I just got done installing Gentoo on my friends ps3 but I am having a slight problem. I can't seem to get kboot to read my new kboot.conf file. I have the file in /etc/kboot.conf, and it works but I have to load it manually every time I boot, like this:

Code:


kboot:  mount /dev/ps3da1 /mnt/tmp
kboot:  cp /mnt/tmp/etc/kboot.conf /etc/kboot.conf
kboot:  umount /mnt/tmp
kboot:  kboot



If I do that it will load my kboot.conf file and eveything is fine, but it's a PITA to do that everytime I boot.

So how can I fix this permanently?


Also, is it possible to have kboot display a grub-style menu with selectable options for stuff like kernel/resolution/boot-game-os ?

You know, I swear I marked that partition as bootable, but apparently Gentoo disagreed. :oops:

So it boots fine now, but I would still appreciate if anyone could answer my second question about having a grub-type menu.

And why does it always boot in 480i until my kboot.conf options get loaded?

The 480i bit is something kboot does. You could always rebuild kboot if this bugs you but it aint worth it.

also, please put solved on this topic so people can learn from you.

I was hoping that would be something easy to do, but oh well.

Thanks!
