This tutorial presumes you already have an Amiga Kickstart Rom.
One of my all time favourite computers was the Commodore Amiga. 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. It was a bit of a shock, most of the games I happily played on my Commodore Amiga 600, needed at least a PC running a 486 processor which was very expensive at the time.
It was not until around 1994 that I was able to buy 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.
24 years later we have so much computer power at our finger tips, we can emulate all the old machines and consoles. If your looking for a good emulator on Linux to play your favourite Amiga games all over again, fs-uae seem 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
