Hi all,

First post to this list. I've got a Power Mystic -- a Color Classic 
with an LC575 motherboard, and a PPC601 upgrade card (66MHz model), and 
it''s working great, except for one thing: the 256k L2 cache doesn't 

TattleTech detects it as present, but reports it as not enabled. The 
Apple 601 Processor Upgrade control panel (which is the proper CP for 
the Apple and Daystar varieties of this card) only allows one to toggle 
between the 601 and the on-board 68040; no L2 cache on/off switch.

According to Low End Mac, every card ever produced in this form factor 
(Apple, Daystar, Sonnet) has a 256k L2 cache. I have tried using 
various Daystar Control Panels, but they do not turn on the L2 cache 
either, Daystar's PowerControl has a button for L2 cache info, but it 
is greyed out. NewerTech's old Cache-22 util (part of their Guages 
package) crashes before it can finish starting up.

I've googled the Web and Usenet, and I've checked the Pickle's LEM FAQ, 
all to no avail.

Any ideas?


P.S. I hope this is on-topic here--I figured that since it's a 575 mobo 
involved at the core of things, this question is more at home here than 
on 1st PowerMacs or CompactMacs.
