Distro of the Linux-based GNU system ported to MIPS

Item posted by Ludovic Courtès <civodul> on Mon Oct 28 21:07:22 2013.

The Guix-based distro has been ported to MIPS64, specifically to the Loongson processors notably found in the free-software-friendly Yeeloong laptops.

Technically, "porting" here means that the "bootstrap binaries" were cross-compiled to +mips64el-linux-gnu+, and then used as an input to the distro's bootstrapping process---a purely functional, and trackable, process.

Thanks to Mark and Nikita for their tireless work to make this happen!
