FreeBSD/MIPS port

The current FreeBSD/mips TODO List contains items that we'd like to see, or items that people are currently working on.

MIPS32

There are a variety of MIPS32 platforms supported.

The most popular / tested is the Atheros MIPS SoCs.

The CPU families in question (in 32-bit mode):

Specific boards (non-exhaustive):

May other devices have an AR71xx, AR724x, AR91xx, AR933x, AR934x in them. Any of those boards will work - provided enough RAM (32MB) and flash (8MB) is available to run FreeBSD-HEAD.

Octeon-based

See FreeBSD/mips/Octeon article.

NetLogic

Emulation

The 32-bit and 64-bit MIPS platforms (both big and little endian) can be tested under various emulator environments. Please see FreeBSD/MipsEmulation for further information.

Building FreeBSD/MIPS

A very simple (and perhaps out of date) overview can be found here - FreeBSD/BuildingMIPS .

AdrianChadd has built a set of build scripts to build MIPS/ARM access point images: https://code.google.com/p/freebsd-wifi-build/ .
