I have finally got my ps3 and after a few weeks of playing resistance i am now going to start trying linux emulators and such, but i am only going to see if they run, as im on standard def, so the linux interface is a bit hard to work on. anything i find that works or that i have managed to recompile i will attach here. I will try to do weekly updates and any help from other people is greatly appreciated.
dont expect anything till next week or so though, because i am going to download as many emus as i can in one go and test which are best for each system on my linux machine before recompiling.
my goal is to get almost everything available thats worth having on linux and port it. Stay tuned for more! :rofl:

Right, heres the first update, i have found out that a special compiler is required for the ps3 cbe, and am having trouble finding it. Also, my Linux disc broke and my brother (16, techno-idiot) decided to find out what´format drive´ does. now downloading linux @ 2kb a sec, while wading through approx: 10,000,000 results for Cell Broadband Engine Compiler. Any Help PLEASE!
i think this is gonna have 2 b a team effort, not just me getting dizzy from too many search results and staring at a little box thats telling me im gonna have 2 wait 2-4 weeks (fluctuating) b4 i get linux on my ps3 again... :-(

the new yellow dog wit wifi support?

anyway, its not all its cracked up to be.

emulation on ps3, sucks when we can't get to everything that's makes the ps3 so right.

Yeha, I have to say I am completely unimpressed with the performance of linux on ps3. It feels like a clunky old p3 or something.

are there any decent NES emulators at least, by now? i have YDL installed and i had tried SNES (slow) but i don't think i tried NES. what's the best NES emulator to try on PS3?

There are not emulator for ps3 at the moment

for NES you mean?
if there still isn't, that's damn shocking. i mean i wouldn't expect it'd be hard for a linux NES emulator to be modified to run on PS3. look how quickly a new linux kernel was released...

I don't think they are coming out. There just aren't enough hackers out there (with GOOD INTENTIONS, none of the ISO loading crap; backups or not...) working on exploiting the PS3.
