How can I find out if I compiled my kernel with the compatibility code?
I don't mean to be critical, but read the code. If you look in the
'arch/mips/config.in' file you will find:
if [ "$CONFIG_CPU_LITTLE_ENDIAN" = "n" ]; then
bool 'Include IRIX binary compatibility' CONFIG_BINFMT_IRIX
bool 'Include forward keyboard' CONFIG_FORWARD_KEYBOARD
at around line #522. You have to be a big endian machine since IRIX is
itself a big endian operating system. This option is under the menu
