    This weekend French PlayStation 3 developer dudu.clx has shared a PS3A Linux Box v1 PS3 Install Script for OtherOS++ CFW users and some videos documenting the process below.

    To quote, roughly translated: To make installing Linux on PS3 simpler and faster, I decided to create the PS3A linux-box . Run the script, and off you go!

    The linux installer for PS3 OtherOS++ consists of a series of scripts that will run from petitboot once otheros + + partitions created correctly (success create_hdd_region.sh). It will be regularly updated to correct, improve some support and offer still more versions of Linux.

    Requirements for PS3a Linux-box (roughly translated):
    • Have a PS3 with a CFW OtherOS++
    • Having set the hard disk
    • Restart the PS3 petitboot.

    I applaud the effort that goes into something like this, but I think linux on the ps3 sucked from sony and still sucks, just not as much.

    I guess some people just want to be able to say they did it... but indeed, most who use Linux will do it on a PC not from a PS3.

    I totally understand the desire to do it for the sake of it, but it really looks as though a full linux install with decent performance is simply not possible on the ps3's ever aging hardware.
