Most practical? Probably Debian 4, felt much more responsive than Ubuntu, although I do not like Debian 4.
Here is my xbox in Debian


Here is a much lower qualtiy video of my 360 running Ubuntu.

One more question - at present which distro's support sound or can all distro's be compiled to do so using the libxenon files?

Cheers

libxenon is just for Xell/Xellous it either loads Linux flashes you nand or loads a libxenon compiled .elf file. You can create libxenon software with the toolchain for linux.

To get the latest drivers you need the kernel patches and really regardless of what version you use you can run it with any kernel, install linux to your HDD and then whatever kernel you put on your bootloader disc is the one that will be used.

It never booted with gentoo live cd? If that didn't work, I have no idea.

Oh and, to the guy who said you need some xex file, nah. I just hit the eject button on my 360 and it boots to Xellous. (Freeboot, xbr did this as well) Or you can flatout install Xellous, which is what I did during my comp sci project... (Cluster of 360s, and I made a program that ran on the cluster to bench them biggrin.gif ) Was fun.
