    Test by self.

    Just rename the folder your Linux kernel elf is in to "Linux-Kernel"

    Then everytime there is an updated version of the linux kernel it will load it from this folder.

    If you are like me and love to experiment with these Linux distros...especially xwhiite w/ the C64 emulator.. This will work perfect!'

    Extra special thanks to Space Jump for helping me put this together. A few of us wanted this and now we have it! [​IMG]

    Does that mean we can format an entire SD card to Ext3 and use it for Linux, without any FAT partition for the kernel?

    You would still have to use one of the methods of installing the Linux distro to the Ext3 on your SD card... this is just so we can start it up from the system menu... also it is prepared to handle any updates to the kernel.elf/dol that it needs to run the distro by just simply replacing the old kernel with the new kernel in the apps folder that contains the kernel for loading the distros to the Wii...

    ***This folder has to be named in the apps folder "Linux-Kernel" for it to successfully start running the distro you installed to ext3.

    So basically you can use either of the 2 current methods of installing the distro to ext3 this just helps with loading your Linux up a little faster instead of going through the HBC everytime....feel me?!
