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.
Fedora MIPS Repositories
Test Release: Fedora 11 (Obsoleted)
This is a test release for MIPS based on Fedora 11
- A set of binary RPMs are available from lazyfai and mips101.
- A prebuilt root filesystem to help you get started quickly. (Default root password is "redhat")
Test Release: Fedora 12
This is a new release for MIPS N32 ABI based on Fedora 12 GA
- Not yet a completed release, just enough for GNOME desktop and development tools
- Modified Source RPMs are here:
- Tarball for root filesystem and QEMU-mips64el runnable image can be found here:
(Default root password is "fedora")
How to get in touch?
- The Fedora-MIPS mailing list is available for both user and developer discussions.
- We have an IRC channel #fedora-mips on Freenode: irc://irc.freenode.net/#fedora-mips
- Frequent updates about the effort are available at the Fedora-MIPS blog
