If you haven't tried this yet, try it. It should work. Likewise, you can setup your network stuff with
Code:
system-config-network
. Note that this is not specific to the PS3. This is the same for all machines running Fedora Core.

In all un*x-like systems, there is one user who has permissions to do everything. This user is always called "root". Normaly one should not do everyday work such as browsing the web or writing documents as the root user. The risk of trashing your installation are too high, and the security of your system might be compromised. Read any introductory book about Linux or BSD on the subject.

Hm, maybe the permissions for the /tmp/ directory were not set correctly.
type
Code:
ls -ld /tmp/
If you see this: drwxrwxrwt 4 root root <whatever> /tmp/
you are fine.
If you see this: drwxr-xr-x 4 root root <whatever> /tmp/
you have to change it.
Type:
Code:
chmod a+rwx /tmp/ 
chmod +t /tmp/
Again, this is not specific for the PS3, this is a general concept on all un*x like systems.
(Hint: read about "chmod" and "sticky bit" on the internet. There's plenty of good documentation.)

If you already are connected to the internet, you can start the NTPD (network time protocold daemon) via
Code:
/etc/init.d/ntpd restart
You're welcome


Jesus, a lot of help there, thanks!

But I hate to ask: where, when and how do I write all these codes, and do I have to make to users???

Depends. Again, I've asked this before but got no answer:
Are you working in the text console or have you set up the X11(graphical) console?

This http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Fedora_Core_5.png is what the graphical console looks like.

This http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Bash_screenshot.png is what the text console looks like.

If you use the text console, you type those commands directly. (Where else? and if you use the graphical console, you should start a "terminal emulation". It's an application usuallty called "Terminal" or "Console". It's a good idea to set up the graphical console. I've described this in a previous post.
However, in order to set up the graphical console, you have to edit at least one text file. You can use the editor jpico for that. Type
Code:
jpico <Filename>
and substitute <Filename> with the file you want to edit. Anyway, if you plan to do more with Linux, I highly recommend reading a good book. Check out your local library!

Thans again. I now know that I have a grphical console and I've tried the jpico thing but I don't know what to write in it, probably due to ignorrance. As for the network none of those commands are working but I have discovered one thing: in the PS3 networking settings there is the option to use or not use "proxy". It is set to "do not use", could that be the obstacle that I should overcome by changing its setting?

Furthermore the it seems to be missing "a codec" in order to play movies and music files. Perhaps it is something I should download when the internet is up and running?

Once again, thanks.
