[PS3] Ubuntu won't detect CD-ROM drive?


Just some dood
I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 on my PS3 and it says it won't detect a CD-ROM drive... WTH? Is this supposed to happen? It didn't happen other times i tried to install it....

Thanks in advance,

Ubuntu isn't know for their excellent drivers support...I advise you to try out Fedora(ppc), that one is known to be good, else ask Hellcat, I think he has a linux setup on his ps3.
Apparently, Yellow Dog Linux (Based off Fedora) is a much better OS for the PS3. It's optimised for the CELL BE, and they target the PS3 platform specifically. I would assume that would have the best support for the PS3. I haven't tried it out personally, but it may be worth a look.
