Step 1: Setup/Prerequisites
You will need a PlayStation3 console, a working Internet connection, and a PC to burn disc images. You will also need One(1) blank DVD-R, One(1) blank CD-R, and finally a USB mem stick/thumb-drive.
Step 1a - Download Fedora Core DVD ISO image for PPC, and burn the Fedora Core ISO image to DVD. Fedora Core 8 will do (Note that Fedora 9 or 10 may be ok, just not tested with this set of steps.):
- Fedora 8 (Find a local mirror), (US link)
- Note: For older versions of Fedora you will also need to get the Cell specific kernel AddOn Packages iso here.
- USB Mem Stick Boot Image http://www.ps3cluster.org/distros/ps3.zip
- Unzip the file. This folder called "PS3" should contain the subfolder 'otheros' and the file 'TRANS.TBL'.
- Place this folder on any empty USB thumb drive/memory stick.
