Video: LEU-Loader OtherOS v1.0 for PlayStation 3 Linux

246w ago - This seems like intresting stuff going on.. LEU-Loader OtherOS v1.0 for PlayStation 3 Linux.

To quote, roughly translated: Some time ago we started this project, known as LEU (Launcher Emulators for USB), as you know I care for every detail to make it pleasant and comfortable to use.

To start LEU Linux as it is you need a BootLoader.. usually used in terminal mode type which makes text more compliacado use.

In our case this is, graphics adapters to the environment we want to LEU to reach wider audience and that people lose that fear of the word Linux.

BootLoader has very interesting things like:





• Power-Track Initiative SixAxis
• Recognizes LEUs icon which will be installed (USB)
• Recognizes disc, marking an installation disk icon
• Recognizes HDD with Linux installation
• And finally we have a very cool key indicators from the new XMB that is created from the code Petitboot.

Get the updated plugins and copy them to your "IDAplugins" directory to install them.

For those who don't know, level-1 syscalls are used to call hypervisor functions. On a PS3 the hypervisor is known as as "lv1″ (level1) since it is the lowest level that runs directly on top of the hardware.

The operating system is executed on top of this and is known as "lv2″ (level2). The two common operating systems are GameOS which PS3 games run on, and OtherOS which is usually used to run linux.

Since both OSes run on top of the same lv1 hypervisor, they use...
