Open Source PS3 Toolchain Development Begins


Sponsored Links
203w ago - The first version of an open source toolchain for PS3 is available today courtesy of ooPo, meaning a possibility to create PlayStation 3 hombrew without requiring the Sony SDK.

Download: Open Source PS3 Toolchain

From the included ReadMe file:

What does this do?

This program will automatically build and install a compiler and other tools used in the creation of homebrew software for the Sony PlayStation 3 videogame system.

How do I use it?

1) Set up your environment by installing the following software:

autoconf, automake, bison, flex, gcc, make, makeinfo, patch, subversion, wget

2) Add the following to your login script:

export PS3DEV=/usr/local/ps3dev
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/ppu/bin
export PATH=$PATH:$PS3DEV/spu/bin

3) Run the toolchain script:

./toolchain.sh

Where do I go from here?

Fantastic!

I wonder if you can only build apps for the GameOS with this, or an actual Custom Firmware?

Awesome contribution. This should turn the PS3 into a Popcorn Hour box with the right homebrew!

Isn't this the same toolchain that it was available ages ago?
That toolchain from your hyperlink can be used for generating linux executables for OtherOS (lv1).

With this toolkit (compiler, linker) you can create ps3 (lv2) executables, by using the C sources and header files from the (official) ps3 sdk.

just do step 2, and whether reboot or execute the commands to extend your path-variable.

maybe the path has to exist and has to be writable. i dont know the error, if it is not so.
have done step2
rebooted
still getting error

Probably something stupidly simple that I have overlooked.
