Linux on PS3 Help

  1. BTW I have no idea how linux works.... I installed it onto my PS3. After it loads my screen goes blank. I was reading else where it could be my tv (480i) but I dont know how to fix this... anyone?
     
  2. no #$%#ing clue, i was going to put it on my PS3, but i have a pretty nice computer and it'd be pointless.
     
  3. your refresh rate probably. see if you can boot up in safe mode and change your refresh rate manually to one that your monitor supports. LCD tvs have a much smaller range and dont auto adjust (as far as I know).

    Otherwise I would have my 40" hooked up to my tower.
     
  4. /dev/null
     
  5. i belive this is called a reverse kanga, though i could be wrong.
     
  6. It should work, my brother did it on his PS3. It's kinda useless on anything below 720p since everything is hard to read.
     
  7. It makes sense to do things that you have no clue about.
     
  8. why would you do such a thing? an doesn't that void your warranty?
     
  9. No, I think you're right.
     
  10. Why thank you, kind sir.
     
  11. No, there's actually a menu option for changing the operating system on the PS3.
     
  12. The PS3 wifi is n-band, rite?
     
  13. neg, g i'm pretty sure
     
  14. wait wait wait. Linux on Playstation 3?? Why have i had no clue to this. And why on earth even if possable would you do that?
     
  15. that's lame then: is G fast enough to stream HD video reliably?
     
  16. why the hell would you do that? whats it do?
     
  17. ...also, how is OpenGL supported in Linux: are the hardware drivers or does Sony limit it to software? If it's only software (which I suspect) I wonder if it's fast enough for decent N64 emulation? (probably not at HD)
