I’ve been rather busy and thus haven’t had much time for Gentoo work, but today I managed to get some patches together that allow Firefox 3.0.1 to build and run on MIPS.
The ebuild is as yet, unkeyworded, as I wish to do some further testing. I have successfully compiled it on little-endian MIPS, and it mostly seems to work okay. It mostly passes the Acid2 test with some slight errors, but unfortunately, crashes part way through the Acid3 test — this I’ll investigate when I have the time. It also crashes on my blog so your mileage may vary.
No testing has been done on big-endian MIPS at this stage, as my O2 is down for the short term (need to build a new kernel and get X running) so I’d appreciate feedback from users on this matter.
