    Ok there are some guys here around that want to start coding for the wii but dont know where to start or cant install linux well its now easy just download my Live cd and download like the source of softchip, open a terminal and go to your softchip folder and then just type make and there is your dol/elf file !

    Howto
    -----------
    Download the ISO File and burn it to a CD.
    Make sure that in your BIOS the boot order is like this 1. CD ROM 2. HARD DRIVE so that it first try's to boot from a cd/dvd.
    Put the cd in the drive and restart the computer, now you see a screen just press enter.
    Now Ubuntu will start and then download the source off an app and then go to Applications --> Terminal.
    Put your sources in the $DEVKITPPC map ( its in the devkitpro folder in the home map)
    Type in the Terminal cd $DEVKITPPC, then CD "source" where source is the name of the folder
    Type make and in the folder is not the dol and elf file

    Note: also its a torrent file but it DOES NOT contain any copyrighted code (just for the moderators)

    PLEASE SEED!

    Download Torrent

    Gambia, The
    700 MB download for a SoftChip .dol you can trust. If you trust nicksasa...

    Just kidding, sounds nice. Are you able to install this ubuntu as regular too? I mean, run live CD, click install, and then you have a ubuntu with a installed devkit and everything you need?

    you can install it as a normal distribution but i dont know if devkitppc wil be also installed and MUCH programs are removed to make the iso file as small as possible like openoffice is remover, totem player is removed,...

    Well, you don't need linux for devkitppc, or for any code versioning tools (exception maybe git)
    They run fine on windows...

    nice i might install this on my portable 120 gig hd it's been collecting dust for some time.
    it's even got a Ubuntu sticker on it cuz i used to use it for screwing around with source code and to show Linux to some friends.

    in advice you to not install it but use UNetBootIn to make a live usb stick of this with this iso but dont use the install function in the live cd as that wont copy the devkitpro folder

    oh well i can just install ubuntu then copy my devkitppc files from my pc's hd, Ubuntu owns!
    i once made a live cd with flash and music codecs on it but forgot that it doesn't install them from it till now.

    no you cant just copy the files you must also edit bashrc or if you just copy that file over then it will also work
