    Hello, how do I install Ubuntu on PS3?

    hello, how can i install ubuntu in my PS3?

    i need these features so i will apreciate some help here:

    - wireless connection support (if cant atm there is no problem but if there is some user mods, for example, i want everything that i need to install it)

    - movies playing support (avi, xvid, mkv etc etc) with separeted subtitles (.srt subtitles) -> as im a bad linux user i dont know even to extract a .rar files or install anything in my linux pc so i will appreciate some links to download players, codecs and a quick full guide about the installation process.

    - support for crt tvs (low resolution) while playing a 720p movies for example (does the ubuntu resizes the movie to fit in my tv?)

    well im a really bad linux user (tried centos and red hat 5 without a good progress x,x) i would appreciate a good tutorial... im stucked in the version i need to download (32 or 64-bit, original or modified), and if i need some another tools and why because in my mind ps3 improved their support to linux distro and we dint need extra tools like this tutorial says http://www.popularmechanics.com/tech...21.html?page=1

    thx

    See http://psubuntu.com/wiki/InstallationInstructions/.

    Last I tried it, the graphics drivers weren't good enough to watch movies, but this might've changed. Have at it.
