Reddit: How to automatically mount during system start-up?

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 05:07:01 PM

Whenever I install a new rpm package, I type below command for permission.

mount -w -o remount,rw /

mount -w -o remount,rw /opt/

What does these commands even mean? Can't I mount / and /opt/ during the start up itself, instead of typing each time? I am new to the Linux.

Reddit: [Help] How do I re-install the PS3's system software and remove Linux?

Wednesday 7th of January 2015 03:51:29 PM

I recently acquired an old FAT PS3 from my engineering department's recycling center, it was "freecycle" thing. I was really excited cause I haven't had a console since my PS2 broke and I'm too broke to buy one with tuition bills and other stuff... but I digress when I took it to my friends place and plugged all the cables for the PS3, upon startup we found that it was running some version of Linux.

I thought I could restore the PS3 system software by formatting the PS3's hard drive using my laptop and putting it back into the PS3 then trying to run an update via flashdrive. But Linux keeps showing up at startup, with the last few prompts being:

***udhcpc (v.1.3.2) started Sending discover... Sending discover... Sending discover... don't understand action "leasefail" No lease, failing kboot:

so I think Linux is set as the default OS.

I was wondering how I can re-install the PS3 system software and remove Linux entirely. Honestly I have no idea what to do, please any help will be greatly appreciated.
