TerraSoft to sell PS3 with Linux pre-installed

Posted on Monday, February 26 2007 @ 04:52:30 CET by


Linux Devices reports Linux distributor TerraSoft is accepting pre-orders for PlayStation 3 consoles with Linux pre-installed.
Sony's Playstation3 does not run Linux as its standard OS. However, the device's Cell BE processor has been supported in the mainline Linux kernel since late last year, and TerrSoft has offered a version of its Yellow Dog Linux for the Playstation3 since October -- a month before the PS3 actually shipped.

TerraSoft says its Linux-enabled PS3 will come with a DVD, installation guide, sticker, and "flippy" -- presumably a dog toy. The device will have a 60GB hard drive, 256MB of non-expandable Rambus RAM, gigabit Ethernet, WiFi, 4 USB ports, a Blueray DVD player, and HDMI and Sony Multi AV graphics ports. Users must supply a keyboard and mouse, and must purchase separate HDMI or component-to-multi-AV cables in order to connect the device to high-definition displays (the PS3 supports "1080p" output).
