GNU/Linux-libre from Source Code

Introduction

GNU/Linux is an operating system whose goal is to let its user fully control her computing. In order to do this, each part of this operating system has to comply with the four free software essential freedoms :

Lemote Yeeloong

Lemote is a chinese manufacturer of computers using Loongson CPU. Yeeloong series are the laptops sold by Lemote.

GLLFSC

GLLFSC stands for "GNU/Linux-libre from source code". The main goal of those documents is to help the reader build a free as in freedom minimal operating system specifically for her Loongson 2F or 3A-based machine.

Downloads

The GLLFSC documents, as well as their texinfo sources, are available for Loongson 2F and Loongson 3A CPUs in various formats. There are also compiled GLLFSC systems archived for Loongson 3A.

Package Users

Package Users is an uncommon yet interesting way of installing programs, while tracking the files and directories they install on the system. A short way of getting it to work under GLLFSC is presented in Package Users - Short version.

Wireless

In order to have a wireless connection to the internet on a GLLFSC system, I suggest you to read my wireless page.

Xorg

A simple guide to build Xorg on top of GLLFSC is available on my Xorg page.

Going further

After having configured an internet connection and installed Xorg, you will probably want to install a window manager, a graphical web browser and other tools. I have created some recipes to install programs I need. You may also be interested by my Web Browsers page for a list of browsers usable on mips.
