Proceeding their Internal PS4 HDD Linux Installation video, the IT Mania YouTube Channel folks recently released some noteworthy ITMania Linux Updates for PS4 including the latest emulators, Vulkan drivers and Kodi / Steam support among others for both retrogaming and running newer games such as Doom Eternal, MK11: Aftermath and Batman: Arkham Origins. šŸ§

Like Fedora PS4 Linux, PS4 Manjaro Linux, Gentoo PS4 Linux with the Baikal Chip Patches and PSXITArch Linux via PSXITA the installation process for IT Mania's Linux Distribution for PS4 is similar with a brief outline from @FalconX below:
  • Format stick to Fat32
  • Copy img (for example, the latest release with Manjaro) to the stick
  • Rename the Manjaro image to psxitarch.tar.xz
  • Copy 2 kernel files from PSXITArch (or link below)
  • On PS4 go to PSXITArch website and run the payload
  • PS4 reboots
  • Enter ""
  • When it's finished "exec"
From the video's description, roughly translated: Release- Manjaro 20.0.2 (Lysia). PS4Linux. Run Doom Eternal. MK11: Aftermath. Batman: Arkham Origins

My release is Manjaro 20.0.2 (Lysia) on the PlayStation 4. It's also Catjaro PS4Linux. The latest mesa-git (20.2.0), libdrm-git (2.4.102) at the time of release.

What is included:
  • PCSX-Reloaded - PS One Emulator
  • PCSX2 - PS2 emulator (ver. 1.6.0)
  • PCSX3 - PS3 emulator with Vulkan (the latest at the time of release)
  • PPSSPP - PSP emulator
  • RetroArch - ver. 1.8.8 (the latest at the time of release)
  • Dolphin Emu - Wii and Gameube emulator (ver. 5.0 with vulkan support)
  • Wine-Staging 5.9 with DXVK 1.7 and add. libraries including mfplat. To use DXVK 1.7, you need a kernel 4.20 or higher. If you are using the 4.14.93 kernel, then roll back to version 1.5.3
  • Also Kodi, Lutris, Chromium ..
To start Doom Eternal, you need to start the kernel 4.20 or higher, enable SWAP, run payload 3Gb and use Proton 5.0.7 in the Downloads folder.

We connect SWAP:
$ sudo fallocate -l 2G / swapfile
$ sudo chmod 600 / swapfile
$ sudo mkswap / swapfile
$ sudo swapon / swapfile
To activate ESYNC, type in the terminal:
$ export WINEESYNC = 1
Doom Eternal does not start with ACO, so we use LLVM.. To display the FPS counter and other things, you can use MANGOHUD or in the game itself in the settings.. Command to run:
$ RADV_PERFTEST = llvm MANGOHUD = 1 /home/itmania/Downloads/wine-5.0-7-proton-amd64/bin/wine DOOMEternalx64vk.exe

1) Why didn't you immediately make XFCE and recommend installing it yourself?

Bare from XFCE turnip after installation consumes about 350-400Mb of RAM, while Manjaro XFCE about 800Mb due to beauty and additional programs.

2) How to update the system?
sudo pacman -Syu
3) Why Manjaro, but what about Fedora?

On arch it was easier to experiment with drivers, I still consider Fedora the best Linux distribution and in the future there will be a Fedora 32 release.

4) Why doesn't my game start in Lutris and the video card is not found?

Because you are using the old 4.14 kernel with dxvk above 1.5.3

5) How to install another working environment?
6) Where to download the kernel 5.3.18-ITmania?
It seems to have written everything.. :tup:

adding swap:
sudo fallocate -l 2G / swapfile

anyone else getting errors, remove the space between / and swapfile.
like : sudo fallocate -l 2G /swapfile
in all the lines shown.
Confirmed it works now

type : swapon -s
