First you should try a disk check, not sure how to do it in the PS3, though.
Are you in the group admin and sudo?
uh yeah when I enter "groups" in the Terminal, after my username it has "adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare".
is there some sort of System Restore feature maybe?
Then I don't know what your errors are all about...
I would recommend to reformat the system...
A new Ubuntu version is just coming out (10.04, Lucid Lynx), so...
i reinstalled/reformatted, got the installer to work but had some trouble getting it function, then I had my internet connection keep cutting off, even after rebooting.
I'm just gonna update my PS3. :/ (remove Other OS feature so I can go on psn.)
thanks for the help anyway guys.
I've recently upgraded to Lucid (by way of clean installation) and I can't use my DualShock 3 anymore. It's apparently detected when I plug it into my computer (it's listed in qtsixa), but the device file /dev/input/js0 is never created. If it helps, here's the dmesg output:
When I try to pair it from the menu, it freezes for a few seconds and reports:Code:[ 2998.024026] usb 7-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 7 [ 2998.247145] usb 7-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice [ 3013.261250] /build/buildd/linux-2.6.32/drivers/hid/usbhid/hid-core.c: usb_submit_urb(ctrl) failed [ 3013.261265] sony 0003:054C:0268.0009: timeout initializing reports [ 3013.261401] input: Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.1/usb7/7-1/7-1:1.0/input/input14 [ 3013.261670] sony 0003:054C:0268.0009: input,hiddev96,hidraw3: USB HID v1.11 Joystick [Sony PLAYSTATION(R)3 Controller] on usb-0000:00:1d.1-1/input0 [ 3018.261682] sony 0003:054C:0268.0009: can't set operational mode [ 3018.284357] sony: probe of 0003:054C:0268.0009 failed with error -110
...and when I pull the plug and turn the controller on again, it starts acting as a new mouse (even though that option isn't selected).Code:USB_REQ_GET_CONFIGURATION: Connection timed out USB_REQ_SET_CONFIGURATION: Connection timed out Current Bluetooth master: Setting master bd_addr to 00:1b:dc:00:44:3c
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Things are a little weird on Lucid... You should, first of all, select "None" as profile and apply it. Lucid ships a Xorg conf that enables joystick mouse without user intervention. This way *any* joystick won't work as mouse or keyboard.
Which kernel are use using?
The hidraw device seems to be created when you connect over USB. You can use "sudo sixad-raw /dev/hidrawX" to get it to work. It's not the perfect solution, but it should work.
I'll look into these Lucid issues soon, just be a little patient.
Thanks for creating this works quite well.

Well, I checked with and without the controller connected and it doesn't look like it's actually creating one... I tried sixad-raw anyway with the last hidraw device and it told me it wasn't a controller.The hidraw device seems to be created when you connect over USB. You can use "sudo sixad-raw /dev/hidrawX" to get it to work.
