I've been messing with my newly installed fedora core 5 on my ps3 since launch, and I'm willing to install or try out anything anybody wants.
So far, I've tried to install vlc from livna repository that was compiled for a ppc fedora core 5 but it fails to find a good amount of dependencies for some reason. I might reinstall the whole thing and try again because I'm sure I screwed up repositories like fedora extras somewhere along the way.
I also installed via rpm a x.264 encoding gui from the same livna repository but I can't find out where the hell it installed to so I can't try it out. It'd be great to encode ps3 videos on the ps3 itself, put em on my usb hard drive and then watch them with XMB or even VLC if I ever get that to work.
Since I mentioned the usb HD, I never thought this would work without lots of tweaking but before PS3 launch I took apart my 80GB external Hard drive from compusa black friday last year ($30) and then shoved in a 200GB from the same black friday sale (also $30) and it worked like a charm. It is ntfs formatted and yet linux recognizes it clear as day and I can copy files from it (haven't tried writing though because who the hell knows why it worked out of a fresh install?? I had to install ntfs-3g stuff on my fedora core 6 desktop to get it to recognize it)
AAAANyways, does anyone know of a possible fix to the vlc problem? and again if you want me to try some program out I'd be glad to.
