Running Fedora MIPS

There is an ongoing effort to revive Fedora for MIPS. In order to get a glimpse of this work in QEMU, do the following:

  • Download the qcow mipsel64el image here
  • Download the kernel here

Run your MIPS qemu instance as follows (note that I use a bridge called vnet0 on my host):

qemu-system-mips64el -M malta \
    -cpu 5KEc \
    -m 2048 \
    -kernel vmlinux-3.19.3.mtoman.20150408 \
    -drive file=fedora-22-mips64el-20150601.qcow2 \
    -netdev bridge,id=hub0port0,br=vnet0 -device e1000-82545em,netdev=hub0port0,id=foo \
    -append "ro root=/dev/sda1 console=ttyS0 mem=256m@0x0 mem=1792m@0x90000000" \
    -serial stdio \
    -nographic \
    -monitor pty
