Anyone here installed Linux in their PS3?
I've installed Ubuntu 7.10 last night, yet to play around with it yet. The streamyx is very slow, I have to leave it overnight for the upgrade from 7.04.
In 7.04, I've this problem "Cannot mount volume" error when try to read from DVD-R. Anyone having the same error and does anyone have any solution to it? icon_question.gif

I have not tried it myself because i have yet to buy a PS3, hehe, but here's an alternate version of Ubuntu 7.10 for the PS3. Its a custom image said to have fixed some bugs with Ubuntu on the PS3. If youre successful in installing this version please tell me cause im getting a ps3 soon and i plan to install this version. Good luck.

After seeing someone using PS3 as a server! I also felt like buying a PS3 to function as a server since the price will be droping when the 40G come into the market!

Hope Sony will open up the graphic drive for the linux so next time can play PC game on PS3 too!

the Ubuntu 7.04 are up & running now in my PS3. Will try to solve the CD/DVD ROM mounting problem to night, maybe by editing some setting in the fstab folder...

Yellow Dog Linux 6.0 for PS3 released

user posted image

Terrasoft has released a new version of its Yellow Dog Linux (YDL) operating system, which includes a new kernel version as well as the E17 desktop environment.

Terrasoft promises that YDL 6.0 will deliver "enterprise quality for the home user" as it is based on "CentOS with select Fedora 7 components". The operating system is a solid upgrade for Playstation users over version 5.0.2, which used the Linux kernel 2.6.22 rc4. Now in version 2.6.23, the software supports the Playstation 3, Apple PowerPC G4 and G5 as well as IBM's System p series JS2x, 510, 520 and 540.

Included in the package are the desktops E17 and Gnome, with an option to run KDE; additionally, YDL 6.0 comes with Gnash, Ekiga VoIP, Pidgin IM/IRC, and the Fluendo (MP3) codec installer as well as the Cell SDK v3.0. Supported audio features include audio, 802.11b Airport auto-configuration (Extreme with manual configuration), Sony's Sixaxis controller, as well as cellphone internet connections. Following the basic install, users can add the Firefox web browser, the Thunderbird email client, Open Office, gThumb and GIMP, RythmBox Music Player, games, multimedia applications, and "a suite of personal accessories," Terrasoft said.

YDL 6.0 can be installed on top of the PS3's GameOS and therefore enables PS3 users to run both YDL and the game platform. The basic toolset to partition the PS3's hard drive is already included with the PS3.

previously YDL 5.0.2 does have some problems when i installed it. Hoped this time the new YDL can support WPA wireless connection and also play divx/xvid files and mkv files without problems.. tongue.gif YDL does run smoother than others Linux for PS3 though..
