PS2 Linux (Linux for PlayStation 2 or PS2 Linux Kit) – a kit released by Sony in 2002 for the PlayStation 2 console. The kit includes GNU/Linux based operating system, keyboard, mouse, video adapter, network adapter and 40 GB hard drive, and allows the PlayStation 2 console to be used as a personal computer.

Only the SCPH-30000 model of the PS2 console is officially adapted to run Linux. The SCPH-50000 model allows you to run Linux only after updating the network adapter driver. The SCPH-70000 and SCPH-90000 versions (slim version) do not work with Linux on PS2 at all.

PS2 Linux distribution is based on Kondara MNU/Linux, a Japanese distribution itself based on Red Hat Linux.

Before installing the system, the console memory card must be formatted, which means that all game state records are removed from it.
