XBMC on linux on PS3 - NetNut404 - 2008-05-22 20:18
Hi, so I know this has been talked about alot.. but with all I have read I am curious what the status is on this.. Meaning is it dead and noone is looking into it or is it still being looked into? It's funny because I saw that xbmc is working linux and that linux has been installed on the ps3, so without looking much futher though.. if that's the case why cant I put xbmc on linux on my ps3.. only to find that there was more to that puzzle than I originally investigated, and I am still force to keep my old original xbox console plugged in for xbmc
Anyway.. enought ranting for now.. just thought the ps3 could double as a awesome media center ..

Well there are several threads on this already, but the key reasons why nothing has happened yet is that the PS3's architecture is PPC not x86, and also there are no real 3d linux drivers for the PS3. So, it may happen one day, just not anytime soon.

I won't delve deeply into the conversation, but this is entirely true. Out of all of the media-oriented software that I've used XBMC is by far my favorite regardless of the platform.

Looks like a project called spu-medialib has a collection of media library code optimized for the PS3's Cell processor.
Quote:spu-medialibIf combinied with Gallium (for the XBMC GUI rendering part) then this could maybe be usefull?

Quoted and bumped because i agree 100% wholeheartedly..
XBMC is the best media center solution across ALL platforms and ALL environments PERIOD. Even the dedicated hardware solutions out there pale in comparison.

They recently got XP running on the ps3, so depending on how the opengl functions, you might be able to already run XBMC on ps3. Just speculating of course.

Hooray for uneducated guessing!

I am not hoping XBMC port to ps3
I am hoping computers will become small, compact and cheap enough (<$300 maybe), similar to the EEEPC so we can run XBMC off that (on mac or linux or windows)
