REQIREMENTS:
- A console with Kernel 4532
-The Linux Gentoo Live CD:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=139616
-The King Kong game (i can't find it yet, if u have it, plez post it)
-The Shader exploit patch:
http://www.xbins.org/King_Kong_Shader_Expliot_for_XELL.rar

To know how to know the Version of the Dash, you only have to switch on the Console and in the System Settings, you should see in the section "D" and "K" the Version 2.0.4532 or 2.0.4548 (or previous versions... or 2.0.2858, like the one I'm working on).

Now use winpatch to patch your ISO with the command:

win_patch.exe <name of iso>
Wait until the process has been done and burn the new image newly patched on a DVD Dual Layer Drive.

Once the DVD with the patched King Kong game is ready you can prepare the Linux Gentoo disc. Take the Linux image and burn it on a DVD Dual Layer Drive.

At the end you will have two DVD’s, one containing the patched King Kong game and the other one containing Linux Gentoo.
Proceed to the next step… Connect to the Console:-
-the Keyboard and the USB Mouse
-the Network Cable to the Computer or Router
Switch on the Console and insert the King Kong game.
Click "START" when the menu is visible on screen:

After the game has been Loaded, the Console will be blocked and the Drive will eject the DVD. Quickly swap the disc with the one containing the Gentoo. A few seconds later, linux will load:

you might wanna fix the links cause the last few pictures don't work and you probably should give credit to whereever you got the resources from.
You don't really need to see the last few pictures anyways. Pictures taken from xbox-inf.com, there's the watermark on the pics anyways :(

i can run linux on meh ps3 so idc..

And, it is easier to set up on the PS3.. xD


PS3 ftw!
the PS3 also hasn't really come up with anything itself... its whole sixaxis shit and wireless is a cheap and inefficient rip off the Wii controles, its design is like the same as the PS2 except rounder and glossy and its whole Blueray hype is just the Sony version of 360's HDDVD drive.

If you want graphics go with the 360... if you want gameplay go wii

Linux is possible for the PS3 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_for_PlayStation_3

And why use ubuntu, best ones are redhat/fedora and yellow dog for this kind of thing.
Yes i know it's for ps3, but u cannot run it natively but u have to use a livecd.
With x360, u can install ubuntu natively. Ubuntu is actually the best free distro, and yes, redhat and suse are better but u gotta pay.

all consoles are lame but they are getting better due to the fact they are being designed more and more like computers.

linux is so robust, just have to use the right distro like echo said
