Do you have a directory /sys/bus/ps3_system_bus/ ? Or is it called

If the kernel changed the name of the directory in sysfs (as I think it might
have done), then perhaps kudzu's ps3.c needs to be changed to cope.

Completely untested, and nobody's even confirmed what's currently in sysfs (I'm
a few thousand miles from my PS3s):

This should be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
Comment 4 Akenateb 2007-10-24 03:58:08 EDT
Tested with new anaconda:



Nothing again.

I patched 
anaconda-runtime-  &
anaconda- into a 
Fedora-7.92-ppc-DVD.iso by renaming them 
anaconda-runtime- and 
anaconda- and placing them in the /Packages dir on the iso
when I ran the disk with kexec -f --initrd.image.gz --command-line="text" vmlinuz
(to get a text mode install so the buttons aren't off my sdtv screen)
It said it was starting anaconda (filename? I deleted the package on
the disk, yet it started.) 

when anaconda started it failed to detect the hard disk

Kboot seems to mount the disk (although nothing on it). can I send a command
line option to vmlinuz to make it go to kboot's /dev/ps3hd?

Any help would be appreciated
