Hi Peeps,

Just got myself a PS3 and am looking to install Gentoo on to it.

I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this keyboard/mouse as it looks like a neat solution. Does it work with the PS3/Gentoo?

Any other recommendations for bluetooth keyboards/mice or do you have to use USB periperhals?

Going to start digging through this thread in the coming days.

Cheers

That's just a USB keyboard/mouse from the POV of the computer.

So it will work with the PS3? Have you tried it?

Does the PS3 work with all USB keyboards/mice? What about bluetooth solutions, as it would then leave the USB ports free?

I've no idea about BT kyboards. I know some friends use the Apple one on the PS3, but I haven't tried it.

I used a few USB keyboards on my PS3. Anyhting that presents as standard USB HID device, like this, will be fine.

Cool, cheers for confirming USB compatability. Haven't found much about bluetooth keyboards yet. Will post details if I find anything.

Currently having trouble getting the keyboard and mouse working under xorg-server-1.5.3-r6. Have it built with hal and input_devices_evdev USE flags...

     Homepage:            http://xorg.freedesktop.org/
     Description:         X.Org X servers



But on starting X no input from keyboard or mouse (have to ssh in to kill X/gdm).

I was under the impression this verison of xorg detects hardware such as keyboard and mouse via hal/evdev and you don't need to specify any input devices in /etc/X11/xorg.config?

Can anyone advise on this?

(Keyboard works fine on console, and both worked under X on the live CD).

Code:

rc-update add hald default


Dumb me!
