There's been recent hay made on an alpha Linux distribution,
www.runix.ru, for the Playstation ONE?!?!
Anyone know what chip the PS1 uses? I didn't think it would have
the MMU, let alone the memory and I/O capability, to run anything
*ix in nature. Is there a secret full function serial port on the
PS1 like the Dreamcast has to uses as a console and/or I/O port?
Thoughts? Comments? Brick bats?
