Red Ribbon GNU/Linux
30Jan/13Off

New Online Update available

This update has been designed for the releases candidates 6 and 7. It includes the following changes:

  • Added a new logout window that includes the "Boot GameOS" option.
  • Added a new version of the Red Ribbon theme.
  • Fixed the hang problems when shutting down and rebooting.

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

wget http://redribbongnulinux.000webhostapp.com/downloads/online-update-2013-01-30.sh

Then, you must execute it:

sudo sh online-update-2013-01-30.sh

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

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

Note: When you turn off the PS3 if the red light is blinking, don't worry. Now a syscall is used to simulate a problem and to turn off the PS3, but actually everything is ok :).
