Most of IBM's development tools are built for FC5/6. I tried working
with them under Ubuntu, but the amount of time to get everything working
wasn't worth it and they worked out of the box/rpm under an FC6

This stuff includes the SPU/PPU GCC compiler's, IBM's CELL compilers,
the libspe2 library, the binutils, etc., as well as their simulation
environment for not running on a cell machine.

Now, I say this, but frankly, I don't like Fedora. If I could use
Debian/Ubuntu on the PS3, I would, but for the tools support, this is
just the way to go.
