Hi,

I'm in charge of building ARAnyM on PlayStation3.
I have a few difficulties. I use the experimental livecd with kboot from



The French keyboard configuration (AZERTY) is not available, and the key
SDL_image library is not included in the distribution. I think that the
second problem of missing library explains why it fails when launching
ARAnyM. In facts, it reports problems at initializing SDL library from
Gentoo distribution. Let me comment some reports.

Somebody may help me in my quest of building with Gentoo / PS3 ?

Best regards,
