I ran Debian on an A2000 fitted with a GVP G-Force 040 Combo (SCSI II)
and it was fine with 12MB - those flipping 64pin SIMMs though pah!  At
least it was fine until the Picasso2 vid card broke.  There was no
other RAM in the m/c - just 4 x 4MB GVP 60us (I think all the GVP SIMMs
were 60us).  Strange that your system should slow down - could you be
using different speed SIMMs elsewhere in the system and this is cause
timing problems?

Possibly GVPInfo, although this gives loads of system info.  As you
should have got a copy with the board, I think it would be ok for me to
mail you a copy if you wish.  Mail me direct if so.

GVPInfo Vn 1.39 - 03 Jun 1992 - 63564 bytes




...or something.
