Setting this straight!!

Ok i hate repeating my self so here is the post on my twitter

@everybody i wanted to let every one know what ever donations i get if i do i'm sending half graf's way for lawyer support. as i'm not doing this for money i just can't afford a server,

this what i have to say to the noob that flamed me a three page email calling me a all sorts of names

for all i care you can F&#* yourself, devs do this shit on there own time and dime. in not my fault i don't have the funds to do my extra stuff i like to give free to the public, i'm a stay at home dad, all the money my wife makes barely pays the bills and i have a mouth full of rotten teeth(genetics before you call me a drugy) that is killing me 24/7 i can't afford to fix. but i'm willing ask for donations to setup server to help my fellow ps3 users have a easier time setting up linux. that makes me selfish that makes me a leach for money? buddy you need to grow up, and ask why before you blame, and if you can do better f*^&ing;do it. don't harp on the people who have almost nothing, but give want they do have freely to the world.

@everyone sorry i had to get that out


my progress with the new kernel is comming along good, one snag graf's new config files seems to point it to the vflash only and i have to hunt down what changed in his configs. but that also mean i will be make two diffrent flavors from now on.
1: External root files system kernel
2: vflash file system kernel

The apt-repo is almost done i'm setting it up for now on one of my home servers.
once i get the two diffrent versions workin.
i will then be hosting the deb files from now on in the apt-repo.
i will also b e shooting for a day or less wait for the newest kernel as graf pumps.

Again thanks for the people that are supporting Linux on the ps3.
and again any donations for the server will be halfed for graf's donations.
and if you have a linux server we are able use for the hosting with high band-width
drop me a line. as i'm not here for money just Fun !!!

EASY as 1..2...3...uhh 5

Ok yall back again with simple easy way to do something else.
I haved taken the time to compile the latest Graf kernel as of April 1st 2010
For the Debain squeeze distro. compiled over 50+ times to make sure there are little errors.
This should be pretty straight forward.
if you havn't yet made a basic linux setup with the install Debain in the boot ooptions of BootOS do so now!!

You have three Files..


move them to a safe spot on your ps3 linux setup (Home dir should do).
you chocie how to move it.
once thats done just run.

$ su

$ dpkg -i linux*graf*.deb

$ update-initrd -u

That should install all the files needed to run the PS3 graf kernel.
one last thing add this too you kboot.conf in your root dir.
don't remove the first entry or you will be stuck without a bootble linux if the new kernel fails.
i use nano it seems the easyist for me again your choice.

grafkernel=/boot/vmlinux-2.6.38graf initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.38graf root=UUID=THIS_NUMBER_MUST_MATCH_YOUR_FIRST_ENTRY

ok you should now be able to reboot your ps3.
run lv2 patcher and such select your new kernel and injoy.
if it fail just reboot and select you orignal kernel boot

and run

$ su

$ dpkg -P linux*graf*

edit you kboot.conf and remove the entry you placed

$ update-initrd -u

$ reboot

that should remove everything installed..

Ok i like to thank graf and marcan for the lovely edits to this kernel with out them i could not pull this off.
i would like to say thanks to every one the keeps the homebrew alive..
Of course this is WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY i did not write a single bit of code besides my scripts to package it!!
And i have those :)


I will be workin on keeping this up to date as much as posible. i will also be trying to setup up repository
to hold the latest kernel builds. that all depends on donations and cost.
so all you have to do is add it to your sources.list and type apt-get.
SO THE MORE YOU DONATE faster i can get the servers upand running.


Site traffic helps feed my face Thanks!!!!!
