  1. The red ribbon rc6 uses the 8cores of cell?

    • Hi,

      Yes, Red Ribbon uses the two PPEs and the seven enabled SPEs of cell (the 8th SPE has been disabled during manufacturing).

      You can verify it by executing the next command on a terminal:

      cat /proc/cpuinfo


  2. Does the livecd come with the kernel sources+patches? Thanks!

    • Hi,

      The LiveCD is limited in size and It includes only the necessary packages.

      The kernel headers are included to allow compile modules. But if you need to compile a complete kernel, you can download the kernel from the official website and apply the Gitbrew’s patches.

      Best regards

  3. The red ribbon uses all of the ps3 hardware?
    Have unrestricted acess of the ps3?
    Can i install fluxbox ?

    • Hi,

      Unfortunately, only 224 MB of the 256 MB of RAM are available for OtherOS and the RSX driver is still in development.

      Yes, you can install the window manager that you want, if It is available in the repository.
