神机满塞!

好奇心大发,为了安Yellow Dog入了神机,为了顺利安装,头两天就已经下好了高级的6.1,生怕出问题扫了兴致,把能找的存储设备全找来了(除了让某人还我psp未果,非要明天才换给我以外)。

因为机器拿来的有点急,大概8点40到店,9点已经完成交易,除了hdmi以外,连游戏都没买,捡了大善人的两张RBD,打算回家先看看啥叫RB,结果出门碰到有300的小小大星球,就换了个店买了一张,不过到目前为止,几个小时了,还没功夫碰那唯一想在神机上玩的游戏。

回家,把dvd扒拉到一边,用了换下来的hdmi,开机,看到一个psp的启动画面(因为我没亲手摸过神机3),简单设置之后,先看传说中的PSN Home,嗯。。。果然很zhuangbility,就是怎么设置都设置不出个人样,然后给我一个漂亮的公寓,让看看海景,出去看了看,嗯。。。。海景。。。一般。之后做移动,因为昨天看见更新了Siren的鬼屋,就去看看,结果门口很可怕,很多老外说外国话(还真不适应非语音的在线系统),很可怕,就只好挤了位置看了看预告片,然后去售票处, 非营业时间,只好以后有时间再来。

神机的联网速度因为画面的关系,好慢。。。

老觉得去哪都要更新,于是就一点兴趣都没有了。关了之后去电脑上吧光盘和文件都准备好,光盘刻成DVD-R,一共3.3G(这YDL更新的真腼腆),也没顾上看文件结构,直接考了两个启动文件到U盘,插到神机上开始引导。

结果果然出了问题,怎么都找不到vmlinux-ps3,就这么耗了1个小时,好在我悟性较高,会使用..boot-xxxx-os,没办法,只能开始认真的查文档了。

国内的更新基本上停止于06年,那个年代,是YDL5的时代,和现在的版本格格不入,于是只好开始看老外的指导(老外都比较笨吧,我碰到的问题他们大概都出现过),解决方法很简单,原来6.1已经内置了ps3引导,md,我真fc。

一下豁然开朗,接下来的事情大概就在几分钟内完成了,安装固然漫长,但看到YDL还是很兴奋。神机果然是神机,系统开放到这个程度,很快就会应用无限。

遗憾的是,神机的游戏都比较贵,而且没有我感兴趣的类型,买游戏机竟然是因为系统开放而不是为了游戏,还真可悲。另外多年用xo的手柄,实在是在很不适应神机这单薄的小手。虽然PSN Store的分类明显好于Live,但怎么都觉得PSN输在了速度上,想我这种急性子,不用给我3D看,我看招贴画就能做好决定。游戏,还是留在xo上玩吧,每张盘都能省出100多,实惠,量足,还能语音。

总之,这是一个很有意思的Linux主机,除了这个机会以外,我不会把我的任何电脑装成Linux,所以太难得了,本着好好学习的目的,模拟器和各类播放器是少不了的。

顺便感谢我老婆,感谢你送我的生日礼物(虽然东西是我自己挑的,单是我自己买的,你甚至都没有出面,但还是很感谢)!

留个底,日后好查:

Installing Linux on the PlayStation3: A short guide
OVERVIEW
Installing Linux on a PS3 is practically the same as installing it as a second operating system on a normal PC. Therefore, we cover here the basic steps that allow to set up a dual booting (e.g. PS3 native and PS3 Linux) machine. Here we list the three steps:
1. Create space for Linux operating system on your PS3.
2. Boot a minimal version of Linux.
3. Install Linux distribution (here, we use Yellow Dog Linux)
WHAT DO YOU NEED BEFORE STARTING
1. A PlayStation3
2. A USB keyboard is essential (mouse is not, but can be handy)
3. PS3 controller is essential, but that comes with your PS3
4. A display – your TV will do well. Alternatively, a computer LCD monitor with DVI-D plug and HDCP complaint and a DVI-D to HDMI cable.
SOFTWARE DOWNLOADS
Download the following:
* update the firmware of your PS3 to the latest release (follow the instructions in the booklet of the PS3)
* YDL DVD ISO (This is a DVD .iso, so you will need a DVD burner to burn the ISO on a DVD under Linux or Windows)
STEPS TO INSTALL LINUX ON THE PLAYSTATION3
A) CREATING SPACE FOR LINUX OS
* Switch on your PS3. Select Settings -> System Settings -> Format Utility.
* Answer Yes to the following question ‘…. Are you sure to continue?’ No data will be deleted. Select ‘Custom’ when asked about partition settings and then select ‘Allot 10GB to the Other OS’ (you may decide to give 10GB to the PS3 system depending if you plan to use more Linux or the PS3 for games).
* After this step, your PS3 will format the hard drive accordingly, creating a 10GB slot in your hard disk for Linux OS.
* When the PS3 has finished formatting, a “Format Complete” message will appear. Everything is OK. Then, Press X button on controller to restart the system.
B) BOOT A MINIMAL VERSION OF LINUX
* After completing part A), insert the YDL6 DVD you have burnt before.
* Select Settings -> System settings -> Install Other OS. After that your PS3 will search for an “other os installer”. It should find it on your YDL DVD in the /PS3/otheros/ folder on the DVD, so you are prompted something like: installer found in ….
* Select OK, and the PS3 will ask you to press the X button to start the installer.
* Press the X button. Your PS3 will install the “minimal Linux boot loader” (otheros.bld file) so that you can run a minimal version of linux when restarting your PS3.
* We have to tell your PS3 to run the bootloader every time it is switched on, so that you can choose between the two operating systems. Select Settings -> System Settings -> Default System You will have to choose between PS3 and Other OS. Select Other OS.
* Switch off your PS3 holding down the PS button on your controller.
INSTALL LINUX DISTRIBUTION (YDL6)
* Switch your PS3 back on and insert the YDL6 DVD. At the kboot prompt, press the TAB button until you see someting like PS3 and the screen resolution that fits your TV best.
* From now on, follow YDL installer instructions.
