Supported Platforms

Linux/i386 architecture Yes
FreeBSD/i386 architecture Yes
NetBSD/i386 architecture Yes
OpenBSD/i386 architecture Probably (we need someone to verify this)
Due to the dynamic recompilation of 6502 opcodes, TuxNES currently only supports the i386 CPU architecture. If you have an intimate knowledge of another architecture's opcodes, the TuxNES Team would appreciate if you could write a translation table for that architecture.

Similarly, if you can make TuxNES run on another i386 flavor of Unix (such as Solaris/x86) please let the team know.
