First question, are all the LS mipsel or have you mips (different endianess) boxes too???

I have few problems cause ocaml compiler doesn't work( I think, I attempts have failes) on mipsel architecture.
At the moment I am able to produce only bytecode cores. Which is not so helpful.

Has anyone here succesfully compiled ocamlopt (native compiler) and mldonkey?
This is particular for @mindbender
have you compiled only mlnet.byte code ore have you succesfully produced mlnet.static?

i currently do not have an LS2.

and no, only mipsel-versions exist.
actually i do not know any mips-based NAS. mips is mostly used for routers i think.

but the available binaries from my old binary-page (from the time before this wiki) here let me suggest that it was possible to compile static versions.

and yes, turkish used the native compiler on the LS2.

http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0025690/LS2_mips.html

i actually never had an LS2 for testing. i still hope to get one for me via ebay.

what exactly is the problem you have with ocaml?
i had problems in the past that the automatic compiling of ocaml while compiling mldonkey did work, but the ocaml stuff wasn`t found by the script when trying to compile mldonkey.

i always had to compile ocaml manually before compiling mldonkey. thats for the ppc boxes though...maybe this is useless info for the mipsel-LS2

i have successfully compiled mldonkey using an apt-get installed ocaml on my ppc HG box running Freelink, i.e. debian.

@flavoie
Thanks for feedback,
the problem is mipsel related... I was able to compile ppc native cores too.
The compilation is possible for me too on mipsel but I cannot obtain pure native mipsel binaries (mlnet) cause I lack ocamlopt compiler.
@mindbender
I have succesfully installed and compiled + I have self compiled 3.09.3 ocaml, but all the version doesn't provide native compiler ocamlopt.
I was able to compile bytecode (it is like Java code, a bit slower).
Further searches point the fact that mipsel native support could be removed in the last ocaml's versions for mipsel :cry:
I have tried to provide native code cause it performs a bit better than bytecode.

I'll try with very old ocaml releases or I'll release bytecode cores. :|

I'm sorry but the turkish's archive doesn't contain native cores.
The archive contains a mlnet.byte which is not compiled in native machine code.
I suppose turkish has encountered the same problem.

native compiler -> create a binary optimized and running directly assembly code (the final name is usually mlnet or mlnet.static)
bytecode compiler -> create a bytecode (like a java program) which has to be interpreted by the ocaml interpreter (final name mlnet.byte ocaml interpreter is integrated in the mlnet.byte).

i c. it might be a problem i was not aware of. but it is still working. so it is better to have this bytecode variants than no variants at all.
