Linux running on Kmeaw CFW 3.55! (Video)
The recent developments for restoring Linux on the PS3 are heating up and it seems we may have our very missed Linux support back on our PS3s. Kmeaw has released a video of linux running PS3 firmware 3.55, to quote via IRC:
Here is the video link : [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TtgnQDl7pU&feature]YouTube - PS3 Linux[/ame]
kmeaw: it is gentoo
kmeaw: marcanís rootfs
stunt****: does your linux install have access to gameos from within linux and also to all spus?
kmeaw: it doesnít need usb stick
kmeaw: linux has access to all spus
kmeaw: gentoo is running from my laptopís hdd
kmeaw: but if you change your kernel parameters then you can install it on ps3′s hdd like marcan did
Lush: is this a different approach than graf_chokolo?
kmeaw: i donít change VFLASH
GraFfiX: kmeaw:does X launch?
kmeaw: havenít tried yet but I think of a reason why it shouldnít
kmeaw: Xfbdev will definitely work
kmeaw: in this video ps3 boots gentoo from the network via nfs
kmeaw: laptopís harddrive partition is exported using nfs kernel server
GraFfiX: is nfs efficient?
GraFfiX: like speed-wise
kmeaw: yes, i have a home NAS exported via nfs
kmeaw: works faster for me than samba
kmeaw: there are no full support for rsx yet
GraFfiX: kmeaw:do you see any reason why xbmc would not run when we have full rsx?
stunt****: someone has to code a driver for the video
kmeaw: when we have full rsx support in linux drivers, then everything should work
