    9: NetBSD/amiga is the port of NetBSD to the Amiga line of personal computers by
   10: Commodore and [Amiga International](http://www.amiga.com/) and to the DraCo by
   11: [MacroSystem GmbH](http://www.macrosystem.de/).
   12: 
   13: Development activity on NetBSD/amiga continues at a speed dependent on people's
   14: spare time. Currently, NetBSD/amiga runs on any Amiga <sup>[\[1\]](#ftn.gvp-accelerator)</sup><a name="gvp-accelerator"></a>
   15: that has a Motorola 68020 or better CPU with some form of MMU, and on 68060
   16: DraCos. For 68020 and 68030 systems, a FPU is recommended but not required.
   17: 68LC040, 68040V and 68LC060 systems don't work correctly at the moment.
   18: 
   19: Due to the MMU requirement, it will not run on A500, A600, A1000, A1200, A2000,
   20: A4000/EC030, CDTV or CD32 out of the box. You must install a CPU board on them
   21: to run NetBSD.
   22: 
   23: The minimum RAM requirement is about 24 MB FASTMEM, the minimum hard disk space
   24: needed is about 250 MB, depending on how much system components you install.
   25: Check the install document for more details.
