    Post Enable Wifi on Yellow Dog Linux with 1.7+ PS3 Firmware

    Sponsored Links
    1. Update the firmware on your PS3. This can be achieved from GameOS with the Software Update function in settings.

    2. Download the new PS3 wifi enabled kernel: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/attach...chmentid=14907

    3. Install the new kernel

    4. Edit /etc/kboot.conf
    Take your default kernel line, and make a copy of it and then modify the original line to point to the new kernel.

    For example, if your default kernel line is:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    The new section would like this:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Where oldydl is your original kernel.

    5. Reboot

    6. Configuring Wireless
    a) Unplug the ethernet cable, eth0 is both the wired and wireless
    Ethernet port on PS3s.
    b) Launch system-config-network (Network in the Settings menu)
    c) Delete the eth0 (gelic_net) interface.
    d) Create a Wireless connection.
    e) You may now configure that wireless connection as you would with
    other YDL versions. One note here that confused me when I did this
    was that the ESSID specified as "Auto", when I actually needed to
    remove that and select the Auto radio button.
    f) You can now activate the interface.

    7. Enjoy your new wireless enabled PS3.

    Edit /etc/kboot.conf. the kboot file isn't in that etc folder at all. what do i do now since its not there or anywhere on the hard drive ?

  3. #3
    kboot config file should be there if it's not create it.

  4. #4
    how do i create it and what should be in the kboot.conf file after i create it ?

    is this what i got to type out also rpm -ivh /path/to/kernel-ps3-2.6.16-20070425.ydl.3.ppc64.rpm or do i gotta find where the kernel file is at and put that in ?

    the easiest way to wifi is YDL 6.0 or 6.1 distros.

    where is the best place to download ydl? cuz when i downloaded it from there website for some reason it won't let me install the wifi part of it ?

    when i try to load the kernel into the computer through the terminal it says kernel < 2.6.17 conflicts with autos-5.0.1-0.rc2.43.0.2.ppc kernel < 2.6.17 conflicts with hal-05.9-8.ppc what do i do to fix this problem so i can get the kernel to work ?
