To quote: This update has been designed Red Ribbon LXDE 14.03 and RC 7. It includes the following changes:

  • Iceweasel (Firefox) updated to the 30 release.
  • Added a new version of the Red Ribbon theme.
  • Systemd is now the system management daemon.
  • The "Logout" window, the "System settings" window, the "Petitboot setup" tool and the "Video mode setup" tool were migrated to the latest GTK 3 libraries.
  • All the available updates from Debian Jessie.

You need to connect the PS3 to the internet, open a lxterminal and download the file:

Then, you must execute it:

And wait until finished. Then, you must logout and login again.

This update will be included on the next release of the LiveCD.

If while executing it asks:

You are attempting to install a kernel image (version 3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686) However, the directory /lib/modules/3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686/kernel still exists. If this directory belongs to a previous linux-image-3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686 package, and if you have deselected some modules, or installed standalone modules packages, this could be bad.

If /lib/modules/3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686/kernel belongs to an old install of linux-image-3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686, then this is your last chance to abort the installation of this kernel image (nothing has been changed yet).

If you know what you are doing, and if you feel that this image should be installed despite this anomaly, Please answer n to the question.

Otherwise, I suggest you move /lib/modules/3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686/kernel out of the way, perhaps to /lib/modules/3.12.6-red-ribbon-i686.kernel.old or something, and then try re-installing this image.

Stop install since the kernel-image is already installed? You must answer NO.

This update will be included on the next release of the LiveCD.

Bare in mind the following, to install it you have to choose a CFW which includes OtherOS (patched Sony) or OtherOS++ which has extended functionality.

For those unaware, Red Ribbon GNU / Linux is a PPC64 GNU / Linux distribution with support for Cell / BE, designed for Sony PS3. It is based on Debian GNU/Linux, completely free and open source software. No proprietary source of any kind is used in this distribution.

To quote: Hi! I have published Red Ribbon GNU/Linux LXDE 14.03.

Red Ribbon LXDE 14.03 is based on Debian Jessie and It includes the following changes:

  • Kernel 3.12.6 with the Graf_chokolo's, Marcan's and Gitbrew's patches.
  • New version of the installer with some features added and some bugs fixed.
  • New version of the Red Ribbon theme.
  • Iceweasel (Firefox) updated to the 27 release.
  • Blueman is now the bluetooth manager.
  • Added the SMTube application to play videos from Youtube.

I believe that Red Ribbon GNU/Linux is already a mature distribution and I've decided that the version will be based on the publication date, using the year followed by the month, like other distributions.

Also, I'm working in others Red Ribbon flavors based on others desktops, so I've included the desktop name on the release name.
