Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 Builds Now Available for PS3 Linux


Sponsored Links
307w ago - Recently some new Ubuntu builds have been made available for PS3 Linux. Although Ubuntu does not officially support it, the PS3 versions are maintained through community support.

PlayStation 3 Desktop CD: For Sony PlayStation 3 systems. (This defaults to installing Ubuntu permanently, since there is usually not enough memory to try out the full desktop system and run the installer at the same time. An alternative boot option to try Ubuntu without changing your computer is available.)

Download: Ubuntu 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope) PS3 CD (684MB) / Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala) PS3 CD (644MB)

Those interested in keeping up on the daily builds can check the link above or HERE, and props to both xmen3 and mihaiolimpiu for the news.

I don't know about you Xmen but I installed it by updating from 8.10 so I don't really know which version is working right now! Anyway, the first thing to do after you install (successfully) is to enable PS3VRAM swap because it's waaay faster with this -> http://psubuntu.com/wiki/PSUbuntuGPU.

@PS3 News: Yes this should be submitted to site news, final build is already out! didn't saw anything about UBUNTU Jaunty in the news section!

P.S.: Another linux distro that has OFFICIAL SUPPORT for PS3 is Fedora 11 which is due in less than one month! Keep in mind that Ubuntu does not OFFICIALLY support the PS3 but the PS3 version is maintained through comunity support...

I'm using Ubuntu Jaunty on my PS3 from ALFA 5 stage and it's very very usable, played Wesnoth and Globulation on it with great result and also some SNES games.

The only bug that bothers me is that my bluetooth mouse does not work OOT!

dunno much about linux... and daily builds... don't waste your time installing this. Failed to install it 'cause no valid kenel found... Anyway i was looking for a new version of ubuntu cause i did'nt wanted to install the old version to update later...

I've 1 desktop and a laptop with XP and i've tried 2 years ago with linux on ps3 and then left.

OK, Thanks for the feedback guys... I will peek into this further and try to get a news post written on it soon.
