Slide 15

YDL Installation: Materials Yellow Dog ISO picture DVD YDL establishment direct or another PC with web get to USB console and mouse HDTV associated by 5-part or HDMI or a screen associated by HDMI

Slide 16

YDL Installation: Procedure 1.) Insert YDL DVD into Playstation while the power is on. 2.) Reboot into "Different OS"

Slide 17

YDL Installation: Procedure

Slide 18

YDL Installation: Procedure

Slide 19

YDL Installation: Procedure

Slide 20

YDL Installation: Procedure 3.) Choose determination 480i 720p 1080i 1080p Command Line Installation (Still really simple.) Graphical Installation (Easy!!!)

Slide 21

Slide 24

Get Madagascar Get Subversion (SVN)* From order line: svn co https://rsf.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/rsf/trunk RSFSRC Unpack (tar –xvf … ) *May be incorporated in the event that you select programming bundles amid YDL establishment

Slide 25

Install Madagascar Follow ahay.org walkthrough: http://ahay.org/wiki/Installation One issue experienced: Software included with YDL 6.1 did not have libXaw-devel improvement apparatus. Required for sfpen, xtpen, and so on… (Data shows) Found power pc rendition on the web, establishment finished
