    Post How to Fix Boot-Game-OS in Yellow Dog Linux

    On some versions of Yellow Dog Linux (for PS3), the "boot-game-os" command line gives you an error similar to "/sbin/other-os-flash-util: No such file or directory", which prevents you from getting back to the PS3 XMB.

    Below is a simple, step-by-step guide on how to fix the error:

    1. Login in as root and go to "/sbin/" using the Nautilus.

    2. Open "boot-game-os" in text editor.

    3. Change the text "/dev/ps3flash" to "/dev/sdb" and save the file.

    4. Now the boot-game-os command line should work properly.
