hi
i am toying with mips1 and mipd32 machine (big endian), i am using an old 2008 stage3 which i have updated in order to support EABI2.
THe new portages are EABI4, so i am pretty blocked with modern things, in few words i can't emerge --sync because my emerge stuff will not be able to understand the new portage.

I think i need an updated stage3. Well, in the experimental branch i see "multi library" stages, but the are missing of mips1 and mips32 target.
Anyone working with such a stuff ?

let me know =)

I somehow never got around to building big endian mips1 or mips32 stages.

What kind of hardware are you interested in running Gentoo on?

I have made mips32 be stage 3 with libc (without -msoft-float) from debian mips squeeze and mips32 be stage 3 with uclibc (-msoft-float) from buildroot.
You can use qemu-mips-static, binfmt-support pkgs and chroot running mips stage 3 on x86.

could you tell me more about "binfmt-support pkgs" ? It sounds very interesting =)

i have an octane2 running both irix and gentoo linux, on gentoo linux i could use catalyst to emerge gentoo stages, but i could also consider cross-compiling or using a native compiler insider an emulator.

Actually this stage3 has been native compiled by Octane2 in 2 days

It is now ready, i have scp it from my octane2 to my laptop in order to put it into an usb hard drive, i have than attached the usb harddrive to my router and is now running it with success.

mips1-be-glibc-2012 on my router, that's great !

I think it's a brilliant method. I use debian wheezy and chrooting into mips gentoo.

http://wiki.debian.org/QemuUserEmulation
http://www.emdebian.org/debian/pool/main/g/glibc/
There's nothing to speak about!!!!! I'm compiling mips be stage-3 2012 in 7-8 hours. gcc-4.5.3 - 3-4 hours.
