When connecting to the Wii an USB external hard drive featuring music and video files, can somehow this Linux be utilized as an UPnP server? Or at least, as a regular file server, seeing the USB disk as a shared network folder, accessible from Windows or Android?
Any clues?

I'm wondering if I can use something like this to be able to play MUDs like aardwolf. Does anyone know if that would be possible?

I found that you can just run telnet in the terminal and connect to aardwolf that way. For anyone that might play it, you will probably want to make the background of the terminal black and the foreground white to make it readable. I can't seem to get my settings to permanently save for .Xresources or .Xdefault if anyone could help with that i would greatly appreciate it. Also i'm not sure i get some of the previous comments... is there a way to increase the ram? Thanks

It is quite possible that Android does not include the necessary binaries. Android is not a full Linux installation, and as such does not include every tool that a regular Linux installation will include. My advice would be just do it on a regular Linux distro (run it in a virtual machine if you don't want to install as second OS on your computer just for this).

I should have specified that I was running CyanogenMod 7.1. That ROM actually had the tools necessary included, otherwise I would have gotten a "command not found" message. Each command actually responded and ran properly, there was just.....no effect on the file.

I'm using this build but instead of using the kernel and .img as they are I decided to dd it to an ext2 partition and use it as a normal filesystem with Farter's vfb kernel. It works AWESOMELY well. Has to be the easiest way to get a Debian 6 installation. I've got a lot of space so I run XFCE and have moved swap to my external HDD.
Thanks for taking the time to set Squeeze up. I tried to upgrade my Lenny install but I got a lot of errors.
Might try upgrading this to Wheezy though... just to see if it will

I have downloaded the Linux folder twice now and the .elf file doesn't find necessary files in the .img file, and when I inspect the .img file on my computer, I get a message saying the file is corrupted. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Will the DVD function work on the newer Wii's?
