Kernel 2.6.23 installation



Hi,
I've installed the following in my PS3/60GB:

1. Fedora 7(ppc64) 2.6.21-1.3194
2. CELL-Linux-CL_20071023-ADDON with kernel 2.6.23
   -installed using:
    cd /media/addon/target
    rpm -ihv --force *.rpm

    results:
    all rpms were installed ok but initrd.img-2.6.23 is not copied to /boot so I've copied it manually.

3. lvm2-2.02.24-1.fc7.ps3.ppc.rpm
4. created new initrd after loading lvm2 above.
   mkinitrd initrd-2.6.23-xy.img 2.6.23

Booting with kernel 2.6.21-1.3194 is OK.
Booting with kernel 2.6.23 is not OK.

yaboot.conf:

# yaboot.conf generated by anaconda

boot=/dev/sda
init-message=Welcome to Fedora!nHit  for boot options

partition=1

        initrd=/initrd-2.6.23-xy.img
        append="video=720p rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/1"

image=/vmlinuz-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7
        label=linux-21

        initrd=/initrd-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7.img
        append="video=720p rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/1"

Boot problem:

1. booting problem with kernel 2.6.23 where it says "unable to find device-mapper major/minor"

Trying to solve:

1. PS3: Shutdown Fedora 7 still needs to press/hold ps3 power button.

2. boot-game-os is also not working.

3. trying to have a full screen without black borders around the picture.

Need your help to overcome these problems. Thanks.
