I recently got fed up with only being limited to play a small amount of my video files on PS3 so I decided that I wanted to put a linux distro on my PS3 and then use Elisa ( to stream video from my server essentially acting as a front end.

I first tried Ubuntu but it took too long to start and I just didn't like how much crap was installed by default and wanted a more streamlined install, so I'm back at my old buddy Gentoo.

The install worked just fine and I booted up into fluxbox in no time what so ever. Very happy over all.

Since there wasn't a supported ebuild for elisa in the main packages I found an overlay at:

I opted to enter the overlays manually in order to better understand what all is going on and my peace of mind. During the process I ran into a problem, 3 dependencies do not have ~ppc keywords they are...


The reason I need ppc is because the PS3's cell processor is PowerPC based. I am running a 64bit kernel but in a 32bit userland.

Most of my life I have lived in the x86/x86-64 realm and don't know much else. My question is this, what is the best way to get those packages so that I can get my slick new media center working? Is there a way to test the source out to see if it works for ppc but just hasn't been tried? I am at a loss right now.

Moved from Unsupported Software to Duplicate Threads. Same as PS3 - elisa package in the PPC forum but not quite identical--edit that post if it lacks relevant details found only here.
