45w ago - Following up on his previous update, today PlayStation 3 developer r04drunner has announced that a new online update for Red Ribbon GNU / Linux on the PS3 entertainment system is now available which includes a new logout window, theme and a bug fix when shutting down or rebooting the console with details below.
To quote from SubJunk on the PlayStation 3 Media Server v1.50.1 Build 61 changes:
This build functions as the bleeding-edge testing version of PMS. Here you can find features and bugfixes before they are added to the official version, and sometimes ones that never will be. Using this build is mostly a way for you to see the newest developments and to help us by providing feedback.
Changelog 1.50.1 Build 61:
Switched from using Git source back to SVN
Synchronised with official r1024 from r1014
Updated MediaInfo for Windows and OS X to 0.7.53 from 0.7.52
Updated MPlayer and MEncoder for OSX to SB22, in sync with the Windows version.
139w ago - Today Jacob Pennock has shared some PS3 demo video footage of a PlayStation Move Linux mouse driver he built based off Sony's upcoming Move.Me library.
Also below is a Gestural Interaction PS3 demo video, essentially a wand-based Linux Media Center using the PS3 Move controller.
To quote from his blog (linked above): A couple weeks ago at the game developers conference Sony announced a new product called moved.me which is basically a C library that allows you to connect the move controller to your computer.
Is currently in closed beta and I just got access to it this past Thursday. I spent my weekend playing with it and so far I've built a Linux mouse driver.
Since the Sony software is still closed I'm going to hang on to the source code at the moment, but hopefully by the time it goes public I will be up to polish this up into a nice wand gesture-based Linux Media Center.
