CNET is reporting that Czech company Blokman Trading has ported Linux 2.4 to the Playstation. A 25 MB kernel source download is available at http://www.runix.ru, and a beta release of the OS is slated for July.

The company says it plans to supply a hardware add-on kit providing memory extensions and ports for the Playstation in October, as well as a gaming SDK and "office package" by the end of the year. It's also working on bringing its work to the PlayStation2.

All the code the company provides will be made available under the GPL.
