Hey ya all, I had a lot of probs with booting ubuntu fromout kboot.
Since I had no disks (and it is 22:30 on sunday) left I tried USB sticks.
I downloaded the ubuntu 9.04 alternative PS3 image, http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/rele...owerpc+ps3.iso and got it on the drive with unetbootin(356).
after doing the usual with the otheros.bld I booted up the PS3 and came to kboot but no disk....
so I did the following
to open a shell
checking out what dev is my usb in my case sda1 and mounting itCode:$kboat: sh
after a lot of **** from kexec i tried to load it with -f (force!) and it worked like a charm!Code:ls /dev/sd?1 #in my case sda1 mkdir /mnt/temp mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/temp cd /mnt/temp
the installer will boot!Code:kexec ubnkern --initrd=ubninit --append="root=/dev/sda1" -f
now the only (known) prob (for me that is) with the installer is, it will search for a cdrom for the files to install but we have don't have one... so i tried the how to on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/FromUSBStick but no succes
I did the following
with the last command I getCode:mkdir /cdrom /dev/cdroms cd /dev/cdroms ln -s ../sda1 cdrom0 mount -t vfat /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 /cdrom
I read a lot about the error but cant get it to work... is replacing the initrd and kern the only option to avoid this problem? and is it still needed (posts are about older versions)Code:mount: mounting /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 on /cdrom failed: no such device
