    Today i bought a new usb keyboard for the wii, and i decided to install whiite linux. I put the 3 files of the whiite linux bundle on the root of my 4 gb pendrive ( I did NOT uncompress them). I then put mikep 5.110 installer on a blank sd card and ran it through HBC. It gave errors like: "cannot open root of device rvlsda2 or unknown-block(62,2)
    Please append to a correct "root-" boot option: here are the available partitions: rvlsda (driver?), rvlsda1
    Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown block(62,2) Rebooting in 180 seconds..."
    Then i tried whiite linux installer beta, but i couldnt get through the disclaimer, assuming that it didnt recognise my USB keyboard (which I have tested with homebrew games). What am I doing wrong?

    I will upload a EWL pack when I have time, it´s hard to find in internet. Try some torrent in the mean time, maybe you have luck.

    Thank you for your help, WiiBrew forum is still down. I'm assuming it's a problem on their side since the site haven't worked for me with 2 PCs. I think I can wait a little more until Wii Linux.
