recently Matthias Klose updated binutils and gcc-4.4 on my request so
that fix-loongson2f-nop is used by default. As the current unstable
package of gcc-4.4 is already build with that enabled, I could now
successfully build binutils (and other packages) in an default debian
chroot. This is a huge progress!
However, there are still two issues I'd like to get resolved (speaking
about a loongson 2f minipc):
1. RTC: Even with the most recent kernels from
http://www.linux-mips.org/git?p=linux.git the RTC still cannot be
accessed within Linux. I get the error that there is no /dev/rtc
(which is true). Any hints how to fix that? (I have all kernel options
2. PMON: I have serial access to pmon. However, I don't see the menu
on the console (but I can input characters, so if I press "c" and then
"setvga 0", things work for me).
I have both nokbd and novga set to 1, but this doesn#t make any
difference. Any hints for me?
