Hi Stayvoid,

Packages at are built
for Ubuntu and as such only support i386 and x86_64 architectures.

As far as I understand your message, you want to install GNU IceCat
on MIPS (Lemote machine with a Loongson processor).

I built GNU IceCat 3.6.16 for MIPS some time ago with the help of the
files I found under and the
doc on  You can
download the .deb package under

If you want to build the package from source, you have to comment out
the following line in the file named ".mozconfig":

    ac_add_options --enable-optimize="-pipe -O3"

for more details).

If you want to build a more recent version, you may be interested by
the content of there are
several patches named firefox-X.0-loongson-1.patch that you may apply
on GNU IceCat sources. Those patches, AFAICS, replace Firefox
Javascript engine with Webkit one. I have not tried those patches
