Well, there's some good news. It seems that FS-UAE can now properly boot and run a NetBSD image with a few extra options to set the controller type and the disk type to be SCSI. What I haven't figured out yet is how to network with the emulated A2065 ethernet card, and searches offer almost nothing that talks about host side networking configuration.

Perhaps I'll make a separate post about that...

I would like to run BSD on my 68060 2000 so I am definitely interested in your work.

I believe Amiga Unix is available some where.

Sure, but 1) compiling modern software on AMIX is hardly straightforward, and 2) it only runs on pre-AGA Amigas, and not on m68040 or m68060 accelerators, and only supports certain SCSI, graphics and networking cards.

NetBSD/amiga runs on any Amiga with an MMU and at least 8 megabytes of memory. Want to run nginx, Apache, python, et cetera? Want to run an email server? Not a problem.

We should have a NetBSD/amiga image soon :)

If someone does pull this off (NetBSD for m68k) could you possibly upload a good quality video to either youtube or Vimeo of the desktop environment?  I've always been fascinated by the idea of running modern-ish *nix on Amiga, and I've never actually seen it done.
Back away from the EU-SSR!

NetBSD for the Amiga sounds great.
I guess one could make an Amix theme. :)
Yet there are better looking themes.

I thought it deserved its own thread:
