    9: NetBSD/sun3 is the port of NetBSD to the [Sun Microsystems](http://www.sun.com/)
   10: **sun3**, and **sun3x** series of computers, which are based on the Motorola
   11: [68020](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68020)
   12: and [68030](http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=MC68030)
   13: CPUs respectively, with a Sun-designed custom MMU.
   14: Sun sold these computers as both servers and desktop workstations from
   15: the mid to late 1980's. They were superseded by the **sun4** SPARC RISC systems,
   16: which are supported by NetBSD as [[NetBSD/sparc|sparc]].
   17: 
   18: Nathan Williams and Jeremy Cooper are the maintainers of NetBSD/sun3.

   22: 
   23: See [[Supported System Models|sun3_supported_system_models]] page.
   24: 
   25: ### Disk and RAM Requirements
   26: 
   27: * Minimum
   28:     * 4MB RAM, ~80MB disk
   29: * Normal
   30:     * 8MB RAM, 200MB disk
   31: * Normal + X11
   32:     * 16MB RAM, 300MB disk
   33: 
   34: The complete NetBSD sources without objects require 200MB of disk.
   35: 
   36: To run the X Window System or compile the NetBSD system sources
   37: (i.e. development), more RAM and disk are recommended.
   38: Good performance requires 8MB of RAM, or 16MB of RAM
   39: when running the X Window System.
   40: 
   41: ### Supported Hardware

   66: * Miscellaneous:
   67:   * Battery-backed real-time clock.
   68: 
   69: If you have a device that's not listed, it might be compatible with
   70: something else, or we might have simply forgotten it.
   71: If all else fails, maybe you could write a driver!
   72: 
   73: Note: The Sun VME *sc* SCSI card is not yet supported.
