    Video: PS3A Linux Box v1 PS3 Install Script for OtherOS++ CFW

    This weekend French PlayStation 3 developer dudu.clx has shared a PS3A Linux Box v1 PS3 Install Script for OtherOS++ CFW users and some videos documenting the process below.

    To quote, roughly translated: To make installing Linux on PS3 simpler and faster, I decided to create the PS3A linux-box . Run the script, and off you go!

    The linux installer for PS3 OtherOS++ consists of a series of scripts that will run from petitboot once otheros + + partitions created correctly (success It will be regularly updated to correct, improve some support and offer still more versions of Linux.

    Requirements for PS3a Linux-box (roughly translated):
    • Have a PS3 with a CFW OtherOS++
    • Having set the hard disk
    • Restart the PS3 petitboot.


    • Boot into PS3′s Petitboot
    • Go to the shell and type:

    Code: wget
    chmod a + x
    sh ./
    Changelog for v1:
    • Installer available in three languages, English, French, Spanish.
    • Basic Installation debian and ubuntu.
    • Install the choice of pre-compiled kernel or compile it yourself.
    • Choice of 4 modes of starts for Debian and Ubuntu (normal, full_HD, normal + wifi + wifi full_HD).
    • Choice of light configuration, or custom for Debian and Ubuntu (and many office applications).
    • Choice of evolution of Debian MintPPC.
    • Choice between versions for ubuntu jaunty, maverick, maverick, maverick and maverick.
    • Choosing to migrate to Ubuntu or Kubuntu Xubuntu (when choosing his office).
    • Configuring the wifi for FAT (ubuntu and debian).
    • Installing Fedora Core 12 with Cell SDK pre -install (text mode only).

    Coming soon:
    • Fixed script and successful installation of Gentoo.
    • Added post-install Debian for Red Ribbon.
    • Added installation of Mandriva, Arch Linux, OpenSUSE, OSX Leopard.
    • Added a script configuration of Fedora Core 12.
    • Choice of installing the IBM Cell SDK for debian and ubuntu.

    • Integration into petitboot.

    And instructions! Just enter a choice from a list, the rest just happens! To illustrate how it works, I’ve made ​​two videos: Installing ubuntu hardy in 13 minutes, via telnet:

    I applaud the effort that goes into something like this, but I think linux on the ps3 sucked from sony and still sucks, just not as much.

    I guess some people just want to be able to say they did it... but indeed, most who use Linux will do it on a PC not from a PS3.

    I totally understand the desire to do it for the sake of it, but it really looks as though a full linux install with decent performance is simply not possible on the ps3's ever aging hardware.
