This is massive news! For years, when I tried to load Linux, I would get no signal. I don't just mean a black screen, no; I mean absolutely zilch. Nothing was coming through the cable. As of today, I finally have light.

There's an installation guide HERE (CTRL+F for Install) and in place of those files use the bzImage etc from this thread for Baikal support.


I was wondering, I've been trying to connect a external mic to make it work psxitarch v2 and it showed no input at all. I tried a snowball ice an a razer seiren x, both show no input, is there anyway to make them work?

Please report your experiences. I'm having trouble with WiFi and Ethernet. I tried to use a USB WiFi dongle, but it's hard to install the firmware packages offline because of all the dependencies.
