Investigating how RSX access will work. It's definitely possible but it might end up very different from desktop Linux 3D as we know it.

Project: OurOS Bootloader for PS3 Linux in Development

300°
281w ago - Similar to both the Petitboot Bootloader and pdaXrom-NG Bootloader for PS3 Linux, the OurOS project in development is a Linux-based user interface for the PS3.

To quote: It's goals are to provide an easy to install and easy to use graphical environment for the OtherOS platform.

Easy to install means a user will just have to install an otheros.bld file using the XMB and have a storage device available (USB storage device or OtherOS partitioned internal HDD).

Easy to use means no messing around with package managers or command lines, since we know what the hardware is we can forgo a lot of the usual linux setup tasks. And since we're only targeting certain applications we do not need the normal linux style package management system and can use something simple and self contained.

From a developers perspective OurOS will provide a consistent environment to target, and will also come with a ready to use toolchain.

The only download to date is a [Register or Login to view links], however,...

OtherOS OpenSUSE 11.1 Bootloader for PS3 Linux Available

200°
295w ago - I came across this site looking for Linux, but this looked like it would be better perhaps.

Hardware Requirements
• A computer to download and copy files on to media.
• Playstation3 with: USB Keyboard and Mouse (A Wireless USB Keyboard & Mouse is even better)
• Any of the following recording media: USB Flash or HD drive, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, BD-R, or BD-RE disc. If the PS3 has memory card slots: Memory Stick, SD memory card, or CompactFlash.

Note: Just as with any system, having both a keyboard and mouse simplifies things a lot. But it is possible to install with only a mouse, and possibly even simpler with only a keyboard!

Tip: With only a mouse it is possible to copy-paste characters from Help tabs.

Instructions
Download the PPC edition of OpenSUSE and burn it to a DVD or CD media using your favorite burning tool.

Preparing the PS3
Note: Updating your PS3 to the latest firmware is recommended before proceeding
