    maybe addresses to the mirror is changed?
    maybe that....

    the files that needs to be downloaded now can't be found.
    That may be the possible problem.

    Because I don't think emtionchip will effect the way you use linux.
    (I could be wrong on this... but I'm prettu sure)

    Just so i can try and locate the problem and i am sorry to keep on bothering you but i really dont understand the problem and i really would like this to work.

    What PS3 model are you using? (UK, US, JP...)

    What firmware are you using? (1.1...1.6)

    I am just trying to work out the difference between what i am doing and what you are doing. If you could try to do a fresh install of Fedora 6 for me and let me know how you get on i would be greatful.

    Ok i am gonna run through everything i done to see if it matches up with what you done:

    1) Format PS3 (alot 10GB to PS3, rest towards OtherOS)
    2) Install Boot Files (from USB Device) (which came from the Linux Addon CD)
    3) Reboot System, Insert Fedora Core 6 DVD PPC
    4) Install Minmum (Has no Errors) / Install Maximum (Few Errors)
    5) Once installation Complete, Insert Linux PS3 Addon CD.
    6) Installation Complete, Reboot Console
    7) Once Booted and logged into root access, type: yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

    Error Produced, cannot find mirror.

    Thats more or less what i did, exactly as you did.

    Update: i will upload a video of what i done so you can see if i have done anything wrong. The video will not be compressed so it will be large. It will be around 400MB, i will upload the link when its finished uploading.
    Console: PS3
    Firmware: 1.60

    Running: Fedora Core 6 (Linux)

    hmmm thats really strange.

    I have us version of ps3, firmware 1.31.

    i used gnome as well since that is the most stable GUI while running linux.
    I haven't tried it out recently but like I stated from above it may be the links.
    I will try sometime this weekend and see if the same error happens to me.

    This video shows the whole installation process, hope it helps track down the problem.

    holy mother of god, man!
    you uploaded whole 400mb? wow.
    I'll be sure to take a look.

    401.1 MB downloading @ 120k - I'm downloading other things as well sorry.
    It will roughly take about 1 hour and after I view it I'll let you know.

    Just on the side note, did kde gui work for you?

    as soon as you downloaded it, i will remove the link.

    I have a special TV with built in Hard Drive so it makes recording alot easier.

    It records it as mpeg so the file size is big but the video length is short.

    It took about 4 hours to upload the video @ 30KB/sec.

    KDE did not work either, it produces the same error with the mirror site (check the last min of the video to see the mirror error).

    I have come to conclusion.
    Links have problems.

    one by one, tidious work but had to be done....

    It seems to me that couple of links has gone bad. (weird... since I used this not too long ago... [early march? late feb? ] )

    I'll try to fix the typos(?) and the actual broken links.
    Ill still watch the videos to make sure that was the only problem.

    Thanks for reporting razorwing.

    I think error is in here. Where it actually have to connect to ftp.


    Just out of curiousity Im asking this...
    you didn't actually type in # in front of these lines right?

    These are called rem and it's just there to show you these are what you have to type in....
    Just checking

    No problem, i am here to help as much as possible.

    Yeah i know the # are just for typing, the command i used after installation was (extactly):

    yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"

    Let me know when you downloaded the video and go to the 10min mark of the video, you will see that the mirror its trying to locate is from http://mirrors.fedoraproject.com which its not finding. Why its not finding i am not sure.

    It may be files are moved to different mirror?
    I think I'm going to have to try install this again on my ps3 to find out for sure.
    For now, I wait for your video to download.
    Then we'll see. right now i'm looking for a way to use different mirror.

    Your video looks pretty damn good.

    After viewing the recordings there is 1 thing that I have seen...
    and it was this,


    Fedora 6 core kernel version.

    Check the end of the video and you will see

    "2.6.16 kernel."

    I think this might be the source of the problem as I stated earlier in this tut,

    Kernel used is the kernel in the PS3 Linux Addon CD. So be carefull and do not replace the kernel with the FC6 kernel.
    However this does puzzle me, I'll look further into it this weekend installing this.
    (50/50 chance since I didn't try it yet...)
