which configuration file for ps3 ?


debian-installer complain about missing bootloader and/or of a conf entry in yaboot.conf for ps3 hardware

but ps3 don't need a bootloader, it use petitboot[1] as 'other OS' system on playstation3 , pre-Slim, but it needs an conf entry in a file such 'kboot.conf'
or yaboot.conf[2]

an entry line in yaboot.conf works too, but that imply installing yaboot , which
is of any good on ps3, as ps3 don't use yaboot mechanism to boot

adding of a kboot.conf file with necessary entries for ps3 will resolve that issue
