November 25, 2011 // 4:45 pm - Following up on their Red Ribbon GNU / Linux Release Candidate 5 for PS3 update, today PlayStation 3 developer r04drunner has incorporated the wireless driver for PS3 Slim models from Gitbrew into Red Ribbon GNU / Linux RC5 for PS3.

To quote from their page: This update integrates the wireless driver for the slims models developed by gitbrew. You need to connect the PS3 to the Internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

[Register or Login to view code]

Then, you can execute it:

[Register or Login to view code]

And wait until finished.

If while executing it asks: You are running a kernel (version 2.6.38-powerpc64) and attempting to remove the same version. This is a potentially disastrous action. Not only will /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.38-powerpc64 be removed, making it impossible to boot it, (you will have to take action to change your boot loader to boot a new kernel), it will also remove all modules under the directory /lib/modules/2.6.38-powerpc64. Just having a copy of the kernel image is not enough, you will have to replace the modules too.

I repeat, this is very dangerous. If at all in doubt, answer Yes. If you know exactly what you are doing, and are prepared to hose your system, then answer No.

Do you want to abort removal now?

You must answer NO.
