is there any way to get an instant messenger on ps3? Also, can Mac OSX be installed onto the ps3?
IM: Not to my knowledge (but if there is, I hope you have a keyboard).
OS X: probably not, and why would you bother, besides the zOMG OS X ON A PS 3!!11!!1!1!6 factor?
lol. that would be fun. i have a keyboard. it would be nice though to switch from watching tv to chatting with someone.
Install Yellow Dog Linux (YDL) and you can do AIM, MSN, Yahoo, whatever you want, and it's built-in.
Installing YDL is pretty easy so I recommend giving it a shot. I just watched a movie tonight through VLC on my PS3. After downloading the movie and sending the movie file from my Mac to the PS3. Pretty sweet
EDIT: And I use a wireless keyboard and mouse. Works like a charm! Just make sure you use the GNOME Session as it is most user-friendly. Don't know how or have questions just let'em rip cause I was a noob on all of this stuff and have finally gotten the hang of it.
You will probably never get OSX onto a PS3, and certainly not to a usable state
As for IMing... www.meebo.com ?
OSX with 256mb ram?
Thats what I'm running it on and by god is it painful!
About IM you could probably do it with a web based messenger client like Microsoft´s own web messenger or Ebuddy or IloveMSN.
I have Gentoo on my PS3. It runs pretty fast and stable. I have gaim installed for IM.
in theory you can install ANY OS with PPC support onto the PS3........
(however some code woudl have to be re-compiled for hte hardware in order for anything to work)
I hate answers like this.
In theory I can fly, but I just am too damn heavy!
Not true; the PS3 isn't standard PPC. You say some code would have to be recompiled, but it is impossible to recompile the code without access to the code.
You could install the following
YDL 5 for Playstation 3 and Fedora Core 5
People got Fedora Core 6 to install.
After YDL 5, you can install Windows 2000 if you choose.
They also said it'd run Windows if you wanted Apple won't let it. Sony won't piss off Apple. Not gonna happen
Wether or not its legal is not the point I am trying to make, nor is that fact that it would probably run rather sluggish with only 256MB RAM.
The point is......IT'S POSSIBLE because of the CELL architecture.
[EDIT] btw - its about as likely as saying APPLE hardware will never run windows.
Actually, my Gentoo install is pretty snappy. It's not a speed demon or anything but its probably faster and more responsive than the average home computer.
^How much disk space are you using for linux?...I'm thinking about giving it a shot.
Yes, and my Yellow Dog is not bad either......however Tiger minimum requirements are 256MB RAM.
That means it runs, but probably not as well as you would "like".
I'm not using much...20GB at the most.
I partitioned about 10GB. I'm probably using under 4.
