    Rev Linux for Wii Released - The Wii Homebrew Explosion Continues

    The Gamecube Linux team have today released a Proof Of Concept version of Linux for the Nintendo Wii, heres the release news:

    Although we haven't posted any news in the last 2 years, we have silently continued our work keeping the kernel patches up to date. With the latest 2.6.24 (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gc-...24-gc.patch.gz) release we have added support for the USB Gecko (http://www.usbgecko.com/faq.htm) adapter as a console and terminal, so you can now logon into your gc-linux distro using minicom or HyperTerminal (TM). And last but not least, we have finally run natively Linux on the Nintendo Wii through Team Tweezers' twilight-hack (http://wiibrew.org/index.php?title=Twilight_Hack). We have released a small usbgecko-enabled Proof of Concept (http://downloads.sourceforge.net/gc-...ux-PoC-0.1.tgz) mini-distro to prove it. Did I say have fun?

    What awesome news

    Wow, so even Linux has been squeezed into the Wii huh? I too should think about getting this game soon, don't want to have a patched one that would prevent me running homebrew on the recently fould exploit.

    yeah, i would be pissed if i get a patched one..
    btw, i ordered super mario galaxy, i should get it today probably..
    i bought smg `cus zelda doesn`t look fun anymore, in 3d :P
    i have beaten hourglass, but i was very disapointed when i realised that you can`t save after the last boss..
    so i`m gonna buy zelda TP just for homebrew..

    EDIT: The first zelda on nes is by far the best zelda game EVER!

    I would love to run it, but I won't be able to until an internal sd loader is made. After one of those is made the wii scene will explode. I am patiently awaiting that time

    Amazing, lots of possibilities here
    Still waiting for an update that doesn't require extra hardware though but I'm sure that's not too far off.

    does anyone know how far this boots?
    i mean, do you even get into X? or is it just running the kernel?
