To quote: This is a modified version of Linux or we can say Debian in this case where it will make AsbestOS much more smoother to work with the PS3. Here are the release notes taken from kha0S's official site.
RELEASE NOTES for kha0S Linux Img v3.0 All credits go to Kmeaw and marcan work.
RELEASE NOTES for v3.0
Changed ext4 mount options from default to noatime (decrease IO to disk).

RELEASE NOTES for v.2
Increased size of image to 2G (~800M free!)
Fixed network configuration – dhcp enabled in the right interface
Changed Debian repository / added contrib and non-free archives
Upgraded Debian release to testing (wheezyyyyyy)
Installed x11vnc – allow remote access to an existing X session
Installed ftp server (proftpd) – login with ps3 user
I tried 3 versions of Linux on PS3 and this is the only one that worked. I first tried v2 and it worked and I just realised this V3 is the same thing. It's debian and its a stripped version. It's the bare bones of Linux but it works.
Not sure how much as I didn't give it a good go as I don't like it. I'm still waiting for a good release of Ubuntu.
How do you install Linux on the PS3? Do I have to do it via a virtual pc on the PC and copy the image to the PS3? OR can I install it from disc like YDL?
