I'm successfully running Debian/GNU Linux on a SGI Indy R4600PC@100Mhz
for over a year now. I'm very happy with the stability of Linux on that
machine. But since the machine is relatively slow (currently 30-35 
shell user continuosly connected), I bought an Indigo2 R4400SC@250Mhz.

I thought of putting a mips64 kernel on the new machine: Got the rpm's
from, converted them with alien to debs and installed 
them on my quad xeon Debian box - checked out the linux source and 
started compiling:

# cvs -d co -r linux_2_4 linux
# cd linux
# make ARCH=mips64 dep
# make ARCH=mips64 clean
# make ARCH=mips64 all

Ok, the latter seems to be related to objdump, right?
mips64-linux-objdump: supported targets: elf32-bigmips elf32-littlemips
elf64-bigmips elf64-littlemips ecoff-bigmips ecoff-littlemips
elf64-little elf64-big elf32-little elf32-big srec symbolsrec tekhex
binary ihex

The package on seems not to be including
elf32-tradbigmips ...

Can somebody help me with this? Btw: same errors with co -r linux_2_4_21

Thank you,mic

Answer 2.  All the data goes into another dimension, and comes out of
/dev/random.            Stephen Montgomery-Smith on freebsd-hackers
