Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 Builds Now Available for PS3 Linux
Recently some new Ubuntu builds have been made available for PS3 Linux. Although Ubuntu does not officially support it, the PS3 versions are maintained through community support.
PlayStation 3 Desktop CD: For Sony PlayStation 3 systems. (This defaults to installing Ubuntu permanently, since there is usually not enough memory to try out the full desktop system and run the installer at the same time. An alternative boot option to try Ubuntu without changing your computer is available.)
I merged your post above xmen3.. is this new though? I see like daily /20090506/ and /20090507/ etc.
If this is news it probably should be submitted in the Site News, however, if this is just daily builds then ya.. not that 'newsworthy' I suppose.
In any case, I +Rep'd ya!
9.04 released 6 may 2009
9.10 released 8 may 2009... something don't work
dunno much about linux... and daily builds... don't waste your time installing this. Failed to install it 'cause no valid kenel found... Anyway i was looking for a new version of ubuntu cause i did'nt wanted to install the old version to update later...
I've 1 desktop and a laptop with XP and i've tried 2 years ago with linux on ps3 and then left.
just wanted to try now if its better... the whole story
wow karmic koala 9.10 works for basic system installation... but fails on software install...
so just kernel with no windows interface... next one maybe works
anyway theres no warranty they say...

I don't know about you Xmen but I installed it by updating from 8.10 so I don't really know which version is working right now! Anyway, the first thing to do after you install (successfully) is to enable PS3VRAM swap because it's waaay faster with this -> http://psubuntu.com/wiki/PSUbuntuGPU.
@PS3 News: Yes this should be submitted to site news, final build is already out! didn't saw anything about UBUNTU Jaunty in the news section!
P.S.: Another linux distro that has OFFICIAL SUPPORT for PS3 is Fedora 11 which is due in less than one month! Keep in mind that Ubuntu does not OFFICIALLY support the PS3 but the PS3 version is maintained through comunity support...
