yellow dog discussion

hello its your favorite magicbox member (named the Hardware..lol)

I was wondering if anyone a bit more tech savy than myself could tell me what are the benefits to installing the yellow dog on your ps3, at the moment I hear it runs pretty well with a few minor knit-picks. but it should all be irond out real soon,

but whats the big deal of owning it, and what will you be able to look forward to with having it?

you can find it here to see and read some specs on it

[ydl]=1]Yellow dog

is anyone here going to look into it when they eventually get a ps3?

it'd be awesome to have a yellow dog. if a dog's hair was yellow, even it shedding it everywhere would feel festive.

Ubuntu is the best linux, (well my favorite flavor) You should try it when they release a PS3 version.

There is no big deal (right now) over having it - Yellow Dog's support for the PS3 is limited on the fundamental hardware level. Yellow Dog offers no support for the PS3's graphics hardware (beyond framebuffer mode) nor any OpenGL support (or any video acceleration) - as such, PS3 graphics manipulation or access to the graphics capabilities through Yellow Dog is impossible. This also rules graphics related applications meaning only a subset of programs will work on Yellow Dog for the PS3.

There is also no wireless support for it but Terra Soft claims that they working on solving that issue in the future.

Frankly, there does not appear to be anything special about getting Yellow Dog for PS3 at this time.

I would be more interested in Ps3 if it suported windows.

Would it be too much to ask to have Ps3 running windows and being able to play PC games? Being able to play wow from a comfy chair would rock.

Playing Xvid, DVD, WMV, QT, basically any video on your TV: VideoLAN Client.
Emu's, because for anything up to 64 bit you don't really need Video Acceleration.
Surfing the net with Mozilla if you have a 42"+ HDTV.

Basically anything you can do with a computer.

My computer table is very small. I can only sit in this crappy little chair with it lowered all the way down. I would much rather sit on my couch or love seat.

Anyway, my comment is just something that would be nice. Im not saying they should do it, nor do I care. I wouldent buy one anyway unless I wanted to play Ps3 games. They could take out Linux use altogether for all I care.

I dunno but I once had a crappy little computer table. I replaced it with a larger better one. Then I bought myself a chair of loveliness. Its more comfortable then my damn couch. And since my TV is next to my computer, I play my consoles sitting on this chair.
