Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 Builds Now Available for PS3 Linux


Sponsored Links
294w ago - 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 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 -> [Register or Login to view links].

@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...

I'm using Ubuntu Jaunty on my PS3 from ALFA 5 stage and it's very very usable, played Wesnoth and Globulation on it with great result and also some SNES games.

The only bug that bothers me is that my bluetooth mouse does not work OOT!
