about="""
NetBSD/sparc64 is a NetBSD port to Sun's 64-bit UltraSPARC machines. The first
binary release for sparc64 was [NetBSD 1.5](../../releases/formal-1.5/).
NetBSD/sparc64 supports many systems, including Sbus-based UltraSPARC systems
and PCI-based UltraSPARC systems using UltraSPARC I, II, IIi, and IIe CPU
types.

NetBSD/sparc64 supports both 32-bit and 64-bit kernels. A 32-bit kernel runs
all NetBSD/sparc binaries. A 64-bit kernel runs 64-bit binaries, and has
support for running most 32-bit binaries as well, with the exception of some
low level kernel groveling tools. Additionally, NetBSD/sparc64 is able to run
Solaris 64 and 32 bit binaries with emulation. See
[compat_netbsd32(8)](http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-
cgi?compat_netbsd32+8+NetBSD-5.1+i386),
[compat_solaris(8)](http://netbsd.gw.com/cgi-bin/man-
cgi?compat_solaris+8+NetBSD-5.1+i386) and the pkgsrc package [`emulators/netbs
d32_compat16`](http://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/current/pkgsrc/emulators/netbs
d32_compat16/README.html).

Martin Husemann and Andrey Petrov are the maintainers for NetBSD/sparc64.
