Gentoo on PS3 Installation Procedure

Filed under
Gentoo
HowTos

there are several things you need to download before you begin. get a usb mass storage device (formatted as fat32) and make a directory called PS3 and inside PS3 make a directory called otheros. put the kboot.bld and the otheros.self files in otheros. it will also be convenient to burn that live cd, and toss the portage tree and stage 3 on the usb mass storage device. you may also want to burn the cell addon disc (and source version too) if you can't mount it to get stuff off later. moving on (some of these are just shorthand abbreviations because i am too lazy to type the real command or multiples of the same thing - i hope to make a script to automate getting you from kboot -> the gentoo live cd so that this early part is easier):

Full Story.

Now we're talking!

This makes me wish I'd saved some money up and gotten a PS3... Mine would be running Slackware 11 in very short order. (God bless cross-compiling!)

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
