I now tried to installing the bigendian RedHat7.1 RPMs and I noticed the
/etc/localtime is lacking in glibc-2.2.4-11.2.mips.rpm (but it's contain
in the little endian version).
All the timezone information is lacking under /usr/share/zoneinfo in
glibc-common-2.2.4-11.2 (but it's in the little endian version).
I can't changes the root password, I get the following:
# passwd root
Changing password for user root
New UNIX password:
/usr/lib/cracklib_dict: magic mismatch
