Yeah 4gb is fine, im using a 4gb usb rn
Hey, congrats on getting XFCE working! (Late to the party, I've been busy IRL.)
Lol, no probs, thanks tho! Was pretty hard because I had to change repositories and set xorg to not boot at start
I'm just gonna wait for a tutorial. Thanks for your hard work, @Loller06!
No probs , i'll see when i'll be capable of writing the tutorial (goddamn school grr)
@Loller06: Let's chat about a tutorial, maybe we should integrate it right onto the official Gitlab page? PM me.
Here's the feedback. I booted it up today and my eyes were wide open after I entered "startx". It took a bit to boot up but was working very nice from there ... at least from a functional point of view. Technically everything's pretty slow as you said. Also it's pointless without WiFi (I don't have a LAN adapter) and I wasn't able to figure out how to use Bluetooth tethering but as a proof of concept it's just pretty cool.
Unfortunately the only pre installed game (Chromium B.S.U.) did not run. I guess it would have lagged badly nevertheless lol.
All in all good work!

Of course we can, but i have to study sooooo much, idk when ill have free time, maybe saturday
Glad you liked it! Hope i'll get maybe WINE working with some workaround, idk

Good link. As written there WINE won't work on Wii U's PPC but QEMU might help.
However if even dragging a terminal window around takes ages, this won't get us any far unless we have some sweet graphic drivers.
It's worth getting it to run though so we can enjoy it right away when drivers are finished.
LXQt working! It seems equals to xfce4 as speed so not that much of changes, but still a nice UI! I would like to try Android as there is a PPC build owo
You're the man! Keep trying things!
OMG it actually looks Awesome!
re: slow GUIs, any GUI will be quite slow right now, as we have no GPU acceleration. All we've got is a framebuffer, and that's likely to end up in the Wii U's slow RAM instead of the fast RAM that framebuffers are normally put in with CafeOS-based homebrew.
Yeah I know, there aren't gpu drivers so any graphic thing is very slow, but my will was to find the desktop environment that would take the least resources
guy thanks to your tests please... try do a script or a step-step how to install the desktop environments without autostart the X.org server
i know that will became slow too but see gnome3, enlightment, mate, kde, openbox running on wiiu will be very cool xD
Today I should have some free time so expect a tutorial, I'll just PM @CompuCat when I'll be ready
Getting a GUI working on wiiu-linux!
Removed until new advice
Epic! Thanks for your time and work!
Glad you actually liked it! If you have any suggestion tell me!
