== Installing Wii-Linux ==
*Can someone help me installing it? I have a 2GB SD card (FAT) with homebrew and the wii-linux boot.dol on it and a 8GB USB-drive. The USB-drive has an ext3 filesystem and I extracted the whiite-files on it. But when I try to start wii-linux through the HBC it says that it can't mount the root filesystem and when I load it through bannerbomb I only get a black screen. What can I do to get it running? --[[User:Jannis234|Jannis234]] 15:10, 9 July 2011 (CEST)**:I found the problem: Wii-Linux is searching for the root filesystem on sda2 (sd-card) but I installed it on the usb drive (sdb2?). How can I get Wii-Linux to mount the root filesystem form the usb drive and not from the sd-card? --[[User:Jannis234|Jannis234]] 23:01, 9 July 2011 (CEST)
== Debian 6 (squeeze) on the Wii? ==
Is it possible to upgrade whiite to debian 6? I tried updating with apt-get but it showed me a lot of errors while booting and most of the wii's hardware didn't work. --[[User:Jannis234|Jannis234]] 16:43, 13 September 2011 (CEST)
 
I had a look at this, but to be honest it doesn't seem quite feasible. My guess would be that components of whiite are replaced upon update. Guess we have to wait for the team to release a new version of whiite, but they'll probably wait for the next kernel update if they do decide to.
Whats wrong with lenny? Everything seems fine to me, although the default repositories in sources.list don't have all packages so I end up using ftp.au.debian.org/debian. <small>—Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:Rothux|Rothux]] ([[User talk:Rothux|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Rothux|contribs]]) 19:42, 6 November 2011 (CEST)</small>
 
I did try upgrading to Squeeze, and it worked. [[User:Tux|Tux]] 10:29, 2 January 2012 (CET)
 
== Direct Boot on Bootmii IOS ==
 
In case anyone hasn't figured this out, you can usually install priiloader on a bootmii ios wii. In priiloader, you select to boot to bootmii, and then put the mike kernel on your SD card in the bootmii directory, replacing the ppcboot.elf. This allows for direct booting. Using the new kernel through bootmii ios, you can have wifi and dvd support too.

== BootMii ==
 
Everything says "Boot with bootmii" but I can't figure out how. There is only one wii linux app on my SD card and it boots fine. I'm not using mini or anything. But when I try to boot the wii-linux elf file with bootmii, it fails to boot the file. Then, I downloaded mini and tried booting it with bootmii and my TV went crazy for a bit, then displayed a nice console and I saw that it couldn't find the WiFi card. I really want the Wi-Fi thing. DOes anyone know whats wrong with this? [[User:Misson20000|Misson20000]] 16:14, 14 December 2011 (CET)
:The answer above mine doesn't make sense to me <small>—Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:Misson20000|Misson20000]] ([[User talk:Misson20000|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/Misson20000|contribs]]) 16:17, 14 December 2011 (CET)</small>
:The answer is [http://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comments/28ppp6/installing_bootmii_as_boot2_so_goodbye_wiimote/ reddit] and you can boot Mini only from boot2,and if you BootMii(latest version) IOS user then you can use wifi and DVD without boot2 or mini preload proof is [http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Libiso9660 Libiso9660] also [http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Hextwelve Hextwelve]. You problem is you tried boot mini kernel from boot1(BootMii IOS) loader without "old" IOS(and you can not install them because BootMii is IOS and on boot1,you can try downgrade System menu version with DVDx patches etc but I sure it will break your Wii) with hardware support. --[[User:DanilS|DanilS]] ([[User talk:DanilS|talk]]) 14:55, 6 March 2015 (CET)
 
== Port Request ==
 
I know this may seem like a lot to ask but if it's possible would someone please
port an ubuntu version over to the wii.
 
I have all these links
which should help you know more about ubuntu
 
on this page[https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements]
it says that ubuntu's desktop os used to use GNOME Panel
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNOME_Panel]
as a gui in their previous releases and that after a few different releases went on to use unity
[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unity_Linux]
as it's new gui,it also states that in order
to run unity the system needs a more capable graphics adapter
[https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DemystifyingUnityGraphicsHardwareRequirements]
it also needs more ram but
you could leave that out since
i'm not asking to port the desktop version but the
powerpc version [https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCDownloads]
which i'm guessing uses some of the same stuff as the desktop version but with less
hardware requirements and less ram usage,
like i said though all i'm asking is for ubuntu to be ported over
and i'm sure everyone else would like that ported over as well
because of all the stuff you could do with it.
thanks in advance to someone who ports ubuntu over.--[[User:Umashi|Umashi]] 14:38, 20 March 2012 (CET)
