    We believe strongly that homebrew does not equal piracy, if you download this, please do go to http://humblehomebrew.com and at the very least sign the petition.

    Thanks goes to a whole lot of people out there; you know who you are.
    Torrent Details:

    • The Virtual machine is running Fedora 14 (x86 for compatibility with the most people), completely patched up as of 1/6/2011 (June 1st for those in the rest of the world)
    • Includes compiled and installed PSL1GHT, ps3toolchain, and ps3libraries from the ps3dev github repositories.
    • Includes SDL_PSL1GHT and SDL_PSL1GHT_Libs from zeldin’s fork of cebash’s work.
    • VMSetup quick start documentation in both Word 97 and HTML format.

    Requirements:

    - VMWare Server or VMWare Player (both are free)

      How did you convert the image to work with vbox?

      Hmm.. weird, when I try to open it using the latest VMPlayer it tells me it's a "Windows 2003 server standard edition" and complains with the following message when I started it: "This kernel requires an x86-64 CPU and detected only an i686 CPU. unable to boot - please use a kernel apropriate for your CPU."
      I do have an x86-64 CPU (Intel P4 3.6 HT) running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate..

      Edit: just tried it with latest VirtualBox and it shows the same problem.. (also set guest OS to Linux Fedora)..

      In vbox I selected "Linux Fedora 64-bit"

      At least that one brings me past the kernel complaint.

      Now where are the examples? And how do I start learning? I would like to learn how to put stuff on the screen, cursor, letters, blobs, lines, beziers, etc.

      How much memory do you find appropriate for this kind of work? Mine is now at 256MB

      grrrr.. appearantly 64-bit versions isn't supported, Vbox doesn't even show it, and VMPlayer complains '64-bit guest operations are not supported by this host and will not run' when I select fedora 64-bit..
      Ah crap, I just read it needs EM64T AND VT for 64bit support, and guess what, I'm just missing out on the VT.. I've got a P4 660 and VT was added in the 662.. grrrr............. I hate this sht....

      Then you are probably not running your host OS in 64-bit.

      Disane, do you know if there is any info about or progress in the RSX driver for Linux ? Last year I did read some info from you about it but never found anything about it afterwards.

      yes I am running my host in 64 bit (windows 7 x64 Ultimate), but my proc doesn't support the VT extention which is needed to run 64bit guest OSses in VMWare/VirtualBox..

      LOL, with VMWare Fusion under Mac, the "psl1ght-dev.vmx" is directly recognized (it's a seen as a Fedora linux image ), logged in as user & playing with it a bit ^^

      YOSH, it's awsome thank you guys for this awsome big job & nice idea

      I'll try later with VirtalBox too, and say what's up back here

      Oh and thanks ps3hax

      download/install the latest version of VirtualBox, create new virtual machine and select the vmx as your hdd, works like a charm (unless your PC isn't capable of running 64bit guest Osses through VirtualBox/VMware..

      virtualbox on Mac and Linux runs smooth too, no converting of the image needed. But have to make a new virtual machine, and load the image from the download as the HDD of that new VM.

      ok for VBox

      just wanted to ask how to run/make examples ? (as i followed tuts from here: http://psl1ght.dashhacks.com/lesson02/index.php but no "ps3/dev/DeadRSX/Template" directory => is it only visible when connected to ps3 viaftp or what?

      Im mean: must we deploy all added libs (toolchain, ps3 libraries, psl1ght, SDL...) by making them, or is it already done?

      thanks


      Edit:

      do you have this Boot message: Bringing up eth0 does not.....initialization. (Failed) ==> but internet works on my mac... no browser under VM.


      Edit2: nah, just understood that all things're already been compiled (toolchain & so on ...). i did it again and it really takes 5 hors ^^ Examples run good
