Curious if anyone has seen this before. I had a working 550c with 117 MHz PPC upgrade that someone had installed Japanese OS 8.0 on. I swapped out the hard drive for a SCSI2SD with a known good 7.5.5 install (copied from my SE/30) and suddenly have an obscure problem: the Mac periodically reports it is out of memory. In particular, most apps can’t play any sounds (Crystal Quest does for some reason, and the POST chime works), instead blinking the menu bar. If I open the System suitcase and double-click a snd resource directly, I get a memory error (see photo). This happens 100% of the time including with extensions off. The system has 40MB RAM and most it is reported as free. Is there a config somewhere I’m missing? I haven’t played with a PPC machine in a while but this just seems strange.
