Introduction

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.

Components

32bit MIPS (endian?)
  • MIPS Creator CI20
  • Qi-Hardware Ben Nanonote
  • Free software boot
  • GPU not working with free software[4]
  • The display controller is most probably working
  • Loongson 2E
  • Loongson 2F
  • MIPS64el
  • Lemote 8101B / 8089B / 8089D laptops
  • Fuloong 2E / 2F small desktop computers
  • Fuloong FL6004 / FL6014 / FL6005 / FL6015 mini-pc

Summary

  • All the devices officially supported by LibreCMC are 32bit as of October 2021

TODO:

  • 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  • Check if there are powerful MIPS computers originally made for other uses cases (network infrastructure, other?)
