i was wondering if it will work?

i see that fedore core 5 can be installed onto the ps3 and run just fine.
but im wondering will eve classic or premium be able to run on it ?

and any tips / tricks on getting it installed in the first place ^_^"

Not likely. Out of box it will not run since ps3 isnt a pc. It has a processor named cell with 8 auxiliary processors and one main powerpc-core. So basically when you run linux on it , it is a slow mac with funny auxiliary processors eve wont be able to use. Also not sure about the graphics hardware.

Eve could probably be ported to run on ps3 but I doubt they will since not many people are playing eve on ps3+linux combinations hehehe

thats a shame i thought it might have been a cool idea i guess it looks like more trouble than its worth.

The other, major issue (I've no doubt that a PS3 can do some x86 emulation in software via the usual suspects quite quickly using... boch?) is that on the PS3 most of the neat stuff, such as the 3D system, is locked away from any other OS other than the PS3's internal one.

So... one day it might work... but it will crawl along. Shame really as I'd get a major kick out of seeing EVE on a PS3.

Won't work.

As said above it doesn't use x86 PC so wine won't work. EVE doesn't run on any non-x86 CPU's (both linux and mac clients are x86 only).

Also as said above, 3D acceleration isn't available to linux on PS3.
