WIT in Debian

published 2013-01-02, last modified 2019-02-04 in tag debian

I just uploaded wit-2.10a to Debian experimental (it has to pass the NEW queue first, though).

WIT (Wiimms ISO Tools) is a set of command-line tools to manipulate Wii and GameCube ISO images and WBFS containers. It is useful (for me) to store backups of my Wii games on a USB hard disk drive. This saves me the optical disc juggling, doesn’t wear off the discs as fast and gives faster load times.

Here is an example session where I format one partition of the USB hard disk with WBFS and then copy my old WBFS image over to it:

$ wwt format -v --force /dev/sde3

wwt: Wiimms WBFS Tool v2.10a r0 x86_64 - Dirk Clemens - 2013-01-02

FORMAT BLOCK DEVICE /dev/sde3 [172 GiB, hss=512]
** 1 file formatted.

$ wwt add --part /dev/sde3 /media/sde1/wbfs/The\ Legend\ of\ Zelda\ Skyward\ Sword\ \[SOUP01\]/*.wbfs
