NetBSD/prep Supported Hardware

The minimal configuration for a NetBSD/prep system requires 16M of RAM and about 100M of disk space. For a full installation (including source and X11), at least 32M of RAM and 200M of disk space are recommended.

Supported system models include:

  • IBM 6015 (40P)
  • IBM 6040 (ThinkPad 820)
  • IBM 6050, 6070 (Power Series 830, 850)
  • IBM 7248 (43P/100, 43P/120, 43P/133)
  • IBM 7043 (43P-140)
  • IBM 7024 (E20 and E30)
  • IBM 7025 (F30 and F40)
  • Motorola Powerstack E1
  • Motorola Ultra 603 and Ultra Plus (Bull ESTRELLA 200)
  • Motorola MTX604 series machines

Devices for which support does not exist are:

  • Secondary PCI bridge on F40.
  • SMP

Except for those specifically listed above, devices (driver names in parenthesis) supported by NetBSD/prep include:

  • Machine-independent drivers for ISA devices
  • Machine-independent drivers for EISA devices
  • Machine-independent drivers for PCI devices
  • Machine-independent drivers for PCMCIA devices
  • Machine-independent drivers for SCSI devices.
  • Machine-independent drivers for USB devices
  • Machine-independent drivers for MII devices (IEEE 802.3 Media Independent Interface, typically used for physical media interfaces for FastEthernet controllers)
  • The PC speaker (pcppi)
  • PS/2 mouse (pms)
  • Joysticks on game ports (joy)
  • VGA and SVGA Display Adapters (wscons). Note: presently only text mode is supported.
