The A4000 IDE is a rather harmless device, it doesn't do any DMA, just PIO, and there is nothing on the bus that would easily explain such an issue. For the 68040, the IDE registers look like any...

No worries about that. The algorithm to tell the A500 apart from the A2000 is that whenever an autoconfiguring hardware is found, it is an A500. Now, what UAE does is that it adds its own extensions...

I afraid this would only happen if someone would sponsor or lend me a system with a CVisionPPC in it. I currently have neither a CVisionPPC, leave alone a system where I could install one.

P96 and "Native" driver instead of FBlit. FBlit is a can of worms.



There is no 3.9 ROM. There is a 3.1 ROM and a 3.9 workbench plus ROM-Modules.

Well, Lattice was (one of the) "inhouse compiler(s)" CBM had, but it was certainly not "by CBM", but (hopefully) licensed by them. The followup product SAS/C is still the Amiga C reference compiler.

Never, never ever, mix FBlit and friends with P96. This will not work - it will only create chaos. If you want to use P96 and release chip ram, use the "Native" driver for P96 from Aminet.

Yes, it does. Just that the drive LED workaround is not responsible for the delay. I just wished I had never added this option. It just takes a while to setup MMU talbes.

Not on a physical level, but on a software level, you can "lock" a partition such that writes are declined. However, this change is not permanent and does not persist booting.

About the only difference to 3.9 is that the latter includes reaction. There isn't much more because the core system of 3.1.4 is based on 3.9 code, just with many many fixes we found on the way.
