I was using NVDI 5.03, but it turns out that NVDI 2.51 and NVDI 3.01 work great with the Extended VDI modes! NVDI 4 complains about a missing offscreen driver.

I don't use it on most of my machines because of how much RAM it takes. NVDI is wonderful, but on my Mega 2 machine, I can't sacrifice the RAM.

RAM upgrade for a Mega STe?

Hi there,

I just got a Mega STe. It has 4 mb of RAM in it, but I was wondering if there were any ALT-RAM expansions for it that I might be able to add? It would be interesting to run MiNT on it, but more RAM would make that manageable.

Thanks!

One question on running this in Hatari - does it have OLDTOSFS enabled? Not being able to use GEMDOS drives seriously limits use of this in Hatari.

I wouldn't try this with NVDI - it doesn't seem to like the Extended VDI.

Better yet, just disable password logins in /etc/ssh/sshd_config and use an SSH key.

Okay, I switched it to a 68000 and it seems to work. That explains it. Sounds like I'll keep two different configs in Minimig, one that's an ECS 68000 and one that's an AGA 68020.
