This is the Simple MIPS/Linux 0.2a 'pre-Alpha and we're not joking'
release. You can obtain the kernel from
ftp://ftp.foobazco.org/pub/people/wesolows/mips-linux/kernels/vmlinux-24test2
and the filesystem from .../mips-linux/testing/core-0.2a.tar.gz. This
is a big-endian filesystem and the kernel is for SGI IP22.

This is a developer release, mainly to help shake out bugs in the
toolchain and glibc. This release will not run properly on kernel
2.2. Mandatory release notes are at
.../mips-linux/testing/README.core-02a. There is still a good deal of
functionality missing, including the networking utilities, ext2fs
tools, and a c++ compiler. This release includes the libemptysymbol
hack to work around the "undefined symbol: " problem until it's fixed.

Bug reports accepted but in general nothing is patched so you may also
wish to send reports to the appropriate maintainers.

Happy hacking!
