Cyberdog problems

I have a PowerMac 7600/120 with MacOS 7.6.1 and 64MB RAM with virtual
memory enabled.  I was running Cyberdog 2.0 with Opendoc 1.2 fine for
more than a month and then suddenly I am having problems with Cyberdog.
It all started when I was trying to download mail.  It would start the
download of the first message and then freeze.  The only way to get out
of it was force quit Cyberdog.  I restarted Cyberdog and tried to open a
different Notebook.  It would just freeze again.  Force quit again.  I
gave up and trashed Opendoc and Cyberdog including all the editors,
preferences, etc.  I even ditched the desktop files of all disk
volumes.  Zapped PRAM, ran Norton utilities, ran disinfectant, and then
reinstalled Opendoc 1.2 and Cyberdog 2.0.  Now, Cyberdog would not even
launch successfully and open the default notebook.  It would just
freeze.  I have to force quit.

        Anybody have any ideas.  I am really frustrated because Cyberdog was my
favorite software and I almost thought of ditching Netscape 3.01.  I am
glad I didn't.  Netscape, Nifty Telnet, Anarchie, etc. (all TCP/IP apps)
run fine.  Currently, I am without a mail client.  I don't want to use
Netscape mail because I hate it.  I don't have any other email
software.  For now, I am just telnetting to my shell account with Nifty
telnet and reading the mail using the good old Pine (ascii based).

Please email me if you have any suggestions to siva@mtco.com.

Given that you have 64 megs of RAM, why not try running the system without virtual memory enabled, and see how Cyberdog performs? You may have to reinstall Cyberdog, and even the system again (because when you trashed all those files, you might have accidentally trashed something you shouldn't have!)

Rather than email you I will leave this as a public comment so that others can see it and maybe correct me if I'm wrong, or to add to it.

You should install Cyberdog V 1.2. I also updated Cyberdog from 1.2 to 2.0 and got problems with some of the items in my notebook.
I suggest that the problem is apple-made.
