Fedora release 6.92 Rawhide)
Kernel 2.6.20-1.3035.fc7 on an ppc64
Wheee. The Fedora rawhide kernel finally boots on PlayStation 3. There are a few more details we need to address, like the fact that kexec and reboot aren't working right now, but it looks like we should be in reasonable shape for Fedora 7.
We'll need a bootloader. Ideally that would be petitboot, which the ozlabs folks should have ready any day now, but given the Fedora 7 feature freeze is already upon us I have a horrid suspicion we're going to be making an 'otheros.bld' (flash bootloader for PS3) which we make available separately, and which just has a horrid hack to interpret and obey /etc/yaboot.conf from the hard drive.
When we have more scope to play -- and once kexec actually works in our kernel so it can boot other kernels, which is sort of important for a bootloader -- we'll look at building the bootloader blob properly.
Hm, that 'on an ppc64' still bugs me. I'm sure I submitted a patch to fix it once, long ago when it happened on Alpha.
