Fedora Tips

Exiting Xserver to bash = Ctrl+Alt+Backspace

Setting correct resolution:
Use the command ps3videomode -v ## replacing ## with a number related to your resolution.
For people using ps3′s on 720p displays (via HDMI), use 11.
Remember that the default sets this as automatic (0)
the options are :

YUV60Hz
480i – 1
480p – 2
720p – 3
1080i – 4
1080p – 5

YUV50Hz
576i – 14
576p – 13
720p – 12
1080i – 11
1080p – 10

RGB60Hz
480i – 33
480p – 34
720p – 35
1080i – 36
1080p – 37

RGB50Hz
576i – 38
576p – 39
720p – 40
1080i – 41
1080p – 42

VESA
WXGA – 11
SXGA – 12
WUXG – 13

Once you’ve found the resolution that works best on your monitor you can (from either the os itself or bash), open /etc/kboot.conf and change :
linux=’/boot/vmlinux-2.6.16 initrd=/boot/initrd.img’
to
linux=’/boot/vmlinux-2.6.16 initrd=/boot/initrd.img video=ps3fb:mode:##’

Handling cdrom/blu-ray device
If you want to access a disk from your ps3′s blu-ray drive, pop it in and from terminal, type :
mount /mnt/cdrom
or
umount /mnt/cdrom
to unmount

Having a graphical login (xserver starting automatically)
If you want xserver to start automatically when you boot linux, you need to edit /etc/inittab and find the line :
id:3:initdefault:
and change the 3 to a 5, and save.
It will then display this on next reboot.
