Brad,

Just out of curiosity, does the processor being used below: Rm9222 have the five state MOESI protocol support?

Thanks
Manish Lachwani

Bryan,

The following are available at ftp.pmc-sierra.com

cross tools: gcc-3.3+ with E9000 core compiler optimizations

userland: demo userland, monta-vista based, native compiler does not have E9000 
optimizations

kernel snapshots: Yosemite/RM92xx SMP capable for 2.4.21, 2.4.26, 2.6.10

doc: pmon and linux readme and board docs.  www.pmon2000.com for online 
pmon2000 command reference.

Of course linux-mips.org for kernel sources and status, cvs-web, other userland 
pointers, all the port bits eventually get there.  The E9000 optimizations were 
committed to gcc.org, available in gcc-3.4.

Datasheets and docs requiring NDA contact support@pmc-sierra.com or your 
sales/FAE contact.

Hi,

I am starting a project using a PMC Sierra RM9222 processor. Could anyone that has used the RM9200 family please recommend a distribution and tool-chain? What has been your experience with Linux on this processor? What secrets and limitations have you found along the way? I am new to MIPS and SMP.

Thanks,
Bryan Althouse
