| ||Compiled For Your Convenience|
A bunch of useful scripts, binaries, etc of all the stuff you're likely to compile yourself, to help get things up and running quickly when installing a new Linux Kit.
If you have compiled something and would like to submit it to the project, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with an attachment or link. The full list of project admins is available on the project page.
A list of links to useful ps2linux related websites is in the "Docs" tab.

| ||Linux Framebuffer for PS2||The aim of this project is to develop a Linux framebuffer driver for the Playstation2 that replaces the GS video driver that comes with the kit. The final goal is to test many non-X11 Linux libraries and applications for the embedded world that are based on the framebuffer abstraction (e.g. the Qt/Embedded library) and therefore cannot be used with the non-framebuffer based ps2gs driver. Examples of target applications: Konqueror web browser, Embedded Mozilla, Qtopia, etc.||None|
| ||Playstation 2 Linux System Documentation||The P2LSD Project provides documentation for setting up, using and programming for the Playstation 2 Linux system. Items included in the project are FAQs, HOW-TOs and Handbooks about very specific PS2 Linux topics such as "How to use the IPU" and "The Memory Card FAQ".||None|
| ||PS2 Hardware in Linux HOWTOs||The hardware manuals do a great job of describing the PS2 hardware in fine detail. However, they were written before the Linux kit existed, and thus do not refer to methods of using the PS2 hardware from Linux.
Linux is an operating system that is itself widely documented, tutorials on using Linux exist all over the net.
This project's aim is to bridge the gap - to answer questions directly relating to accessing and using the PS2 hardware from the linux kit.||None|
| ||ps2linux: the basics||this project is meant to teach complete n00b's, and any one else, how to do just about anything on ps2 linux starting with the basics (comands,ect.).in the end hopefuly the forums will only need to deal with advanced technical questions. I'll post as i learn.
Help greatly appreciated.||None|
| ||Qtopia for PS2 Linux||This project was created to build the Playstation 2 a fully functional UI while at the same time using as little resources as possible but maintaining performance.||None|
| ||The BlackRhino Linux Distribution||BlackRhino is a free Debian-based GNU/Linux software distribution for the Sony PlayStation 2.
It contains over 1,200 software packages to aid in using and creating programs for the Sony PlayStation 2 GNU/Linux kit. The software packages range in functionality from simple games, to text editors, compilers, web servers, windowing systems, database systems, graphics packages, mail servers and a variety of other tools and utilities.
It is released in the hopes that an up-to-date Linux distribution will aid hobbyist game and embedded systems programmers in gaining new skills and creating new software for the PS2 Linux system.
