We are happy to announce the availability of two Loongson machines with a recent LoongArch 3A5000 processor running at 2.5 GHz: gcc400 and gcc401.

As a starting point, the machines run a custom Cross-LinuxFromScratch (CLFS) build and the software environment is somewhat experimental. Feel free to report any issues or missing software, either directly or through the cfarm-users mailing list to discuss it with other users. As a known issue, some websites such as Github may not be reachable due to local network restrictions.

As usual, make sure to use the correct SSH port, as listed in the list of machines. We also provide a ready-to-use SSH client configuration, just click Show ssh config at the top of the page.

The machines are hosted in Beijing, China by Loongson Technology, thanks to them!
