Article: PS3 Linux RSX Driver Released –
Now this is great news. Thanks Gitbrew for all your hard work. I have read around on many sites and the concession is that this is not an actual driver but a Linux kernal module. So only when a dev builds on it would it become as useful as a fully working driver. But will enhance Linux usability. And no, you cant run hardcore games within Linux either. So this is not user/noob friendly. Distro's like red Ribbon would have to be updated in order for it to be useful.
this is one step closer to me wanting to install linux
CECHA01 (500GB Cobra 7/ REBUG REX 4.46 XMBM+, multiMAN/webMAN XMB, Showtime,)
they should have a step closer to CFW 3.70 or any method to play newest games pity on them
but their main reason was to bring OtherOS which they did .
Sooo basically this gives us better graphics processing support in linux? Cool I don't use Linux on my PS3, but i may if it become more on a complete experience.
The RSX driver was leaked a while ago and is used in Red Ribbon Linux and let me tell you it's FAST.

You'd have to wait for someone to code that and find out. Obviously with more GPU power, a lot more things cna be done. But things also need to be adapted to the RSx i believe, seeing that the PS3 isn't setup internally like a PC.

this topic made me think of something, ok so linux on ps3, with now rsx avalible for use, humm, ps move, Dolphin Emu OMG WII HD
@brakk3n Do you have proof that the "driver" is implemented in Red Ribbon. Not looking for a flame, just amazed i missed it. I have been waiting for RSX prior to installing Linux. Can you elaborate please. @amp2006 Nice recovery on your post. @konio38 Possibilities are all their but would take a advanced Linux dev to pull off.
