with 9 comments

Woohoo ! After a long delays and issues (in the last few days) I’ve managed to install openSUSE 11.1 in my PS3.  Running a full blown desktop is very sluggish. Reminds me of my first computer (amdk6 500mhz). Some screenies :

6 SPEs

Now onto get the Cell SDK running … Synergetic Processing Elements (SPE) here i come !

  1. My friend is waiting for Ubuntu to Just Work on his PS3.. should he just use Opensuse instead? How many problems did you have?

    • i’m not sure what problem you are facing with Ubuntu. But openSUSE install was easy (I didn’t do anything special). I didn’t run GNOME Desktop much. I’m interested in the programming part, so all i need is just a console 🙂 . HTH.

  2. Pretty sweet!

    How did you install OpenSUSE on it, are there are any easy-to-follow HOWTOs?

    • @Miguel : en.opensuse.org/PS3 was all i needed. It is pretty straight forward.

  5. I found I had to either turn off Nepomuk in KDE or use Xfce as all the memory was used up.

    Did you find the icons change colour – the reds and blues swap?
