NetBSD/x68k 1.2 was the first formal release of
Masaru Oki was the maintainer of NetBSD/x68k at the time of the 1.2 release.
NetBSD/x68k 1.2 runs on SHARP X680x0 series personal workstation, with
TRUE 68030 processors (NOT 68EC030) and math coprocessors.
It needs the Paging Memory Management Unit (PMMU).
In addition, some accelerators are supported:
The minimal configuration requires 4M of RAM and about 65M of
disk space. To install the entire system requires much more disk space,
and to run X or compile the system, more RAM is recommended.
- Xellent30 series (with 68030)
- 040turbo (68040)
- JUPITER-X (68040)
Supported devices by NetBSD/x68k 1.2 include:
- Sharp genuine MB89352 SCSI host adapters
- Built-in floppy drives
- Built-in frame buffer (both of the text and graphics screen)
- Built-in Z8530 serial
- Built-in parallel (Centronics printer interface)
- The standard keyboard
- The mouse / trackball
- NS16550 UARTs
- Neptune-X DS8390 Ethernet
Hardware that we do NOT currently support, but get many questions about:
- Mach-2 SCSI host adapters
- 68060 processor supports
We are planning future support for many of these devices.
If you're interested in NetBSD/x68k you should use a
more recent version.
