36The exact requirements will largely depend on what you intend to use the
37machine for and how you wish to go about installing Gentoo. The following
38table should give you a rough idea.

66<title>A Note about serial consoles</title>
67<body>
68
69<p>
70If you lack an appropriate Framebuffer, you will be required to use serial
71console. Serial console programs for linux include <c>minicom</c> and
72<c>xc</c>, and for Windows, <c>HyperTerminal</c> and <c>Tera Term Pro</c>. If
73you are running Windows, and intend to use HyperTerminal, it is advised that
74you seek out an updated client from the program's website instead of the one
75installed by default. An upgraded client provides much better serial support
76than the default one installed by Windows.

86As an aid to the project, a <uri
87link="http://stuartl.longlandclan.hopto.org/gentoo/mips/">hardware support
88database</uri> has been set up. This support database is intended to provide a
89quick and easy way to determine how well certain configurations are supported.
90The system also allows people to contribute their comments and kernel configs.

217 The O2 RM7000 Processor support is limited in Linux currently, as it
218 requires a fairly recent kernel version (&gt;2.6.7), and has several
219 notable issues. The first issue is a problem with SCSI at the moment,
220 making the internal disks unusable at the current time. The Level 3
221 (Tertiary) Cache is also disabled due to there being no support for
222 this cache in the linux kernel.
223 </li>
224 <li>
225 Please be aware that this note only applies to the official SGI RM7000
226 running at 350MHz, not the 600MHz RM7000 that can be assembled using an
227 RM5200 board. These "modded" CPU modules for O2 systems are not
228 supported/tested, although, in theory, they should be functional, but
229 may suffer from the same problems listed above.

488(1) Work has begun on porting the ImpactSR to the Indigo2 Impact (IP28)
489workstation. At the moment, it's early days, and the driver is not functional
490yet, but this may change in the coming months.<br/>
491Likewise with Extreme graphics... a few people were starting to look into
492writing drivers for this chipset. Nothing has been released yet, but we may
493see something in the not too distant future.<br/>
494We will update this page if such a driver is released.
