Hello fellow crunchers!

I got my PS3 yesterday, and the first thing was to install Yellow Dog Linux and BOINC on it.

Today I wanted to play a game, but if I go to Applications/Applications/System Tools/Boot PS3 Game OS, I get an error message like the following>

Application run error
Enlightment was unable to run the application
boot-game-os
The application failed to start

I\'m not a Linux Guru and I don\'t know what to do now...
How can I boot the game OS to play games again?

Thanks for your answers,
Stefan

Hmmm, I did now a Software update of YDL, and if I go now to Applications/Applications/System tools/Boot PS3 Game OS - nothing happens...

No error message, and the Game OS doesn´t boot...

Has someone an idea what I can try to boot the game OS again?

You can forget my question - I just found out how to boot the PS3 OS...

Ok... :-)

If you boot Linux, after a few seconds there\'s a prompt to enter boot options.
You\'ll see:

kboot:

If you don\'t enter something, Linux will be booted.
But if you enter

boot-game-os

the PS3 OS will be booted...

I don\'t know if there\'s an easier way to boot the PS3 OS, but that\'s what worked for me...
