Hey, I ported Xiptech's mipsnommu version of uClinux-2.4.19 to the PSP. The only hardware support it has currently is the headphone jack's serial port (used by the console and tty implementation), but its a start!
Check it out here: http://df38.dot5hosting.com/~remember/chris/
It mounts a ramdisk as the root filesystem, the root disk image is linked in with the kernel. The disk image has a minimal userland including sh, ls, mkdir, echo, cat, basic stuff like that, built with uClibC. All the executables are statically-linked.
The only way to use it is with some sort of serial port hardware like discussed here: http://forums.ps2dev.org/viewtopic.php?t=5234
Hopefully more people will help now and we can really turn this into something.
Could this be the start of a real attempt to get Linux on the PSP, well lets hope so
