Loongson 2F N32 stage3 is now available on gentoo mirrors

It is under experimental/mips/stages/loongson/. Like:

I have already included kernel modules in the stage3. You can find the corresponding kernel here:

/home/user # gconftool-2 -s /apps/osso/xterm/keys -t list --list-type=string "[Tab,Escape,asciitilde,grave,bar,greater,less]"Then restart your xterm, you will see the bottom bar looks like the one showing in the following picture:
