Interesting, though I don't know quite what it means. Does it mean that Sheep Shaver has problem allocating memory?
In the link Jim Watters provided if you click sheep shaver, it will go to the page I linked to in my e-mail. There must be some connection between this Gwenole guy and Christian Bauer, perhaps a nickname? You might want to keep questioning Mr. Watters, ask him more aboue what he told you and who Gwenole is. I'm sending the e-mail now regardless.
The MMU is, as I understand it, basically what allows virtual memory to work; it is part of what lets you write memory data to disk instead of holding all of it in RAM. SheepShaver does not provide one (and never will, don't ask, it's been discussed to death, people will get very annoyed :)). So it doesn't have problems allocating memory persay, but it lacks a feature of all modern computers. I wondered about this problem when first discovering that Ferazel didn't work, but I can't imagine that it would require an MMU and not give any sort of error or anything. But you never know, I guess.
Christian Bauer is the original developer of SheepShaver (and Basilisk II, I think). Gwenole Beauchesne is currently the one developing and maintaining it, and is probably the one you want to email about it. However, there has been very little activity lately, I seem to remember hearing that he was on vacation earlier in the summer and he's probably back and busy on other projects.
I imagine that we're not going to get this to work, but by all means, give it a shot, good luck!
