Hi Tom, I just installed riscix on an a440 (4MB, arm3, memc1a) today and had the same issue you're seeing here. I'm pretty sure the image is good.
One theory I had was y2k compatibility, This is the first machine I tested where I'd set the date to the current time. Perhaps you could try a fresh image off the website and see what it does with a date in the 90's (assuming arculator was using the correct date)?
I've reimaged my HD with the image I had locally, and it's working! (ls, startx (though not a video mode I can display here)) The image I uploaded to the website had a different md5sum, so at some point in the chain I appear to have corrupted it, the image was possibly bad!
Please re-download the disc image off the website.

I also ran with the date set back to 1991
, in case there were any y2k issues, perhaps in the disc checking program that runs on startup?
I ran with the !RiscIX that's on the disc image, I did not need to update it to the newer one (even for RO3).
TomWalker: I think this will fix your issues, I was seeing the exact same programs working and not on my machine with the old hd image.
dangardner: This *might* fix your issue
Once I can figure out exactly what was causing the issues, I'll update the website to make sure it's correct.
