Ubuntu 14.04 running on PS4 5.05

Post by KLINUX » Tue Jun 12, 2018 9:00 pm

Hi,

I managed to launch Ubuntu 14.04 (16.04 doesn't seems to start) using the same tutorial that was posted here http://wololo.net/2016/04/06/tutorial-r ... tu-on-ps4/ and used the kernel and the initramfs of the PSXITARCH distro posted here http://playstation-3.logic-sunrise.com/ ... nible.html . the splashscreen doesn't show (white & black dots like CRT with no signal) and after some seconds it starts and it fully works without any problems, aside the GPU which is slow even when using glxgears trick.

I hope this begining will be useful for everyone and for developpers on optimising the GPU for this useful distro.

Best regards

I was just going to ask for a distro with GPU HW acceleration. But it seems after 1.76 Linux debut, there're no improvements on this area.

The tutorials I found are all about 1.76 and still there's no full GPU HW acceleration. After 5.05 exploit I thought there'd be something..

I am still trying to compile the necessary drivers for HW acceleration using fail0verflow's patches found here https://github.com/fail0verflow/ps4-radeon-patches , but I still have problem running them.

If I have some result I will post a full distro image ready to use, otherwise if someone want/could help please contact me.

Best regards
