Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I don't want to say the above suggestion wasn't helpful, but it didn't work for me. I borrowed a USB keyboard and I tried your suggestion. I even built a Linux boot disk (from another google search) but it just did not want to boot from any media. I know the boot disk was properly built since it booted in my other desktop CPU.
I paid Sony the $149 ransom and it is now working.
I don't really want to label this the solution and skew the stats, but it was for me.

This is an issue Sony is aware of and is posting updates to the linux program. However here is a step you can do right now. Updating your PS3 to the latest firmware is recommended before proceeding To force the PS3 to boot up normally hold down the Power button for about 5 seconds or more at power on. This is in case you do not have a keyboard. with a keyboard you can use boot-game-os command to reboot to the PS3 game os: If you have the media cd attempt this also Select Settings -> System Settings -> Format Drive. Note that you will loose any saved game info. Create two partitions one for the PS3s normal use and one for openSUSE. Insert the media in the PS3 Select Settings -> System Settings -> Install Other OS. The PS3 will display the installers it can find. Click OK to start the installer. Follow the instructions of the Sony installer. To boot into the Other OS, select Settings > System Settings > Default System > Other OS. This causes the 'Other OS Boot loader' to be loaded on every boot. .
