F9 installer misses PS3's internal hard disk drive
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:42 EST
Description of problem:
The F9 installer misses PLAYSTATION3's internal hard disk drive, so we can't
install F9 onto the internal drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
- F9 Alpha
- rawhide 2008.02.04
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert an optical disc of the F9 installer into PS3.
2. Boot PS3.
3. Boot the installer (e.g. type 'linux video=720p' on kboot prompt).
4. Follow the installer's instruction.
/dev/ps3da doesn't appear in the list of target drives.
/dev/ps3da appears in the list.
We use hal for device detection now and hal doesn't see the ps3 disks based on
what I remember Jesse saying last week.
Please attach output of 'tree /sys'.

I did this with the installation DVD-ROM of F9 Alpha.
FYI support for this was already committed upstream; it'll land in Fedora once I
get around to putting new packages in.
Confirmed fix, an install of rawhide to the PS3 worked.
