Introducing… PS3 Magic: Install Linux on Playstation 3


PlayStation3 – The Most Powerful Gaming Console in the Planet

Generally Gaming consoles are designed so that foreign systems can’t run on them, but this software goes in the total opposite direction, allowing an experienced Linux user to personalize their system. Most gaming systems are “locked” so that other systems can’t be run, so this software is unconventional in allowing this.

What’s really cool about it is that – it’s the same processor used in some of the high end IBM systems. That means you can use it as a Fun, Game Playing console as well as the front end of super computing systems for larger performance like Game development, Internet programs, Open Office, Movies and other type of functionality we have in our Desktops. The only thing you can’t do on it is run accelerated graphics.


PS3 comes with it’s own operating system that enables you to surf through it’s interface and play games on it. In addition to the games you can also run an entire Linux Operating system.

This will allow you to play Movies, MP3, PC applications, development tools, Internet programs, web browsers – most applications that are found in usual Desktop PCs.

  • Use it like a PC, with a keyboard and mouse. Not all PC programs will run on it
  • Run your own operating system. This is a boon to those who want to personalize their system
  • Run Office suites – like Open Office or Microsoft Office
  • Run MAME and other kinds of emulators. This means you can play all your favorite games from yesteryear on your brand new shiny Play Station 3 – like SNES, Sega.
  • Play different types of media, such as DVDs, ROMs and CDs . Running Linux, you can watch movies or listen to music on your PS3
    Never have an Unplayable file again
  • Use the internet with Advanced web browsers like Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer
  • Enjoy over 2000 Software applications to make your life as easy as Desktop PC
  • Install Windows through Emulators
  • Connect to network shares. This feature allows you to save and retrieve files on another server, thus saving your memory

Which Linux is Best for PS3?

There are six Linux operating systems that are compatible with it, but YellowDog Linux was specially built for it and it’s the most compatible Linux Operating system for it. The other Linux OS like Ubuntu, Fodera, Kubuntu can also be installed but YellowDog and Ubuntu are preferred.

Yellow Dog Linux is specially customized for it and was released for only PS3 users. YDL has over 2200 programs and accessories that will give you the ultimate experience of a Desktop PC.

Ubuntu is an operating system built by a worldwide team of expert developers. It contains all the applications you need: a web browser, office suite, media apps, instant messaging and much more.

Fedora is not a good option for the PS3 right now as it doesn’t have the required optimization and runs slower than Ubuntu and YDl.

Edubuntu – is packaged for education so that is the concentration

Kubuntu – uses KDE which looks closer to windows in terms of default color and menu apps. It also offers more options to configure your programs and Desktop.

Xubuntu uses XFCE which is good for older computers, computers with limited resources in terms of ram or storage but is also good on new computer if you want a lean system.

The best Linux would be YellowDog and Ubuntu.

Latest Yellow Dog Linux(YDL) – With the latest Yellow dog which is 100% bug free and compatible with the PS3, this is the best choice of Linux. YellowDog looks slightly geeky though but it gives you complete experience of operating a Home PC. You can use your mouse, Keyword, external Hard drive and do a whole lot more with YDL.

YellowDog offers over 2000 applications to make life easier – the most any Linux offers at the moment.Yellowdog Linux was developed specially for the PS3 Operating system to carry out most PC tasks.

It can be a movie player, MP3 player, watch Home videos. Yellow dog over 2000 applications – everything from Web browsers, Open office, DVD players, Chat, Microsoft Office compatible suite, Email clients, Games practically everything you need on a Desktop PC… Games, Graphics, Office suites, Accessories, Internet Programs, Programming tools.

Latest Ubuntu Linux – Ubuntu on the other hand is easier to use with a much better feel and look but it is not as optimized for it as YellowDog. Though major applications like Movie players, MP3, browsers are available in Ubuntu but it lacks the Development and programming tools which of course many of us don’t need. If you are more keen on having a graphically appealing Operating System then Ubuntu is the way to go. PS3Magic will help you install Yellowdog and Ubuntu both at the same time – you can switch operating system while powering on it and experience both if needed.
