I hate when I forget to think of a title

I now have Linux on my PS3; it’s not really going to cut it as a desktop replacement…
Here’s the output from top while totem is playing an SD MPEG-2 stream off a DVD+R.

The lack of any Graphics acceleration really hurts it. It can’t play the aforementioned SD content rescaled to fullscreen (fullscreen being 1920×1200).

Also, however you add it up the CPU% doesn’t equal 100 or anything like it; so either something’s using and/or counting the SPEs or there’s a bug in top somewhere.
