Contents

Fedora MIPS

This is the starting page for the Fedora port to the MIPS architecture.


Goals and Objectives

The primary goal of this project is to provide support for MIPS as a secondary architecture in Fedora.

Just like the ARM port, our secondary goal is to enable derivative distributions based on the Fedora package collection and repository that are more suitably optimized for embedded and mobile use-cases.


CPU and Architecture Target

Currently we have chosen to support Loongson 2F, but in time we will also support other MIPS-compatible processors.

Information of Loongson CPU can be found on http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Loongson, http://www.loongson.cn/ and forum http://bbs.lemote.com/.
