Has anyone had any luck compiling a 64 bit version on the RaQ2. I can
get it to compile but, it locks up during boot up.

That's all I got during bootup, no error messages or anything.
Peter Horton had some experimental code in the kernel at one point to try
this. I managed to get a 2.6.9 (I think, maybe 2.6.10) mips64 kernel to boot
on cobalt, but it was pretty useless. Poor machine was slower than molasses
uphill in winter.
I believe cobalt would run better using the o64 kernel hack than pure n64
kernel (-mabi=64), but cobalt needs some fixups to its spaces.h before an o64
kernel will build on it.
