Linux-running PS3 offered on eBay

Filed under
Linux

Want to run Linux on the PlayStation 3 but can't be bothered with the hassle of installing it? Then head over to online auction site eBay where one of Sony's next-generation consoles is on offer pre-loaded with Fedora Core 5 Linux.

The console on offer is a 60GB machine, the seller says. He claims the hardware's hard drive not only has the open source operating system installed but is also ready to run courtesy of a seller-installed bootloader tool. "It is the full [Fedora] install including dozens of games, word processing, firefox, and much much more," the seller notes.

Full Story.

Mayor blames Sony for PS3 day of chaos

THE MAYOR of Boston, Thomas M. Menino, has vowed to bill Sony for the trouble caused by the PS3 launch day chaos.

Speaking to the Boston Herald Menino spoke about the situation frankly, "We had to rush in 12 police cars with officers there and take them off the streets of our city where they're doing their patrols, to squelch the crowd that we had there" he said, referring to a crowd of 500 at a local mall.

In Connecticut, two armed thugs tried to rob a line of people outside a Wal-Mart and a prospective PS3 owner refused to give up his money and was subsequently shot. He was in stable condition yesterday at hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
