to my surprise, setting CPU to 16 or 32 MHz makes no difference in

of bus errors and crashes with my DSP stuff.

Is this intentional/known fact?


I had a look to this, and the problem is in fact that TOS 4 will configure bus speed during the boot to default 16 MHz by writing to $ff8007 (it can be 8 MHz too in STF/STE compatible mode).

The status bar was not updated in that case, but cpu speed was changed.

What this means is that you can't start in Falcon mode directly at 32 MHz ; this is a non standard freq and it will be overwritten by the TOS during the boot. You must change cpu freq later to 32 MHz, when gem appears for example.

I committed a change to correctly update the status bar in case of a write to $ff8007.
