BlackRhino GNU/Linux – a free Debian-based GNU/Linux software distribution for the Sony PlayStation 2. It contains over 1,200 software packages to aid in using and creating programs for the Sony PlayStation 2 Linux kit. The programs range in functionality from simple games, to text editors, compilers, web servers, windowing systems, database systems, graphics packages, mail servers and a variety of other tools and utilities.

BlackRhino was created by xRhino in an effort to bring a commercial Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution to the (WAYBACK)Sony PlayStation 2 for hobbyists and developers alike. As events unfolded, BlackRhino became useful in other ways and it was finally apparent that a public release should be made.

BlackRhino is available as a free download, which means users need to place it on a PlayStation 2 and boot to it. The PS2Linux kit provides all the needed hardware (hard drive, network adapter, etc) in addition to an on-disc Linux bootloader.
