Subject: [gentoo-mips] [WANTED]: Cobalt-Mips Dev
Date: Fri, 05 Nov 2004 03:51:35
1 Wanted for the Gentoo/MIPS Team:
2 An active person interested in assisting the Gentoo/MIPS Team in the following
3 areas: cobalt-mips
5 Individual will be responsible for maintaining cobalt-mips support (denoted as
6 a sub-project of the Gentoo/MIPS project). Duties will include making sure
7 various system packages work with the hardware (which is little endian,
8 different from the big endian SGI systems), maintaining the colo bootloader
9 and associated boot scripts, working with the documentation lead for
10 cobalt-specific documentation, and working with the general Gentoo/MIPS Team
11 on package stability and other various issues.
13 Individual will, at minimum, need to own and operate a Cobalt Microserver
14 system, preferably a RaQ2 (any variety), or Qube2, or RaQ1. Qube1 systems are
15 not known to work very well with linux (and require special modifications to
16 enable the serial port). Ownership of SGI systems capable of running linux is
17 a plus. Individual will also need to run Gentoo on said Cobalt system(s).
19 All interested parties please email mips@g.o listing what Cobalt
20 machine they own/operate (as well as any additional machines), a summary
21 stating your skills and abilities, and how those can be applied to this area
22 of the Gentoo/MIPS team.
