I got Primegrid running on my PS3 through linux. I was wondering if Seti or other projects work with the Playstation 3?

Dotsch his clients, look for Linux Playstation 3 for the client (6.10.17, pretty much up-to-date).

Seti@Home applications, look for Linux Playstation 3 for Seti Enhanced and Astropulse ports.

Other projects you'll have to check their forums. Not every project has their applications available through open source, or the means to convert the code to work on a PS3.

cool

Do you know how well those work? ON the forum in your link people were saying that its not very efficient. That was in 2007 though. Has the latest build gotten more efficient?

Might be of interest: here is an old thread: "USB pen which will allow people to boot Linux within minutes on the Playstation 3"

Here are some projects which did run or run with PS3.
e.g. Yoyo@Home works on PS3, see also this
