Installing Ubuntu on PS3
Note: Linux support on PS3 (that does not use OtherOS) is experimental. Whilst there is very little chance of damaging your console the current implementation of Linux may be unstable or include bugs.
After following this tutorial you will:
Have Ubuntu installed on your PS3.
Have performed a few optimizations to to improve performance.
Installed the LXDE Desktop Environment to improve performance.
2 Initial Setup
3 Using PS3 VRAM as SWAP
4 Installing LXDE
5 Logging into LXDE
A PS3 (Fat or Slim) with kmeaw's 3.55 CFW installed (other firmware versions may work but have not been tested).
10GB of free space on either internal or external drive.
A wired internet connection (wireless support will come soon).
A HDTV or PC Monitor (SDTV support will come soon).
A USB mouse & Keyboard.
A basic understanding of installing homebrew & FTP'ing files.
AsbestOS Installer 1.5.
Ubuntu Image Files: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. (Join with HJSplit or extract directly with 7-Zip Split & Concat for Mac)
 Initial Setup
Either extract the Ubuntu image files to the root of an external drive or FTP them to the root of the PS3 internal drive (dev_hdd0) (Yes, the files should extract to around 10GB. This is a virtual disc image so you will not have to do any partitioning).
Install the lv2patcher v9 & AsbestOS Installer packages.
Run AsbestOS Installer. (If you get any error messages, delete AsbestOS Installer, re-install & try again).
Once complete press X to return to the XMB.
You should have a Linux option. Select it.
Lots of text should appear on the screen. After 30 seconds you should be greeted by the Ubuntu login screen.
Select the user 'ps3' and type the password 'ps3'.
Congratulations! Ubuntu is installed and you are now logged in. You should now follow the instructions below to dramatically improve the performance.

I have given you the posts to read and follow if you had followed them instead of pm'ing me with questions that have already been answred you would have linux installed so again
TO INSTALL OTHER Os READ AND FOLLOW http://7track.org/~glevand/public/IN...OTHEROS_ON_HDD
TO INSTALL LINUX READ PS3:Linux - Wikibrew scroll down a little for the UBUNTU giude
The Good people at gitbrew must have spent a lot of time writing these tuts for the linux bit of it you can even just copy and paste 100% of the linux guide even an infant can follow
i followed the ubuntu guide on gitbrew to a T and i always freeze on "system is going down now..." in petitboot. anyway, the debian one works perfectly fine, so i just use debian, not much different from ubuntu really anyways.
