The application failed to start.

Try editing your boot-game-os file to reflect the following

Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh

/sbin/other-os-flash-util -b `/sbin/find-other-os-flash` ||
{
        echo "ERROR: can't change boot flag" 2>&1;
        exit 1;
}

reboot


open up a gnome terminal and type su and enter your root password (that's if your not logged in as root already). type

Code: Select all
gedit /sbin/boot-game-os


and just edit it to look like above

Sounds like you probably need to fix your e17 applications menu item ...

Configuration -> Applications Menu

Look for the boot-game-os application (you can use either the left or right side) and double-click on it to open it. Change the executable from boot-game-os to /sbin/boot-game-os

This is assuming that /sbin/boot-game-os works for you in a terminal window...

For me boot-game-os did not work in GNOME, so I just typed /sbin/boot-game-os and it booted fine. Instead of just changing something I will use this instead.

Is there anyway to create a shortcut so I can put a file on my desktop and double click to go to XMB?

Thank You.

Right-click on your desktop, select "Create Launcher", enter whatever you want for the Name, and /sbin/boot-game-os for the Command. Click OK. Done...
