Hello all,

It seems for those with a PS3, there's already some linux distros which seem to support PS3: YDL, Ubuntu and Gentoo. As a Gentoo user, I wonder how Gentoo supports PS3 hardware.
- Does everything work ok?
- Is the installation similar to other archs or there is something different about it?
- Are there ebuilds ready for Cell development, etc?
- Do you recommend it?

Cheers,

Paulo Matos

take a look here: http://overlays.gentoo.org/proj/cell/wiki

I don't own a PS3, so I only know what I read on IRC and here in the forums etc.

There is a stage4 which should bring your installation up quite fast. There are some differences to other arches in the installation process. Namely the bootloader. Take a look at the wiki. It's explained there.

Hello all,

In order not to bug myself into buying a blank CD, finding a CD recorder to burn a CD, is there a way to install Gentoo either through USB flash _or_ network on my PS3???

Cheers,

Paulo Matos

This would work for the newest install released only days ago.
