Would like to start a project to get Second life client running on PS3

1) Port to yellow dog
2) Get running as Other OS


Are there any other people interested in getting involved in this project

Thanks

I was told today this could not be done because sony has blocked access to the RSX and we have to go through hypervisor using frame buffers.

I love it when people say CAN'T.

This is begining to sound a little more challenging project than I had anticipated.

I am not allowed to download secondlife source (reasons I can't explain on this forum) but it sounds like we may have a great challenge on our hands. Solutions may involve everything from a hack through to creating a virtual graphics accelerator using one of the PS3 SPE's..

Let the games begin!
