6-May-97 David Monro releases version 1.01 of bfsd. bfsd is a daemon that
can be used to boot the machines built by Mips Computersystems,
Inc. over a network.
- Release of Linux/MIPS kernel 2.0.4. This release features a partially
rewritten signal handler that should match POSIX.1.
- First release of shared libraries for Linux/MIPS based on GNU libc
- Release of Linux/MIPS kernel 2.0.1
- David S. Miller starts working on SGI support at Silicon Graphics.
- Release 1.3.98 of the kernel adds support for the SNI RM200 PCI.
- Linux/MIPS works as NFS server.
- The IDE CD driver now also supports Linux/MIPS.
- Added reference to literature available online form SGI to the FAQ
- New chapter in the FAQ about the ARC standard.
- Release of Milo 0.26 and a kernel patch to use it. This release passes
parameters in a completly different way to the kernel that makes porting
Linux/MIPS to another architecture a lot easier.
- Release of crosscoompiler binaries based on the FSF's Binutils version
2.6. This release brings lots of new features and many bugfixes.
- Warner Losh started working on a port of Linux/MIPS to Deskstation rPC44.
- Linux/MIPS kernel updated to version 1.3.58.
- Patch gcc-2.7.2-1.diffs.gz has been released.
- Patch binutils-2.6-1.diffs.gz has been released. This patch contains
lots of bugfixes. The Linux kernel Makefiles will automatically detect
whether Binutils 2.6 or an older version is installed and use the new
features resulting in a much smaller kernel executable which is especially useful for bootdisks.
- Release of a complete root and /usr filesystem that can be NFS mounted
to use a Linux/MIPS system as a diskless client. A native development
kit based on GCC 2.7.2, Binutils 2.6 and GNU libc snapshot 951218 is
included as well as many of the standard utilities.
- Linux/MIPS boots of a NFS filesystem as a diskless client. This also
means that the rest of Linux/MIPS networking is operational now.
- Soft-N-Hard GMBH and SNI sign a contract. SNI will loan a RM200
to Soft-N-Hard for porting Linux/MIPS to it.
- The Linux/MIPS FTP archive and mailing list have been moved
(There are many others news I currently have no time to document)
- New crossdevelopment tools released. GCC-2.6.3-2 and Binutils-2.5.2-2
for Linux/i386 need kernels with ELF support and libc-5.0.9 installed.
The new crossdev tools are required for Linux/MIPS kernels above 1.2.9.
A.out versions of the crossdev tools will follow soon.
- Patches 2.6.3-2 for Linux/MIPS GCC released. This compiler better
complies to the MIPS standard of symbol names.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.9 released.
- Milo 0.24 released. This version features improved machine type
detection and many cleanup's and bugfixes.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.8 released. This version features many bugfixes
and has the Magnum 4000 specific changes from Linux-1.2.7 integrated.
- Milo 0.23 released. This version features built-in support for
Olivetti M700 machines. Milo is now split into two binaries: A simple
bootloader and a standalone debugger/monitor with boot capability.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.7 on Olivetti M700 mounts root file system.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.7 on Mips Magnum 4000 mounts root file system.
- Added NEC RiscStation and RiscServer to target list.
- Milo 0.22 successfully tested on NEC RiscStation and RiscServer.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.7 released. This release features initial Magnum
4000 support and tons of bugfixes.
- Milo 0.22 released. This version contains some cleanup's and several
- Milo 0.21 released. This version features more built-in
debugger/monitor commands and contains some important bug fixes.
- Milo 0.20 released. This version features a built-in debugger/monitor
and a lot of new library functions.
- Port to Olivetti M700 started.
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.6 released.
- Milo 0.19 released. This version includes some minor fixes plus
initial support for kernels in ELF format.
- Milo 0.18b released.
This version includes support for Mips Magnum 4000. Port to Mips Magnum 4000
- Linux/MIPS kernel 1.2.2 released. Kernel now mounts its root file system.
- Milo 0.18 released.
This version includes support for Deskstation rPC44 systems.
- Port to DeskStation rPC44 started.
