Ah, here we go again with the "toy" comments ...
That sort of comment is no better than the OP's and appears only to be meant to escalate the problem, or get the thread closed as was done here
. I don't think I'll bite this time, either.
There is something of a valid point in this ... the Fedora 8 (and Fedora 7) release notes say:
"Sony PlayStation 3. For installation on PlayStation 3, first update to firmware 1.60 or later. The "Other OS" boot loader must be installed into the flash, following the instructions at http://www.playstation.com/ps3-openplatform/manual.html
. A suitable boot loader image is located on the Fedora 8 install media. Once the boot loader is installed, the PlayStation 3 should boot from the Fedora install media. Select the linux64 from the graphical boot menu. For more information on Fedora and the PlayStation3 or Fedora on PowerPC in general, join the Fedora-PPC mailing list or the #fedora-ppc channel on FreeNode."
So one would assume that it will work since it is listed under supported hardware and there's no statement saying that it won't boot at this time. And bug reports were posted in the proper location on Bugzilla in addition to being mentioned here (regarding the test releases). And I can understand there being some frustration after trying 7.91, 7.92, and now F8, reporting problems, and still not having it work.
Anyway, I have a lot of respect for everyone involved here and I hate to see this tone on the forum.
