There should be a command “boot-game-os” you can run from the terminal and it should reboot. Wait, trying to run that command, it says “command not found”… another WTF… After some more digging, it turns out the command resides in the “/sbin” directory, which users don’t have access to… (even root? man…) So we need to make a sym-link. You can do this as a regular user, but you need to “su”, then run cd /bin
ln -s /sbin/boot-game-os boot-game-os Then, you can just go to the “start” menu in TDL, and there is an option then to “Boot Game OS” - works like a charm, reboot and you are back to the PS3

are you useing the linux or windows based ps3..there is a differnce ..firmware updates with the windows based systems..and try updateing the software with the linux based systems..but prolly firm ware for the drive..
Ok-here is your problem, the broadband card (any broadband car for that matter) needs to have drivers and software installed to function- And the ps3 does not allow you to install 3rd party software or drivers - The only way you can use a wireless broadband card ona ps3 is to install linux on your system and use your ps3 as a desktop PC, however the ps3's ability to run linux depends on the model and age of your system, newer slim units (from what I have read) do not support the "Other OS" feature of its predicessors , I own a first gen 80gig with reverse compatability, and run linux (its cool) however I havent had any hands on experiance with the newer systems. if you have a home pc you can buy a router (you have to buy one that supports USB cellular broadband devices-so do some research to make sure you get one compatable with your card) and once you have your card configured to the wifi router you can use the ps3 wifi and get online that way- Bummer I know but I went through the same ordeal using an altel huwawei broadband card
Yes, the PS3 had an Integrated web browser so internet access is possible with it, you can use a usb mouse and usb keyboard as well...Its not as easily navigated as a PC but it will do most things online. Another option you have is to install Linux on the ps3 by creating a 10g partition, when you do this you loose all saved game data on your system but you can do a system backup prior to installing linux. all you need is an external usb drive to back up your system. Once linux is installed you have a fully functional PC on your ps3...Neet hu...Instructional videos can be found on YouTube
You can upgrade the hard drive to a bigger one just as long as it's the
same physical size as the original one. The 40GB PS3 is technically
capable of backwards compatibility. It's just that Sony's OS doesn't
support it on that model (maybe, there will be a firmware update that
will allow it in the future). If you install Linux on the PS3 (which
Sony officially allows you to do), then you can install the PS1
emulator (it's called ePSXe) and the PS2 emulator (it's called PCSX2).
Both of them are free to download for Linux. The only thing that won't
make the 40GB model the same as the 80GB is the finish of the console,
lack of built-in memory card reader, lack of built-in WiFi, and only 2
USB ports. But those aren't neccesary.
first back up all your important files on a medium,then go to the system settings and chose the format hard disk option after doing this you get a partition option use at least 1/4 of your hard disk space for os reserve after, the format is complete insert the linux dogfire or ubuntu dvd then go to install os on the system menu, it should recognize the disc,then install away
