January 2nd, 2007 by jvm

Over at AtomicGamer, our very own Marv “WAR” Malkowski Jr has posted his experience installing Yellow Dog Linux on a Sony PlayStation 3. In addition to providing helpful tips for would-be PlayStation Linux users, Marv talks about how he dealt with a couple of glitches he encountered during the installation process.

As a future PlayStation 3 owner, I’m looking forward to this very same tinkering sometime this year. I hope that in the end I can conclude, as Marv does, that it’s an interesting and worthwhile excursion.
