I can't install WINE, nor watch you tube videos either.


I have installed yellow dog 6.2 on my PS3, but can't seem to do anything. I wanted to install programs (such as itunes, vuze, or word), but can't. I seen that a program called WINE would allow that, but I can't even install that. I tried to watch a you tube video on how to do this, but thats not working either. I downloaded and installed the newest flash player and made sure java was enabled, but nothing works. Please help me, I'm so lost.

That's not strictly true. Linux was originally designed for the Intel 386, however people have ported it to almost every conceivable platform.

There is no "right" platform for Linux, all it requires is a computer - be it a mobile phone, PS3 or IBM mainframe. There are "popular" platforms - such as Intel x86, so if you are running Linux on an "unpopular" platform then your software choices will be limited.

Wine is a special case, since Wine is designed to run Windows binaries under Linux, the limitations for Windows binaries also apply - i.e. your processor must be able to run them, which means an Intel x86 (or x86_64) platform.

You're not going to get Wine to run on a mobile phone, PS3 or IBM mainframe.

What you need to do is find native binaries for your platform that will do the job that you need it to do. For the PS3 this may be difficult, since it's not a "popular" Linux platform

I agree with Gzunk on that as he is completely correct. Since a ps2 or other gaming console is an Un-Popular system for running an actual OS, you will find very little that will run on it that is in that category. Sorry.
