    Yes, true. An easy Installer, which you can set up on Windows or Mac was released on Dec 09 2008. Basicly, the Installer runs from the Wii, you only have to copy some files to a USB-Stck and the SD-Card. Very useful for all the Noobs outthere. Instructions:

    Yeah, I know, but If you want to install one of these, I think it isn't that hard to rename the required Packages for xWhiite and Co and place it at the same location...it should also work then, I think.. [​IMG]

    EDIT: Installer worked, very smooth install, Whiite works too!!!

    EDIT2: Now trying to install XWhiite with the Installer...wish me luck!!!

    No sorry...you'll need a Keyboard for the Installer and for Whiite/XWhiite, etc...

    Is their any way I can unpartition my SD card after doing this? I accidentally ran the installer with my 1GB sd card and I installed whiite by accident instead of Xwhiite, is their any way I can still unpartition my SD card or reinstall xwhiite over the already installed whiite partition.

    Why don't you just back up what is on the partition you can see which contains the homebrew stuff and format t and then copy all that back.. then do the installation steps with the xwhiite instead..

    Following me?

    Yah, but when I format the SD card, it doesn't format the partition that the whiite installer made, and when I try to delete the partition through the windows management, it gives me a fail error. If you know any way that I can format the partition the whiite installer made me, then please tell me how to do it.

    Edit: I tried it out and it works like a charm THX a lot I thought my SD was going to be dead forever lol. When will that channel come out I can't wait?!!!! One more thing, whenever I run the installer, it shows that it is untarring and all that stuff, but when it finishes at 100%, it turns to a black screen and stays that way. When I turn the wii off, and turn it back on and I go to the homebrew channel with the inserted SD card that was partitioned, I don't see the whiite linux app that is supposed to show up which the installer was supposed to create. Does anybody know the problem?

    Yep, had that before...but not on 100%...I solved it simply with pressing a Key on the Keyboard...looks like the installer goes in "Sleep" or something, if it goes too long...

    BTW: Will try Gento today with the installer.

    Little Update:

    Gentoo seems to install fine, but it takes very looooong...

    Instructions:
    But like I said, seems...I get an Error (Failed to start the X-Server, etc...)

    @ganons: Sorry, I don't know...I don't have an Ethernet-Adapter, so I can't download it...

    I got XWiite to work, but I don't see any start bar at the bottom or top of the desktop. Does anyone know how to enable it?
