I'm trying to track down the source of a problem that I've started having with my Apple IIgs all of a sudden. I've noticed that any time I try to launch a ProDOS 8 program (even something as simple as going to BASIC) the system crashes with error $0201, forcing a restart.
I looked up the error code, and it seems to be a memory allocation error. The error does not happen when running GS/OS-based programs.
If I start the system up with the SHIFT key held down (No Inits/DAs), things work normally, so I know that something there is causing the problem -- but I don't know the structure of GS/OS well enough to be able to track down exactly what init or desk accessory is the issue. I've tried disabling most of the desk accessories I have, but I don't know where else to go looking.
The desk accessories that were installed with the system when I got it were (aside from the standard Control Panel items, like General, Slots, RAM, etc.):
- Mr. Apple
- Sound Control Panel
- Chronos II
DAs I installed were:
- Twilight II
- Net Time
- AppleSqueezer GS
Just for clarity, the problem was occurring before I installed the AppleSqueezer -- so I highly doubt that its DA is the problem.
Can anyone give me an idea of where I should start looking next for issues, or is it simpler to just re-install System 6.0.4?
