PS2 Linux Dev Kit Updates

April 28th, 2001 by Crusader
  • The official SonyPS2 Linux Kit sitehas added more questions to their FAQ pageand the dmesg output froma PS2 Linux kernel boot.

  • ps2.ign.com has postedsome info about the kit(thanks rts); IGN mentions thatVGA monitors will need “Synch on Green” compatibility to be used with the adapter, andthat Sony will be releasing a list of working monitors shortly.
  • Finally, since Sony still seems skittish about releasing the kit in the US andEurope, the English version of the petition which prompted the Japanese releaseis still up at http://www.fakeroot.net/ps2linux/.There are over 2000 signatures at present, so feel free to add your name to the list if you wantto see Linux on your Playstation 2 on this side of the pond.
