OpenBSD on Loongson
Miod Vallat ported OpenBSD to the chinese MIPS64 remake Loongson 2F, so I wiped the bloated Linux installation from my Yeeloong.
On the Pros side, OpenBSD on Loongson works out of the install, with X11 and everything running.
On the Cons side, there seems to be a serious flaw in fundamental stuff that stops Python from building and introduces bugs in
libgmp. And without Python no mercurial and therefore no happiness yet.
UPDATE: The python build issue is fixed in -current. Mercurial works on the yeeloong!
