Following is also online at
If you want cross gcc you might try links at http://lena.fnet.fr/
* Get a crosscompiling environment from
ftp://bolug.uni-bonn.de/mips/. You'll find cross-egcs and
* Get the latest kernel source tree from the cvs server, from the
4.2 Anonymous CVS servers.
For those who always want to stay on the bleeding edge and want
to avoid having to download patch files or full tarballs we
also have an anonymous CVS server. Using CVS you can checkout
the Linux/MIPS source tree with the following commands:
cvs -d :pserver:email@example.com:/cvs login
(Only needed the first time you use anonymous CVS, the password
cvs -d :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvs co <repository>
where you insert linux, libc, or gdb for <repository>.
The other important CVS archive of the Linux community is
vger.rutgers.edu where a lot of code is being collected before
being sent to Linus for distribution. Although vger itself no
longer offers anonymous access, there are mirror sites which do
provide anonymous access. For details how to access them see
http://cvs.on.openprojects.net/. The modules which are of
interest are "linux", "modutils", "pciutils", "netutils".
* The CVS does not contain several R3000 related changes and the
changes for HZ != 100 on the DECstations. It will, on the other
hand, work right out of the box for R4x00 based DECs, besides the
clock problem. The necessary changes are available as seperate
* Ok, what do you need for your machine?
* Baget Series: apply
* R4x00 based DECstations: apply
* R2000/r3000 based DECstations: apply both of the above.
* Build a kernel with the following .config (mind the cpu type as
Linux-MIPS is cpu dependent, a R3000 kernel won't run on a R4x00
