Meet Mii

WiiLi is a Linux port in the works for the Nintendo Wii. Drivers are being developed for Wii features, including the SD card slot, the wireless 802.11b/g and Bluetooth hardware, and for the remote.

A proof-of-concept Wii distribution was rolled out earlier this year by the GameCube Linux project. It relies on a Twilight Hack developed by Team Twiizers. The hack leverages an exploit in a Wii game title to launch a Linux bootloader (see video).

We're eager to see Linux on the Wii. In the meanwhile, settle for seeing Linux Journal on the Wii -- we all have our own Miis here in the office. Add Linux Journal as a Wii friend and we'll send you any LJ staffers you'd like. :-) Our console number is: 2924 2525 5556 2687 (post yours in the comments below and we'll add you too).

what do you say

I haven't heard of WiiLi

florida plumber's picture

I haven't heard of WiiLi before, but it does sound interesting. My only problem is, although I am fairly computer literate and know more than the average Joe in regards to computers, I can't, for the life of me, understand OS lingo. So when you say "Linux port", all that pops up in my head is a big ole' question mark, haha... I'll check out the Wii Linux site, though...

Late, but...

Thats awesome! I can't wait.

Thats awesome! I can't wait. Would be cool if you could plug in a USB keyboard and use the wiimote as a mouse.

And I think what we also need is a homebrew application that allows you to copy "protected" save files from and into the Wii's internal memory. It's ridiculous that you can't copy SSBB's save file to an SD card.

Looking for more info on free psp games?

Quite Proud

I must admit, I'm pretty proud of my "lowered mustache soulpatch" -- but at home my Mii has a big pair of pimpin' sunglasses too... :)

Webinar
One Click, Universal Protection: Implementing Centralized Security Policies on Linux Systems

As Linux continues to play an ever increasing role in corporate data centers and institutions, ensuring the integrity and protection of these systems must be a priority. With 60% of the world's websites and an increasing share of organization's mission-critical workloads running on Linux, failing to stop malware and other advanced threats on Linux can increasingly impact an organization's reputation and bottom line.

Webinar
Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
