7 and the IBM SDK 3.0 on PlayStation 3
These are the quick and dirty instructions. If these don't make sense, take a
Installing Fedora Core 6 on the
[[PlayStation 3]] for additional background.
You'll want to have a USB/RF keyboard attached to the PS3 at this point.
- Get installation materials; need 1 blank DVD, 1 blank CD.
- Update the firmware on your PS3 to the latest (2.00 as of the time this was
- Format your PS3's harddrive (this will erase all data on the entire drive)
- There are four options for a 60 GB harddrive:
1. All to PS3
2. All to
3. 10 GB to Other OS and rest to PS3
4. 10 GB to PS3 and rest to
- choose either option 2 or 4.
- In the XMB menum, go to Settings --> System Settings -->
- Be sure to select Quick format (10 seconds) or you'll be
waiting 3.5 hours.
- Install the Linux boot loader
- Insert the CELL-Linux-CL_20071023-ADDON CD into the PS3
- In XMB navigate to Settings --> System Settings --> Install
- The console should automatically detect the necessary files on the CD
- Follow the prompts to install the bootloader onto the hard
- Change default OS to Other OS
- Insert the FC-7-ppc DVD into the PS3. Then,
- Settings --> System Settings --> Default System:
change from PS3 to Other OS
- If everything is working, you'll see a kboot prompt.
- At the kboot command prompt, enter:
- *cd //mnt/root/ppc/ppc64 * # Note two leading slashes
- kexec -f --initrd=ramdisk.image.gz --command-line="video=720p"
- Answer anaconda's questions
- Select your keyboard and language preference
- When it says it can't find your media
- Press "Select Driver", and scroll down to !PlayStation 3
- When asked about partitioning, select custom partiotioning and create a ext3
partition as the / partition and then a swap.
- LVM doesn't seem to work with the kernel and that is on the addon cd (at
- The same applies also to ext2
- When you get to the part about what packages to install, select only
Software Development and Customize
- Wait... a while. The PS3 looks frozen for a bit, then it will start
installing files. This process takes 4 - 5 hours.
- It will eventually eject the DVD, say that it's rebooting, and hang ;)
- Press and hold the power button until it beeps the second time (about 7
seconds), then release
- Press it again. It'll boot the new system.
* Install the updated kernel and goodies *** Insert the
ADDON CD ** *cd /media/<don't remember>/target **
*rpm -ihv --force *.rpm *** Edit /etc/yaboot.conf so that it'll boot
the new kernel
- Answer the first boot questions: set root passwd, create regular
- It will hang again on reboot, so hold power button
# yaboot.conf generated by anaconda
init-message=Welcome to Fedora!\nHit <TAB> for boot options
append="video=720p rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/1"
append="video=720p rhgb quiet root=LABEL=/1"
- Reboot system (it'll hang the first time. Do the hold the button
- (the 2.6.23 kernel you just installed knows how to shutdown and reboot the
- Apply any updates (except kernel updates) that are available
- To reduce memory consumption make the following changes:
- edit /etc/inittab and change id:5:initdefault to
id:3:initdefault (disables X-server and graphical login)
- disable non-essential services. E.g., sendmail, cups, anything else you can
Installation of GNU Radio on
F7 on the PS3
- Do NOT enable the development repositories for Yum
- In /etc/yum.repos.d/ edit fedora-development.repo and
enable all repositories by setting enabled to 0
- In /etc/yum.repos.d/ edit fedora-extras-development.repo
and enable all repositories by setting enabled to 0
These are the rawhide directories and are inconsistent with the use of SDK
$ sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools"
$ sudo yum install fftw-devel cppunit-devel libusb-devel guile boost-devel alsa-lib-devel numpy swig sdcc
Some of the names of the binaries in sdcc are very generic, and
they have therefore been moved to
- SDCC is installed in a slightly strange way here, so fix some of the
/usr/libexec/sdcc on [http://www.fedoraproject.org
sdcc- have been created in
This might be a problem for existing programs, but the solution is simply to add
/usr/libexec/sdcc to your PATH before building GNU Radio:
Fedora":http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/geoff/cell], and symlinks
$ export PATH=/usr/libexec/sdcc:$PATH
- Get the GNU Radio installation from Subversion and install it
svn co http://gnuradio.org/svn/gnuradio/trunk
sudo make install
- Set PYTHONPATH to point to the default /usr/local installation directory:
- Set this in your login script ~/.bashrc to automatically load on

Installing the IBM Cell SDK
Follow the download and installation instructions
You'll need to create an IBM ID if you don't already have one.
Note, the IBM SDK contains both free and non-free software.

Hint: They install
I think all the free stuff is in the CellSDK-Open-Fedora-*
repository at the Barcelona Supercomputing Center.
