hi
is there any updated stage3 for mips1, mips2, mips3, mips32, bigendian ?
i can see only 2007 stage3, too old for the modern portage

regards

There are current stages in the experimental directory on the mirrors.

I haven't created mips32 stages yet, or a big endian mips1 stage. There's no use in mips2 stages, since Linux doesn't run on any strictly-MIPS II system.

Not sure why you didn't ask me this when you emailed me the other day.

well, i am used to use
- mips-1 for my mips simulator, R3000 (bigendian, littleendian)
- mips-3 for sgi R5000, R10000, R12000 (bigendian only)
- mips-32 for atheros (bigendian, littleendian)

so, MIPS III, MIPS32, are for real hw MIPS machines

These are mips4, not mips3. For R10k/R12k, you should use the mips4_r10k stage.

this is the reason why i wrote "i am used to use": I am sharing stage4 with indy (R5K) and octane (R10/R12K)

Indy (and O2/R5K) is not able to compile in short and reasonable time
it is a very slow machine, and it has not enought ram (max is 256Mb)
while octane is fast enouth, and it can have up to 2Gbyte ram

I know I could have a mips4 stage4 on octane,
and attaching the (external) indy scsi hard drive as external hard drive on octane, chrooting into, and use the octane to emerge thing in the indy stage3
well I did, as I did sshfs + fuse, or NFS ....
but i HATE doing things twice the time, expecially if Octane eats a lot of electrical power (it is a 400Watt machine), which i pay not for cheap =P

So as the fact I have not appreciated any significative speedup with mips4 stages, I prefer this way.

Anyway, as I told you, know i need mips32 be for the routerstation/pro (atheros)
I will try your experimental stage3 as soon as I fix the kernel issues around pci
I really need gentoo to emerge all I need to have a pretty wifi router with fuse and sshfs, vpn, and such a stuff

- my octane2 is stopped to 2009 (emerging from a 2007 stage3/mips3), when i did the last emerge things
it has kernel 2.6.19 (SMP, 2xR12K), and a pretty stage4 profiled as "X11 workstation"
- my indy is stopped to 2009, sharing the X11-less profile of my octane2 stage4: profiled as text console workstation with a 2.6.19 kernel, too




also I am supporting RB532AB (64Mbyte instead of 32Mbyte of the earlier version) with a pretty mips32 little endian stage. I have no other little endian mips here (which one could really do things ??? cobalt ???), so this poor 64Mb mips machins is emerging things by herself. I have a 2010 stage3 running, with a very reduced stage4, basically text console apps, and networking tools
(5 weeks of no stop work, 24h/24h, day after day, to emerge the whole =P )
