I've read in SGI/howto that this is list for SGI based computers, so
sorry about this quite off-topic letter, but I'm really desperate.
I'm very interested in setting up Linux on SNI RM200. I have RM200 in my
office and I want to see Linux running on it, but my knowledge about this
subject is quite limited. I have no one to learn from. I mean there are
lot of peoples in mailing lists who are willing to help me, but nobody
owns this particular hardware, so the hints I get are quite general. Is
out there someone who is able to provide me some information on Linux on
RMs? Or on someone who does this?
I've hopefully compiled both binutils and egcs for cross-devel, now I'm
ready for kernel. I've tried mips patched 2.2.1 found on
decstation.unix-ag.org but althought it's said to support RMs, I'm unable
to get over rm200-pci part of compilation. If I disable the support for
RM200 PCI, which is nonsense, but just to see what is going on, I get
various linker errors:

I'm fighting with this all for nearly two weeks...
I'm willing to learn to hack the RM specific code and to try to do lot of
things by myself, but right now, I'm not even able to compile the kernel!
Thanks you all for any info
