What is my localhost login right after I installed YDL?
I don\'t remember providing that during the setup process.
I know I did enter a password.

Also, how do I switch it back to the game OS?
ps3-boot-game-os command doesn\'t work for me!!

Well, normaly you choose a username during the installation, but I had the same with my last PS3 where I could only install in text mode...

Hmmm... Do you see a Graphical interface to log in or is it someting Terminal like?
If you are in a Terminal you can Login as \"root\" with the password you provided during the install, and add a user with:

useradd username

passwd password

After the new useraccount is created, you can login as the user and then enter startx to start the GUI...

[EDIT]
To reboot to the game OS you have to type boot-game-os at the kboot prompt! ;)

Yes, I followed the guide, and it says to installtext (which is install in text mode).
I tried not to type that in initial install, the GUI showed up, but I get some error after I click on the first \"next\" button.

I am using terminal like (like DOS)

I have resetted my PS3 last night. Now is YDL still there?

I will try that today.

Yep, it should still be there...

If you try it, boot YDL and wait until you come to the DOS like thing.
There you can login with
root
and your password. (Don´t be scared, you don´t see the password while typing, but it really works! ;) )

Then you can follow the instructions in my last post to create a user account and start the Graphical user interface...
