What is the FreeBSD/MIPS project?

FreeBSD/MIPS is a port of the FreeBSD operating system to platforms based around MIPS processors.

What hardware are you targeting?

At the moment, several MIPS32 development boards and SGI's MIPS64 computers are being targeted. Other MIPS platforms such as common embedded boards and non-exotic computers in a similar configuration are expected to be targeted later on.

What is the current status?

FreeBSD/MIPS is in the early stages of development, see the MIPS wiki page for information about currently ongoing work.

How can I acquire FreeBSD/MIPS?

FreeBSD/MIPS is being developed in FreeBSD's Perforce repository but diffs will be occasionally posted to the mailing list.
