We (Cavium, Inc.) are interested in working with one or more people to create a MIPS 64 port of Debian. As part of the effort, we can make available one or more fairly high end machines. These would be cn5650 (12 CPU SMP) based, or similar, with 4GB of RAM and a large SATA disk.
These are running unmodified Linux 3.2 kernels with mips/Squeeze installed and at first would be big-endian only.
We can also run little-endian in the future, but we are interested in attacking the big-endian problem first.
Let me know if anyone is interested.
For little-endian n32 or n64 work, my company would be willing to provide loongson2f machines for this project, and probably loongson3a machines when they are available later this year. We also have a SiCortex SC072 we could provide, and could likely also get Debian time on a much, much larger SiCortex system. We could either (preferred) get these to a Debian project member, or host them with remote KVM/USB/Serial.
