I'm new to this forum and just tried to install YDL with a DVD I made, for some reason I keep getting an error saying something about input/output error. I burnt the DVD with the software that came with my computer. The keyboard and mouse work fine, but everytime I try to install with either install or installtext it shows a bunch of numbers with input/output error at the bottom.
Could someone please help me. My ISO was about 3.2~3.3gb, but I read that some others are 3.5, could this be the problem. What is the fastest way I could redownload the ISO, all servers seem to be going very slowly, like 6kb/s.
Since it is free you should be able to find it through the net. Read up on it if you are unfamiliar. My bet is that the file wasn't downloaded incorrectly though, it's either the medium (The brand of DVD basically), or you are using a cruddy burning program like Easy CD/DVD Creator 7.
I had to try two different disks with Fedora and it did work, I am now running YDL 5 and that had no problems once I burned it to that type of disk. Try Using Alcohol 70% or 120% (or nero) even if you have to use the trial.
kingquake i had a little trouble with media and my ps3 with ydl. anyways try putting the install dvd in the ps3 before you tell it to boot to other os and leave it in there when you turn it on and it boots. it worked for me.
im really new to all of this kind of stuff but im really into it. ive been readingg all of your posts but i cant seem to find out the solution to my problem. nobody has posted it quite yet so here it is... i get to the "kboot" section in linux and the dvd i made is already in the ps3 and i type install and after that it does something wierd... first it says "mounting..." then kboot replaces the word mounting and it says "kboot..." and after the 3 dots it has a lower case g and then it goes to a lower case q.
it switches back and forth from g to q and after like 10 seconds it stays with g and goes to the next line and repeats that whole process... it fills up the screen with "kboot...g" line after line of it and im not quite sure what to do... can anyone lend me a hand please i would really appreciate it.
