WiiSpeak Support/Driver?

Just bought one, and wondering if the will be support for it in wii linux. And if you write a driver for it (USB Stack) then please send it upstream? then we could use it on any linux PC.

Name change?

Is Gamecube Linux always going to be call gamecube linux? Seems a tad bit bland, don't you think? How about something more interesting, like Linux Cubed (Linux3)? Also, out of curiosity, is it possible to link a hard-disk to one of the GameCube's Memory Card ports? --Netdroid9

More accurately, "GNU/Linux on the Nintendo GameCube", so no, no fancy unintuitive renaming there.

As for interfacing with EXI, unlikely. There have been experiments to interface with the HSP, however. Search dextrose or gcdev forums. --Apgo 05:28, 17 Nov 2005 (PST)

Dead wiki?

Is anyone still active on this wiki? I notice none of the admins have edited for months which is a problem since the main page and Template:News are protected and therefore really out of date. Considering the problems with spam and timeouts here too, I think it would be worth moving this content to The Linux Wiki. Both sites are GFDL, so there's no problem moving content between them. For now, I'll just create subpages on the Linux Wiki, but if there are people interested in editing there, perhaps we could move the whole wiki (and the users who aren't spammers) over to its own site on Wikia. You can contact me on my talk page on the Linux Wiki. Angela 22:45, 13 Oct 2006 (PDT)

I am still here, but I just joined yesterday. I am wondering the same thing. Try creating a puppett and destroying some stuff, thatll get their attention if they are active. (note:dont actualy do that.) But what were the username pages for the admins, i couldn find any of em. Jmoney 13:49, 28 Nov 2006 (PST)
I think the administrators had abandoned this wiki, and i guess the work to bring linux for gc also does not exist more.Repgahroll10:32, 1 Dec 2006 (PST)
A wiki is dead when their users stop maintaining it. This wiki is open for anyone who wants and has the time to contribute something. --isobel 12:09, 1 Dec 2006 (PST)
There isn't always news to post. Not to mention the developers of gc-linux have lives outside of this project. BTW, I've been trying to add some stuff in here and fix some things. --Losinggeneration 14:18, 8 Dec 2006 (PST)
I came here today, 26 Feb 2008, from the [story] - but the content "And last but not least, we have finally run natively Linux on the Nintendo Wii through Team Tweezers' twilight-hack" is not content that can be used for most people to do something. Furthermore, because the home page is locked down I couln't fix it up even if I was going to research it. Right now I'm under the impression that there is no Linux for the Wii, and if there is, it will be some weird distribution rather than something standard that would take too much maintenance by both user and the over-stretched hacking team.

The term Proof of Concept is used extensively in the news to designate the state of the released material, a Linux kernel and a busybox-based mini-distribution that can be accessed through a serial line. Nothing more and nothing less than that, for now. BTW, thanks for the link. --isobel 10:59, 27 Feb 2008 (PST)

GC-Linux abandoned?

Someone knows if they are working in the project to bring linux on gamecube? I think we will never see something as Xubuntu (Linux on Xbox) in our gamecube. Somebody confirms? Repgahroll10:34, 1 Dec 2006 (PST)

Personally, I had never the intention of building a full featured and fully bloated distro for the Nintendo GameCube. Porting the Linux kernel with support for all the existing hardware and building special purpose mini distros for specific tasks (playing games, playing video/audio, etc.) seems a lot more appropiate to a system with 24MB of RAM and limited network connectivity. But you can run whatever distro fits. I run Debian on my cubes. --isobel 12:21, 1 Dec 2006 (PST)

Agreed. Debian is a full-featured distro (there is nothing with much more in it than Debian) but since Debian also goes very small it is very well suited to resource limited systems like the 'cube. What do you *want* to do with your cube that Debian doesn't provide code for? As far as I am aware the only real issue at the moment if the colour damage caused by the YUV framebuffer (solved by Isobel's GC customized SDL port and its corresponding X server). I guess if someone wants to move things forward then rather than mess about cloning the wiki they should create a custom apt repository with things like isobel's SDL port, my X server and libgx in it. --Daniel Thompson 12:26, 3 Dec 2006 (PST)

Acting Admin

Who is the acting admin? It would also help if I got their email. I want to either move this to my servers for ownage or just pay them to host it. Mabey update the main page once in a fortnight. Thx -Jmoney

There is no intention in moving this wiki or re-hosting it. The admins of the wiki are listed in the usual page. Drop by #gc-linux @ oftc or post here if you have something worth to say in the front page. The vast majority of the wiki is open and can be updated at will. Only a few pages were protected to avoid wikispam and continuous vandalism. So, if you like to see something which is not already there just click on the edit button or create a new page. --isobel 00:02, 3 Dec 2006 (PST)

New version of mfe?

It would be nice if you makes one that reproduces playlists, or at least when finishing a music it plays the next one. Sorry my bad English --Repgahroll 08:16, 2 Apr 2007 (PDT)

black screen error?

i selected whiite linux from the homebrew channel and i only get a black screen it never starts what do i do

ok its working now i waited until it installized the internet connection for the homebrew channel it ran the scripts and started openbsd, bluetooth, poriodic command scheduler, and the local boot scripts now its says:

Debian GNU/Linux 4.0 whiite ttyl

its been sitting there for a while whatever that means???

It's waiting for you to enter a username/password. You probably don't see that text at the bottom of the screen because your tv does a lot of overscan. Recent kernel images (newest as of today is mikep4) include overscan compensation. --isobel 05:42, 25 Nov 2009 (UTC)
