Hi all, I am in the process of teaching myself computer science, currently studying servers and databases using Lynda.com videos. I am interested in creating a home server to play around with, and while looking at what old hardware I have lying around I noticed my Wii U gathering dust. Since nobody has powered it on in over a year, I have no interest in preserving the native OS and gaming functionality. I want to use it as a Linux home server for learning purposes. I am fairly tech savvy, have successfully installed and done basic troubleshooting for an Ubuntu install on an old MacBook, and am comfortable with the command line. I have looked around for instructions, and the stickies in this board and others are very well developed, but since I am trying to do something slightly different (wiping vs. running homebrew) I need some help to adapt the existing instructions to my particular situation. A few questions: 1) Is what I want to do currently possible? 2) If possible, would it make sense to do this, or are there problems I am unaware of that would make it too much of a pain in the ass? 3) I see that FlimFlam69's kernel exploit uses the SD slot, and I see elsewhere that SD cards can be used for the installation media. What else would be required for running the installer? 4) After a lot of Googling, I could not find any tutorials or instructions that seemed to pertain to my situation, but if you know of any, can you please post a link? Thank you!
