Here's the full changelog:
And here are a few things you should keep in mind:This is the version 3 of the Linux Live DVD for the Playstation 2.
The changes in this version are:
- Bochs (PC emulator)
- Windowmaker (Graphic User Interface)
- p7zip (command line tool)
- Updated YouTube script which should work with all videos.
- EyeToy Webcam
- Support for slim PSTwo v12/v13 (v14 and higher was already working)
New kernel parameters are:
Start WindowMaker instead of Fluxbox.
Update system at startup. This is intended to update the YouTube scripts. Maybe this will update more in the future.
Activate webserver which shows the picture from the EyeToy camera.
You can download v3 from the official SourceForge project website linked below!You need only to download one file. You should know if you have modchip. If you don't know what a modchip is, you probably doesn't have one, so you need to download the "no_modchip" version.
PAL and NTSC is the format of your TV. If you don't know what you have, you can look at the cover of a game which is working your PS2. It is printed on the front cover in the upper right corner.
The small and large version have the same features if you just want to use it. The large version contains the source code, additonal packages and a image with FreeDOS for the PC emulator Bochs. The additional stuff is only usable if you have advanced knowledge.
You can extract the archives with p7zip. The archives contain ISO files. You can burn it with your favoured DVD burning program.
The DVD contains a readme file for additional information. If you don't have a modchip, you need to start the program KLOADER.ELF from the DVD. You can use uLaunchELF which can be installed with FMCB. You may need to copy KLOADER.ELF to a PS2 memory card or an USB stick.
