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!!!!!

  1. i have compiled graf's kernel but it won't load. I get errors when trying to compile the otheros-util files and don't know how to make packages from the executable files if they compiled. I have debian 2.6.38 on my PS3.
