Okay, put it that way and i understand that i won´t be able to add xbmc to my ps3 system, but what i can´t understand is why there are so many guides here on the forum to make the Ps3 Bluetooth remote function with the app lirc?

Because bluetooth is a standard and they are generally available?

okey, just a extra device to control the unit with, instead of using a keyboard and mouse? sorry, i can´t see the point in it, if i would be the case.

The main reason is it a bluetooth remote and people likes to hide their computer in a cupboard. Since bluetooth devices doesn't need a line of sight like a normal infra red remote does, you can happily controlling xbmc without pointing the remote to an infra red sensor!!

XBMC is designed to be operated via remote... so too bad you cannot see the point.

You can't see the point of using a television remote to watch television?

PS3 can run Ubuntu..
So what`s the problem..?

Get accelerated opengl drivers for the ps3 and it really would not be a big problem.
well a ppc port for linux would haveto be made, there is one ppc port not sure if it is linux.
But the biggest thing is no accelerated graphics no Xbmc.
And no the hacks to get access to the ps3 gpu does not count. For the biggest reason no dev have any whis for rewriting the graphics subsystem for a hacked lib that may or not work until the next patch from sony. if one wanted to go that route one would need to find new devs to do it or become a dev and do it
