NetBSD
------

NetBSD is a free, fast, secure, and highly portable Unix-like Open
Source operating system.  It is available for a [wide range of
platforms](https://wiki.NetBSD.org/ports/), from large-scale servers
and powerful desktop systems to handheld and embedded devices.

Building
--------

You can cross-build NetBSD from most UNIX-like operating systems.
To build for amd64 (x86_64), in the src directory:

    ./build.sh -U -u -j4 -m amd64 -O ~/obj release

Additional build information available in the [BUILDING](BUILDING) file.

Binaries
--------

- [Daily builds](https://nycdn.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily/HEAD/latest/)
- [Releases](https://cdn.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD/)

Testing
-------

On a running NetBSD system:

    cd /usr/tests; atf-run | atf-report

Troubleshooting
---------------

- Send bugs and patches [via web form](https://www.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/sendpr.cgi?gndb=netbsd).
- Subscribe to the [mailing lists](https://www.netbsd.org/mailinglists/).
  The [netbsd-users](https://netbsd.org/mailinglists/#netbsd-users) list is a good choice for many problems; watch [current-users](https://netbsd.org/mailinglists/#current-users) if you follow the bleeding edge of NetBSD-current.
- Join the community IRC channel [#netbsd @ freenode](https://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=#netbsd).
