The spicy power team concentrated for openSUSE 10.3 on supporting the Sony Playstation PS3, the major changes are:

  • openSUSE 10.3 is fully installable with YaST on the Sony Playstation PS3

  • a kexec-based bootloader called petitboot is used for PS3

  • There is a development pattern for Cell development on PS3 to easily install the needed packages

Besides the PS3, 10.3 also runs on the previously supported Apple Power Mac, IBM POWER, and Pegasos PPC hardware for details see //en.opensuse.org/POWER@SUSE.
