    Ubuntu Studio Playstation 3 support

    I'm in the middle og buying a PS3 for myself and as I enjoy making music/graphics I was wondering if anybody knows if Ubuntu Studio can be handled (flawlessly) by the PS3 hardware?

    Re: Ubuntu Studio Playstation 3 support

    I just bought one, and I intend to put Ubuntu on it; and from what I'm reading, our only issue really is the ppc processor. That said, if Ubuntu's lack of ppc support becomes to big of an issue its no big deal to mod your install, or choose a distro that has ppc support. If I understand studio it's major draw is a low latency kernel, all the software on the studio install disk is readily available to a regular ubuntu or other distro install as well.

    So, after my long winded /shrug, I'd say keep reading; I'd want to know if the low latency kernel is even applicable to a ppc, if it is, am I going to end up having to recompile the kernel anyway? etc..etc...

    I don't know why there is no download for ubuntu 8.04 for ppc, as for 7.10 there is such download. Try http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/gutsy/release/. Or you could try the debian distribution, on which ubuntu is based on.

    And by the way: Which release should I choose? AMD64 or just the Intel x86?

    For Playstation? Neither. I thought you want the ppc version.

    And that is off course, exactly what I want. Sorry. My bad.

    So the only real solution is to install this .iso, and then install the multimedia applications I want manually, later on?

    Or:

    Could the reason for the missing specific 8.04 PS3 .iso be, that the issues has been sorted out in 8.04?

    Or you could try, as I said before, the debian distribution, as there it is for more hardware architectures than ubuntu, and there is a ppc download. And because ubuntu is based on debian, it is easy to switch from one of these distributions to the other.

    I just read the http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/804 page. You should read it too, as it has some information relevant to your question.
