    So I recently decided to but Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy onto my PS3, but, as expected, it didn't work out.

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    I have already partitioned my PS3 with OtherOS and burned Ubuntu onto a disc (I'm sure it is the one meant for the PS3, since it was on the site I used) and popped it into the PS3, and then came to the Kbooter which it is supposed to. Except instead of just prompting me to install, I got this message:

    m01a0340qs2.jpg (not my picture, but the same error)

    And I have no idea how to get it to find rootfs. If anyone could help, that would be awesome!

    Thanks.

    Don't want to sound silly... but have you checked with the http://ubuntuforums.org/ people?

    They are a great help - the level of free service received from them beats any commercial contract you will ever pay for... but you probably know that, just wanted to make sure...?

    Try Hardy Heron?

    Also, are there any other alternative Operating Systems that allow use on the PS3?

    It boots Linux onto your PS3, so it could be like a computer basically. (Linux is an open source operating system


    I tried that when I first got the error, nothing happened =/
