I installed Ubuntu 9.10 on my machine 5 minutes ago. I run:
"sudo java -jar ps3noupdate.jar"
and thei work without issues.
I'm inside the PS3 Home right now...
I ahve to work now. But I'll google a little bit more for the issue later... you should check you java policies inside your JVM...
BTW. I'm using the SUN JRE. Do NOT use MS JVM, or any other jvm implementation
I'm updating the PS3 Home at this very moment using the application running on Ubuntu 9.10 32 bits...
Are you sure you isntalled the Sun JRE?
I can't edit my message anymore. I almost forgot:
For the windows users:
Open a DOS terminal and run it from there. so we can check what's the error message!
you may also like to try to run the jar directly:
java -jar ps3noupdate.jar
So far what I have succesfully tested is:
Ubuntu 9.10 32 bits
Windows XP 32 bits
BTW: the linux "run.sh" is corrupted. it has a bad encoding... just edit it and save it again from linux. or use "sudo java -jar ps3noupdate.jar" tu run it
