YDL 6 & PS3 Wireless "Networking" bs...
Hi guys... I have the latest ps3 firmware (2.10) and the latest yellow dog linux (6) (ydl 6).
I have a recurring problem. I've downloaded the whole damn iso three times now and it's nearly 4 GB. I've wasted two blank dvd's on 5.0 and 5.02. There were known issues in both of those versions with the ps3's internal wireless card.
However, YDL 6 was supposed to have resolved ALL of those damn issues. This is strike 3 for me. I am SO frustrated because of all the patience and effort I've put into this entire matter. I simply cannot afford to buy a new pc right now so I have decided to invest more of my time in looking for a cure.
I simply cannot connect wirelessly.
I tried deleting everything from networking hardware. I go to add new hardware and it says "Playstation Gigabit" instead of "Sony Playstation Wireless" like the YDL (worthless) "guide" says it should. That sounds to me that it's referring to the internal ethernet card. I know it has an error before it completes booting to the login screen. I think it has something to do with a fatal gelic module error or something and I believe that is directly related to networking.
Can anyone please tell me if they have any ideas on this? Everything that I have searched on is very old and outdated (references YDL versions 5.x).
I am ready to pull my hair out.
