System Summary

Reinstalling Software

Pre-built images are available at https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/loongson/install/ and https://mirrors.ustc.edu.cn/loongson/install/

1. Download an image for the board, e. g.: wget https://mirrors.tuna.tsinghua.edu.cn/loongson/install/loongson64_debian10_en_20200525.zip

2. Mount USB media with FAT32 filesystem (readme.utf8.txt says that the size of USB media should not be more than 2GB, but 32GB worked for me without resizing the primary partition), e. g.: sudo mount -o uid=1000 /dev/sdb1 /mnt/disk

3. Unzip the downloaded image to the root directory of your USB media, e. g.: unzip loongson64_debian10_en_20200525.zip -d /mnt/disk

4. Sync and unmount your USB media, e. g.: sync; sudo umount /mnt/disk

5. Insert the USB media into your Loongson board and power the board on

6. Select 'usb install loongson-2k' in board's bootload menu

7. The image should be detected and you will be prompted to proceed twice (the first time is for approving the detected image, and the second time to approve erasing the data on your board's disk)

8. Wait for about 5 minutes and reboot the board after getting "please reboot" message
