While we're (sort of) on the subject -

could an OG PS3 running YellowDog Linux be adapted for mining?

I know the answer is likely Yes, now someone with more Linux experience than me needs to make it happen. And post step-by-step instructions.

Or, even better, Kickstart it!

If it's running Linux, just download CGMiner or something in it's source form (not a package) and simply follow the steps in the readme file (how to make / make-install).
Should be up and running in a matter of minutes...

Unfortunately it won't do much better than a modern CPU. 38 kHash/s mining litecoin. Save your electricity pal!

It's pretty much like a spoon and a knife. Both are utensils, but they are not exchangeable for eachothers tasks.

I have used a spoon to cut things and also used a knife to eat soup (to prove a point) - my point is that both methods were inefficient but cool nonetheless.

I would love to see what an XBOX and XBOX 360s could do, maybe even PS3s i've heard of the PS3 being used in High Performance clusters for various things - if i remember correctly the US has banned sending games consoles to certain countries to prevent them having access to cheap high performance computers...

This account was hacked & possibly sold during the period of August 1st and October 24th 2017.
Anything done or said in this period wasnt me.
Many thanks to Cyrus for his help restoring access to my account.

Well i do know the PS3 used to be able to run Linux (OtherOS) but has been disabled since.
