You may be better with Geneva I think it was ?

I don't know about the latest MiNT kernels but anything up to version 1.12 came in both 68000 (default) or 68030 (special version) binaries.

Latest kernels are in those flavours too. MINT000.PRG or MINT030.PRG

I found even on MegaSTE with 4MB its not really enough grunt and ram to practically use MiNT.

Ah, it must have bloated a bit over time then, probably all the plug-in filesystem and MiNTnet code. I did a bit of the initial coding/porting of MiNTOS on my 520STM with 2.5MB RAM and 28MB Third Coast Technologies (ICD + Seagate) hard disk. That was before the MiNT kernel worked properly on the TT. Those were the days... :lol:

To the OP...

Try disabling the extensions such as MiNTnet and that sound driver. Just include the minimal set of extensions, in case it's running out of memory.

Yeah, it should run on the ST as well. As mentioned, try to strip it down, ideally to only MINT.PRG without any modules.

Remove unnecessary kernal modules from the folder c:\mint\cur\19-xxxxx\

it looks like there is a module for an non exisiting hardware. Maybe DSP ? Did you check if you also copiyed the right kernel modules to this folder ? Must also be for the 000 Kernel .
