This tutorial presumes you already have an Amiga Kickstart Rom.
The most popular home computer in the UK, in the late 80's and early 90's was the Commodore Amiga 500. The Commodore Amiga 500 was leaps ahead of it's time, only closely matched by the Atari ST. It was a few years after the Amiga 500 was launched that I was able to afford my own Amiga, the Commodore Amiga 600.
Unfortunately with the demise of Commodore in the early 90's I eventually sold my Amiga. This was replaced with an Olivetti 386 running Windows 3.1. Most of the games I played on my Commodore Amiga 600, required a PC with a 486 processor which was very expensive at the time.
It was not until around 1994 that I was able to afford my first PC, as the price of computer components had come down. I think my first PC ran a Cyrix 5x86 Processor, with 16MB of ram and no graphics card.
If your looking to relive those Amiga memories, and looking for a good emulator on Linux, fs-uae seems to tick all the boxes.
In this tutorial I will show how to install fs-uae on your Ubuntu based distribution. Of course nothing matches buying the real thing and there are plenty of second hand Commodore Amiga for sale online through reputable marketplaces.
To install the full fs-uae packages, please enter the following commands in your terminal
