I talked to Redhatter on #gentoo-mips about Godson
Wikipedia article about Godson.
(zhllg) http://www.lemote.com/lmpc.wmv Linux running on China's Godson CPU
(zhllg) Godson's instruction set is compatible with MIPS
* Redhatter points out that Microsoft don't produce a Linux version of Windows Media Player
(redhatter) s/don't/doesn't/ rather
(zhllg) however, we can play it with mplayer if win32codec USE flag is enabled.
(zhllg) btw, i just find that link somewhere else, i am not the publisher
(redhatter) we can play it with mplayer on x86 with win32codecs USE flag :-)
(redhatter) Those Godson machines _do_ look nice though... pity they're damn hard to get hold of outside of China.
(zhllg) i have a dream that one day Gentoo could have Godson support, haha
(redhatter) Indeed... although that won't happen unless one of us can get hold of one.
(zhllg) Maybe you have known this, http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Yellow_Sheep_River_develops_%E2%82%AC123_Linux_based_computer
(redhatter) Indeed, those are the ones I have heard about.
(redhatter) If I see someone selling them in Brisbane, I'll certainly look into buying one. :-)
