Question:I would like to be able to work from home, is there any way?
Answer: Yes, it is possible, there are two main ways you can achieve this:
sshinto one of the
asystmachines and do you work from there. You can then use Sulima or the actual hardware just as if you were in
asyst. The main problem you run into here is how to reboot the machine. You can either use the kernel debugger to reboot the machine, or otherwise rely on someone physically in the lab to reset it for you.
Question: When I try to boot, I get the following message:
mips12> boot sos.danielp 192.168.1.1:sos.danielp: No such file or directory
Answer: This message is misleading. It may also mean that you have not set the global read/execute permissions on the file. For example:
chmod a+rx /tftpboot/sos.danielp
Question: Where can I get cross compilers for MIPS64?
Answer: There are .debs, RPMs and binary tarballs available here. These are only visible from the CSE network. While we don't strictly support them, we are willing try and assist you setup your own environment.
If you'd like to compile your own cross-compiler there are some instructions in the disy home directory, available at /home/disy/crossdev/README.build-gcc3.2.2. Make sure you get the patch (available in the same directory), and take note of the last line in the README file.
