I see that we have kernel for mips malta , but I'd like build a kernel
for mips 32
# cat /proc/cpuinfo
system type : Realtek Venus
processor : 0
cpu model : MIPS 4KEc V6.4
I am studying (as hobby) put a newer kernel on a multimedia player
So can we build a kernel for a mispel ?
I have others questions like why a kernel 2.6.26 ? and not newer ?
Basically because some hardware support may need kernels newer.
Thanks in advance,

I pointed my yum to http://lazyfai.dyndns.org/Fedora-13-RPMS-MIPS/ .
And when I tried to install Gnome, it complains there is no libebook and
zenity, which is required by control-center and metacity. Do I miss
Fedora MIPS doesn't seem to have cross toolchain packages like the
Fedora Arm support has (thanks to Lennert Buytenhek's work). It's a bit
old though since it was done as a one-off a couple of years ago on gcc
That's a shame because although Fedora mainly has a native build
approach, in fact for bootloaders and kernel a cross toolchain is very
I spent some time uplevelling the cross packages in Fedora ARM over the
weekend and was able to get them working for ARM kernel-building duties
with rawhide 4.5 gcc version.
Now I would like to see how difficult it would be to retarget those
packages to be compatible with Fedora MIPS stuff.
Attempting to recook binutils-126.96.36.199.7-5.fc14.src.rpm for
mipsel-softfloat-linu-gnueabi, which works OK with armv5tel, creates an
ld that fails its self-tests on MIPS ELF stuff.

What is the toolchain basis for the MIPS packages that have been created
so far, and the triplet used?
