 For anyone interested: I've made a few MIPS/Linux-related RPM packages
available.  Included, there are mipsel-linux native development tools,
libraries, as well as certain programs sort-of needed for a machine to run
interactively.  There are cross-development tools for the i386-linux host
and the mipsel-linux target.  Finally, there are host-independent
cross-development libraries for the mipsel-linux target.

 The binary packages expect glibc-2.1.3 or newer for the i386-linux system
and glibc-2.1.90 or newer for the mipsel-linux system to be available. 
Source packages generally expect glibc-2.1 or newer but were only built
using the versions mentioned above.  Exact requirements are provided in
every package separately.  Rpm-3.0 or newer is required to rebuild any of

 Also available are rpm rc and macro files which I use for both native
builds and cross-compilations -- rpm doesn't support cross-compilations
directly (i.e. via a command line option) but might be configured
appropriately via macros provided spec files can handle them.

 All the above stuff is available at ''. 
The server operates continuously, but during off-peak hours foreign hosts
receive greater bandwidth.  Off-peak hours are since 10pm till 8am, local
time, which is now CEST, i.e. UTC+0200.  During this time, the bottleneck
link has bandwidth of 10Mb/s. 

 The whole repository consumes about 170MB at the moment but the size may
vary as updates are uploaded.  If you find a package is missing (e.g.
there is a binary package, but no corresponding source one) please let me
know.  Any comments, updates and fixes are welcomed as well.
