The MIPS Malta is an ATX formfactor evaluation board made by MIPS Technologies. It can have a 4Kc, 4Ke or a 24Kc core. The Malta board has four PCI slots (32-bit, 33 Mhz), Onboard IDE, Onboard Ethernet, USB and Dual UART (16550 compatible). The board is supported in Linux 2.4 and 2.6. It can operate in big endian or little endian mode. This is accomplished by a BIGEND switch on the board.

This is what YAMON shows on bootup:

Linux support

The Malta is fully supported by Linux. Since generally the main CVS tree on linux-mips.org is more geared towards development a separate Malta CVS repository that's geared towards absolute stability on Malta.
