    Default What is the best OS to install on a ps3?

    I am not quite sure what is the best linux OS to install on my ps3. I have had it for only 5 days now and I'm pretty sure I want to have some sort of linux on it. My question for you is, what is the best OS for my ps3 overall? and also what kind of things can you do that make it the best?

    Thanks a ton.

    Ubuntu, loads of app support (more than any linux distro), with the custom kernel installed you can get WiFi support, bluetooth controller support and other stuff.

    I've read into it for you, no it is not possible yet.

    While there is a Linux verison, there isnt a Linux PPC version.

    Ubuntu can run snes9x.

    Get it rigged upto the internet -

    Type
    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install snes9x
    It might ask you for a password and stuff, put it in and let it install.

    When its installed and you want to play a rom just type -
    Code:
    snes9x /path/to/your/rom.smc
    This is to change the options -
    http://www.snes9x.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=3020
    All the commands are there.

    Hope this helps.

    You can't run XP on a ps3... it's powerPC based.

    Yellow Dog Linux is the officially supported one by sony, however, it's rubbish in my experience; it's just a pain to use, for example you have to manually mount CDs and Flash memory. I currently use Ubuntu, and it#s way better apart from the shaky wifi support which is an absolute pain to get working, but if you're experienced with Linux you should be okay.

    so it's not possible to install any XP or Vista version on the PS3? I'm just curious.

    No you cannot. There is no PPC windows.

    I agree with goity, I am not a YDL fan.

    Ubuntu is good, but again agree'd WiFi is a pain in the ass, but you can get it working in about 30mins.
