In cooperation with Imagination Technologies, the first Fedora image for the MIPS architecture is now out in testing.

This initial Fedora 22 MIPS release supports the low-cost MIPS Creator CI20 development board that packs in two 1.2GHz MIPS32 processor cores and PowerVR graphics.

While still under development, Fedora for MIPS 64-bit is also being worked on with a port targeting the Cavium OCTEON III processors.

Those wanting to try out Fedora 22 MIPS in its current test version can find the new release media here while more information is available via this Imagination Tech blog post.

While I do have a MIPS Creator CI20 for benchmarking, the current board remains borked as outlined in that article. Since that article nearly one month ago, I've been trying to RMA the board back to Imagination Technologies, but their sales support representatives haven't responded since 12 June, even after additional follow-ups... At least though there's others at the company working to get the issue resolved, so hopefully within a few weeks I'll be back to benchmarking with the CI20.
