what the best way for me to install linux?
what the best way for me to install linux? –
I have CECHGxx, so I cant use the otherOS++ because I dont have the 16MB Nor. I'm on 3.41 OFW is there anyway to downgrade to 3.15? (I think that is the last FW before otherOS was taking out)
I downgraded to 3.15 and now I want to install linux, what distro should I use. I havent messed around with linux
much, been reading alot today and want to play around but not sure whats the best distro to use.

There really is no best distro. You have to figure that out yourself. Everyone prefers different flavors of linux. Asking people to tell you what the best distro is, is like asking people which browser is the best, or which OS is the best between linux, Windows, and Mac OSX. There's just no right answer.
But here are suggestions on distro's you can try. But the best is up to your own personal needs.
Ubuntu is arguably the most user friendly, but it also means it's the most horrible when it comes to features for power users. Likewise Gentoo and Archlinux are the most horrible distro's when it comes to user friendliness but they are amazing when it comes to power users.
thanks for the info, I'll look into those.
Also would it be better to upgrade to 3.41/3.55 and install AsbestOs or use the otherOS option in 3.15. I dont need to play games, I have 2 others for that. Just fixed this with reflow and wanna play around with it.
AsbestOS would be better. So yea upgrade. You can then use Graf's kernel after everything is installed. Which will give you more performance than the 3.15 OtherOS option.

Also put your issue in that thread as well please. They can better help you as I haven't messed with bootOS or AsbestOS in awhile.
Thanks seems to have worked, going through partition settings now

The disadvantage is that the OS will run fairly slowly and you will not get much idea of the performance or flexibility of Linux. Live disks are included with every Linux distribution, and are also provided on the cover of just about any computing and PC magazine.
