HDHLAN MIPSel (LS2)

  • IDT 79RC32434-400BC Integrated Communications Processor, containing
    • 32-bit @ 400MHz MIPSel CPU core (el -> le -> little endian) with MIPS32 instructions set architecture. Based on the MIPS 4Kc core.
    • 10/100Mb Ethernet channel {:MII:Media Independent Interface}/{:RMII:Reduced Media Independent Interface} interface controller
    • Serial UART, 16550 compatible
    • DDR memory controller, can handle up to 256MB
    • general purpose memory controller
    • PCI controller
    • DMA controller
    • I'^2^'C bus
    • general purpose I/O connectors
    • JTAG interface (hardware-supported debugging)
    • Watchdog timer
    • No FPU (floating point is done via software emulation)
  • 8201CP 'PHYceiver' - Physical Ethernet tranceiver, connected to the ICP's Ethernet channel
  • RAM - 64MB Micron MT 46V32MI6-SBC SDRAM
  • Flash ROM - 4MB Macronix MX29LV320T.
  • IT8211 PCI IDE disk controller. The stock kernel driver reports an IT8212 (an IDE RAID 0/1/0+1 controller). However, there is indeed only a IT8211 on the board.
  • USB - 2 type A connectors (rear - /dev/usb/lp0, front - /dev/usb/lp1) -

Overview

This page lists articles about getting various bits of software working on the MIPSel Linkstation2. Although geared primarily towards the MIPSel variant with some modification most of these things could be accomplished on a PPC linkstation.

Getting Started

About the only viable starting point with the LS2 is to install Projects/OpenLink by following the instructions on Articles/GeneralFirmwareFlash.

Almost everything here will also require you to have installed the Projects/DevelopmentTools as well.

Some ready compiled utilities are available here Projects/MIPSel

For those who desire it there is also the Articles/DebianMIPSConversion.

Media/Web Servers

  1. Articles/MIPSelSlimServer - How to install SlimServer.
  2. Articles/MIPSelGMediaServer - Install GMediaServer for full UPnP support.
  3. Articles/MIPSelApache - Install Apache w/ PHP and MySQL support.
  4. Articles/MIPSelApache2 - Install Apache2 with mod_musicindex.
  5. Articles/MIPSelGD - Install GD graphics library
  6. Articles/GeneralExtendingPCast - Work performed on the MIPSel to extend LinkTheatre menus (may be applicable to other variants, so placed in the General article area).
