This wiki page is there to understand if it makes sense to revive the Parabola mips64el port, find strategies to support MIPS in self hosted FSDG compliant distributions and/or look if it makes sense to spend time supporting MIPS hardware.

  • Check the devices that are not officially supported by LibreCMC
  • Check if the more recent Lemote devices / Loongson are interesting
  • Check if more recent WiFi access points have 64bit MIPS
  • Check if there are interesting MIPS SOCs for single board computers
  • Check if there are powerful MIPS computers originally made for other uses cases (network infrastructure, other?)
