    UPDATE (March 27th, '20) - Another New Video Released >>> The next PS3 NVidia RSX accelerated X.org steps
    (Original Article from Nov. 14) Is the PS3 a bit closer to gaining Hardware Acceleration (via RSX) in OtherOS (Linux) with a proper driver to enable the GPU chip? We are not there, but we may be getting closer to a reality. Earlier this year (back in April) we detailed some of the progress that the busy dev RenéRebe has made with unlocking the potential of the PlayStation 3's RSX chip and now today we have been greeted with a new video and what we can expect with this project as the developer starts to undertake the challenge of further unlocking one more component of the Ps3 hardware,. The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..

      Yes he just posted it to his comments in the past 2 hours! I am going to be trying this out! I am such a damn noob when it comes to Linus though, so hopefully I can figure out my way around this. Thinking about using a spare 80GB HDD for this if I can from another parts PS3 I have laying around.

      i plan to try when i get more hotspot data. i would recommend run from (or install to) usb for now. it is kinda confusing to get it on hdd. you need a special otheros pup to and scrpts to make partiton for linux. also make sure you use correct petiboot (there is one for NAND and one for NOR).
