My RedHat 7.1 release on oss.sgi.com has the complete cross toolchain:
My mini-port of RedHat 7.1 is at
you should be able to put a small RedHat 7.1 on the mips/mipsel box and
compile the rest of RedHat 7.1 yourselves.
Here are something you should know:
1. The cross compiler hosted on RedHat 7.1/ia32 is provided as a
toolchain rpm. The binary rpms for the mips and mipsel cross compilers
2. You have to find a way to put those rpms on your machine. I use
network boot and NFS root to do it.
