    So Yellow Dog Linux 6.0 is installing on my PS3 right now. I was wondering how i install VLC Media Player? On their website it only lists the options for other linux distributions, can i just use one of those? If i can't install VLC Media player, what can i use to watch movies i have got on my PS3? (.AVI, HD formats).

    I don't have much experience with YDL but i think you just add it through the add and remove programs. You probably should have installed ubuntu.

    I learned recently that the graphics drivers are locked. So there isn't much to do on there. You can install VLC by downloading the source code, compiling and installing it. Its not that hard. Just need some command line work. But the video will most likely be quite choppy and hard to watch.

    I have found out that the only way to have the proper codec's and what not that is needed for proper video and sound playback cost money with YDL. Epic fail. Ubuntu is redownloading.

    It's installing ubuntu right now, well it's at and has been at for a while:
    Code:
    ps3-ehci-driver sb_05: USB bus 1 deregistered
    There's a couple of these lines with different numbers... Why is it disabling my USB slots?
