)

    and the end product is this......

    ubuntu 10.10 up n running on 3.55 =)

    now for grafs latests updates here:http://www.megaupload.com/?d=40I89MD9 and then follow http://psx-scene.com/forums/f119/scr...-bootos-82909/ (Script: auto build and package graf's latest kernel for debian/bootos) from having compiled the kernel so all u gotta do is just install the pkg's follow the tut n alter the kboot.conf and your good to go

    respect to graf, kmeaw, cookie42(for upload of latest kernel pkg's),flukes and the rest...ave fun guys =)
    there you go guys share it and have fun, hope you enjoy using your ubuntoo or whatever distro you installed

    and thanks George234

    Always hangs at petitboot for me. Seems to be a common problem.

    I see all my Ubuntu options at petitboot but keyboard doesn't allow me to select one. 1 person said to try a wired controller to pick option but I haven't tried that. Others said I would have to telnet in to select the option. But a keyboard does not let me pick any options and looks like it just freezes.

    I will wait till Graf releases the way he runs Gentoo from his (his friend's?) internal HD with petitboot from flash. External HD/USB stick is still not fast enough. It is workable but needs that extra boost to function a lot better. Debian with Graf kernel is good enough for me for now.
    I saw this article this weekend at psx-scene and have used George234 his deb files to install the latest Graf kernel on my slim PS3:


    (sorry for the dutch language in the picture, use a little imagination and you will understand what is says...) Webmin: Great program, all kind of control within the browser on another computer/phone, also has plugins for proftpd ftp server etc. Love it

    -----------------------------------------------

    Some fun pictures I found on my online album:


    Graf brings back Linux and the Scene loves him for this and are happy with each other....


    German police Raid at Graf his house: WE WANT YOUR PS3 AND A MILLION EURO'S !!!

    Just some fun pics, life is so serious these days
