I have just installed Ubuntu 7.10 on my PS3 (with the latest firmware 2.10). I had this previously mentioned wlan problem (wired worked well), and I tried to solve it by following this how-to http://psubuntu.com/2007/11/10/ps3-f...0-breaks-wifi/ with bad success. My system is totally messed up. The only message I get after kboot is:
Loading kernel with initrd...success.
And after that it is totally jammed.
i followed this
Part 2 - update the kernel
There are two ways to get a new kernel.
You can either download the kernel, or build one on your own.
As the cd access is broken until we have a new kernel in place - downloading the new kernel is a safe option to get up and running - and it saves much of your time and coffe machine power Smile
2) Download custom build deps
Download the debs files from rapidshare or megaupload:
ATTENTION - UPDATED VERSIONS! PLEASE REINSTALL FOR WORKING BLUETOOTH!
this is sha1sum:
838c869513cdfeb8584cd5291 55ac59e4cbdd03f linux-kernel-2.6.23-rc7+tools.tar
this is md5sum:
30a0954493045b3e9118bb16f b79e592 linux-kernel-2.6.23-rc7+tools.tar
please check it after download
after downloading the kernel - untar it with:
tar xf linux-kernel-2.6.23-rc7+tools.tar
then enter the linux-kernel... directory and install it:
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.23-rc7-powerpc64-smp-custom_20070924_powerpc.d eb
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-2.6.23-rc7-powerpc64-smp-custom_20070924_powerpc.d eb
sudo dpkg -i ps3pf-utils_2.0-1_powerpc.deb
sudo dpkg -i wifi-radar_1.9.8-0ubuntu2_all.deb
and i had to format my whole ps3 and reinstall ubuntu...now i need help to installing my wifi, because this is going to happen to me again
