    here are the links you need to install linux onto the wii. i followed these and i am running ubuntu. it will be easier if you are running linux of some sort, so burn any linux live cd before you start, copy the guides and data so your ready, and put the os onto the sd card. any questions just throw'em back

    step 1 - prep sd card WL:whiite-linux - GamecubeLinux Wiki

    when you get to this section "Installation of the root filesystem"

    just unzip the distro that you got from here http://ben64.com/debian-etch-4.0+whi...te-0.1.tar.bz2

    the tutorial is very well written, just copy the commands line for line

    a little clarification please......

    So if I understand this correctly, you have to be currently running linux on your pc for this to be installed on the wii?



    thanks,

    you could just throw in a live cd, such as Ubuntu, if linux is not on your pc. the linux instructions in my earlier post were the easiest i found, and that includes windows. simply because its just a copy paste job.

    however i think its just a toy at the moment, as the wii's wifi does not work, making it not very useful to me. but still very interesting indeed. if you find a easier tut natedisme, then please post it. thanks
