Wii Linux



This is awesome news from the GameCube Linux Wiki:

24 Feb 2008: Long time, no see 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 release we have added support for the USB Gecko 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. We have released a small usbgecko-enabled Proof of Concept mini-distro to prove it. Did I say have fun? :)

On a side note, I’m trying to put some instructions together for getting a dev environment set up with libogc and devkitPro. I’m not going to be able to test without a Wii, but this looks like a good place to start. Shout out in the comments if you know of any good Wii dev howtos that have sprouted up.

    Amazing. Too bad the youtube video didn’t have the second song he plays–I wanted to see that.

    He might need to fix how the notes come at you, because they look like they’re coming at you slowly, and then zoom past you before you have to hit him. Looks very playable.

    I’m too young to have ever had a C64… when I first saw this I thought he made it for the N64 and that got me stunned.

    Is he planning on posting code/schematics for the PSX-DB9 converter?

    Here’s the second video:

    I hope he ends up posting the schematics. Right now, it looks like he’s just selling it. My guess is that most folks would still buy it even if he posted it, but it would be neat for those who want to understand how it all works.

    Nice! Thanks for the schematics.
