There is one user in the #debian-68k IRC channel who has tried installing Debian
on his A4000 with a A3660 and a BigRAMPlus installed and while the user is currently
running into problems with the kernel being stuck, to my surprise, the kernel seems
to be able to use and detect the extra memory from the BigRAMPlus (see below).
The kernel is reporting an address conflict though:
[ 6.140000] Zorro: Probing AutoConfig expansion devices: 3 devices
[ 6.150000] zorro: Address space collision on device Zorro device 12128600 (Individual Computers) [??? 0x50000000-]
The question whether the lock up is caused by the BRP. But since this Amiga has only
16 MB FAST RAM, the user hasn't tested to boot without the BRP yet.
I will dig out my BRP tomorrow and see if it's actually detected in my A4000 as well with current kernel versions.
