It is the Amiga machine level debugger. :) The ROM-Wack interface can be accessed by pressing the right mouse button in Guru Meditation.

Loadwb - debug

Boot with no startup-sequence to enter AmigaDOS and type the above command in. An extra pull-down menu will appear next to TOOLS called DEBUG. I f you have a 9600 baud (8N1) terminal hooked up to the serial port, you will be in ROM-WACK (the Amiga machine level debugger).

Others say if you are on 1.3 ROM's you can enter ROM-WACK at any guru by pressing the right mouse button, again having a serial terminal hooked into the machine as described above

Rom-Wack is a Debugger Interface enabled by pressing the right mouse button on a GURU Meditation Screen

Apparently, you can also start it using loadWB -debug - but haven't tried that

RMB on a guru message.
Sends debug info via serial port

ROM Wack is the Amiga machine level debugger.

You can enable it by pressing the right mouse button in each Guru Medidation error you encounter, but it's strickly available only on the serial port of the Amiga at 9600 (8-N-1).

The next question is here (http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=23231).

We had decided to accept:

Amiga machinelevel debugger(serial debuging 9600baud), 'LoadWB -debug' can be used.

Making the amiga crash, and then use right mousebutton is not an easy way to enable it :)
