Re: Looking for MIPS32 and ARM Linux systems to run GCC testsuite on

Anyone know where I can pick up an old MIPS32-based
or ARM-based system of any sort running Linux for cheap or free?

I don't know if it can help you, but I got a playstation2 linux system at home. It's got 32MB RAM, ethernet and already linux 2.2.1 (or 2.2.21 if I use the Rhino kernel) loaded & running.

The CPU in the PS2 is sort of a strange one (128bit registers build on a
64bit core or something like that), but I think it can run all the MIPS1 ISA
so it might do ok for your tests.

It might do, and the PS2 is probably a target worth supporting, anyway. Perhaps you could give my toolchain build-and-test script a whirl? The script runs on a beefy PC with lots of disk and RAM, and uses rsh and rcp to run tests on the target. Alternately, maybe you could hook it up to the net so I can run a few preliminary tests remotely via ssh?
