I literally have absolutely no idea what I have done, BUT, snd_ps3…
is now found by PS3 running Yellow Dog Linux. At some time in the
past two weeks while I was running around, I did an update (after Terra
finally got my password fixed) and the sound system is found. I compiled
and installed PortAudio and pa_devs finds the device and all of the test
programs that are using only output work perfectly.
When you run “top” on this machine, you will see two threads. Do NOT
do make -j3 or -j2. Swig output has been compiling for AN HOUR and has
not finished. ;-).
For those running YDL, I am sure you have discovered that you have
about 8k of free space in RAM when running Enlightenment. Gnome is even
In /etc/inittab where you find
change the 5 to a 3 and reboot to get rid of the X login. If you need X
things, ssh in from a remote terminal.
Now you will find that about 50% of RAM is free when the machine is
sitting idle. The drop in swapping has a major impact on the PS3.
I am hoping (like Tom) to report some success with the PS3 on Sunday. I
have a full plate with Frank B. and Flex until Sunday afternoon.
