January 30, 2013 // 10:24 pm - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 developer r04drunner has announced that a new online update for Red Ribbon GNU / Linux on the PS3 entertainment system is now available which includes a new logout window, theme and a bug fix when shutting down or rebooting the console with details below.

Download: Red Ribbon RC 6 and 7 GNU / Linux for PS3 (SourceForge)

To quote: This update has been designed for the releases candidates 6 and 7. It includes the following changes:

  • Added a new logout window that includes the "Boot GameOS" option.
  • Added a new version of the Red Ribbon theme.
  • Fixed the hang problems when shutting down and rebooting.

You need to connect the PS3 to the internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

Then, you must execute it:

And wait until finished. Then, you must logout and login again.

This update will be included on the next release of the LiveCD.

Note: When you turn off the PS3 if the red light is blinking, do not worry. Now a syscall is used to simulate a problem and to turn off the PS3, but actually everything is ok.
