Yes, but if you have a launch model with 4 USB ports and card readers you need to put linix.img on a Memory Stick Pro. Or wait.
v1.3 is out and linux works from usb on my 60gb fat perfect.
Works pretty well. Got it up and running without to much problem on my 256nand ps3 (had to switch to component cables, couldn't read a damn thing with hdmi). I like that kmeaw went with lxde for the desktop environment (its what I use on my computer). I managed to get internet working just fine. Did some surfing on the web.
Tried installing chromium, forgot that its called chromium-browser and instead installed the game chromium. So I started it up and it started but ran slowly haha. Sadly then I found out there is no ppc build of chromium :(
I wish the image was a bit bigger. 1.1gb isn't big enough. With whats all installed on it there is about ~100mb free to install stuff. I tried resizing the image myself but whenever I got to gdm I couldn't login to ps3 account. Gave me permission errors. Creating a new user also gave me errors when trying to login too. I could still do stuff in the console/terminal area but no gui.
Hopefully someone will explain soon how to create your own linux.img so that we can try different distributions and have the free space that we want.
sorry this is a newbie question but does this allow to still play games or is this a permenant linux computer like the other videos i seen? sorry i just still wanted to play games with my ps3 and no one has made that part clear as far as i have read.
ok stupid question ignore that.
Im trying to use ubuntu because that is what im more comfortable with will that work or not?
I also downloaded and tried to unpackage the debian version of chrome :cry: I also tried to install FreeNX but I think it might already be installed. I'll mess with it more tomorrow...
Anyone know of drivers i can install for better resolution. Screensize is tiny. I'm going to try out vnc for it.
I haven't tried FreeNX before. I hear its pretty good but VNC as always been enough for me. Whenever we find out how to create our own .img files I'll probably get a vnc server running on it to save the the trouble of switching channels on my tv and the keyboard and mouse. ps3 and tv are hooked up to the same tv and I only have one mouse and keyboard. so it kinda sucks for now for me haha.
1.2 works for my 16mb PS3 with the linux.txt :) (cechh04)
and 1.3 too (without replace linux.txt)
having issues getting the internet run here is the steps im following
Accessories---> Root Terminal
when in Terminal, Type ;
find iface eth0 inet dhcp
and auto eth0
change the values to
iface eth1 inet dhcp
and auto eth1
save(ctrl + s)
then in terminal again type;
problem is when i try saving the file it tells me can't write file
I went the lazy route and just enabled root login.
Also, apparently eth0 does not work, it's actually bridged with eth1 aswell, and dhcp does not work for eth1. My etc/network/interfaces file is something like this.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth1 inet static
