  1. There’s no reason why not. I use Ubuntu on my ps3, and I haven’t seen anything on the forums about that, but that may simply mean nobody’s had any problems making it work.

    If you don’t get the info from ydl then try Ubuntu’s ps3 forums, psubuntu.com. While you’re there, make sure to get the patched mplayer-ps3, if you don’t already have it. It makes video ALMOST look good.

    The only hardware that’s locked from OtherOS is what’s under the hypervisor. That doesn’t include any usb device. If it would work with a pc, it should work in ps3 linux.

    To be on the safe side, I’d look around for some evidence that it’s been done before spending any money. Someone has surely tried it and posted about it, somewhere, since it’s linux.
