Well, this was in 4-bit Videl-mode, so I assumed it would work fine.

This was the 0.94b-archive from July.

The bus errors only occured when running MiNT/N.AES.

Videl 4-bit, 640x480, no NVDI, TK 5.09, shadow-buffer on. I have not tried
it on my Nova yet, I assume that the current RAGE.SYS won't work on anything
