293w ago - To quote, courtesy of Slashdot (linked above) today: The PlayStation 3 has recently seen an explosion of releases of emulators and games for the [Register or Login to view links] distro on Sony's PS3 console.

Once you have installed Yellow Dog Linux you then have the ability to try out numerous applications and emulators including MAME, SNES, Amiga, Dos, Commodore and Atari emulators (that's the tip of the iceberg) and such games as Quake 2, Duke Nukem 3D, Hexen 2 and Alephone.

I've been running a lot of games and emu's on my YDL 6.1 w/Fluxbox with out much problems. Go to the official YDL forums or ps3bodega forums. There are a lot of helpful Linux users there to help you out.

Sony put out a patch so that the PS3 in Linux can no longer access the RSX (the PS3s GPU) therefore its no longer possible. But I dont remember it being possible in the first place but tbh I didnt really look into N64 emulation.

Back to the topic: This is really nice, I'll have to check these out once I have YDL

Using Snes GTK 1.51 games are very playable 25-30FPS even in 720p fullscreen! Just change your emulator!

i can barely get snes to run at a decent frame-rate, i couldn't imagine n64. not without access to the gpu
