The Game Cube needs a Linux kernel that is compiled specifically for
it, so a generic Power PC Debian distribution will not work out of the
box. In addition, the discs are copy protected such that you can not
make your own Game Cube disks without modifying your Game Cube.

There is a serial port on the Game Cube, but you would have to be able
to build an adapter yourself, as I don't believe any commercial

If you're able to provide a Game Cube kernel, I believe a stock
distribution should work.
