Getting the kernel

2011-11-03 Various git repositories have moved from /pub/scm/*.git to /pub/scm/ralf/*.git. You don't have to reclone your tree, just fix .git/config.

Also is slowly returning to full action; the Linux/MIPS repository there is back.

2011-10-29 Nobody really made a big mark in their calendar but 20 years ago, on 1 October 1991 the MIPS R4000 was announced which along with its later refinement, the R4600, was among the two processors supported initially by Linux/MIPS. At first only 32-bit kernel and userland were supported but a 64-bit kernel with full 32-bit binaries compatibility was added in 1999 initially for the Origin 2000 which with 128 processors for a while was the biggest multi-processor system Linux ever had ran on and a little later a 64-bit userland with focus on high end embedded systems was added. 64-bit? An old story.
2011-10-26's entire software will be upgraded next week. This will result in some downtime.
2011-09-07 The recent compromise of a servers has resulted in some of's servers providing DNS service to becoming unavailable. A temporary solution is now in place.
2011-08-20 For those who still download kernel tarballs all files below /pub/linux/mips/kernel have been converted to xz format. Xz compression typically saves about one third over gzip.
2011-08-20 Due to wiki spam in the last time email address verification has been activated. This also affects owners of existing accounts.
2010-11-26 Our friends over at MIPS Technologies, Inc. have a few news items that may be of interest to Linux/MIPS users:
2010-11-26 In the past this place on the wiki's frontpage has mostly been used for site news which was a bit of a waste. So if you think you have any interesting items, please post them to Ralf for consideration. MIPS Technologies, Inc. makes the beginning.
