While I doubt that anyone is running AMIX, I found a slew of AMIX files in the
contrib dir on the Gateway vol 2 CD here.
Here's the README:

 These archives are a donation from Klaus Burckert.

 Klaus currently works at Village Tronic, at was, is and will be
 responsible for the hardware design of the graphic boards
 "Domino", "Picasso II", "Mac Picasso" and "Picasso IV". Also he
 worked a lot on the Ethernet-Board "Ariadne".

 Since long his hobby was AMIX. Having an A2000 with a GVP
 Series II SCSI adaptor, he wrote support for this adaptor for AMIX.

 Also, he wrote about a dozen of very sophisticated X Servers for
 several graphic boards.

 Having intented to release this stuff for years, he finally found
 a place to distribute it on the Gateway! Vol. 2.

 You can reach Klaus via email:

 Thanks Klaus!

The directory contains GVP stuff, an Ariadne driver, X11R4 and R5, and a
"SVGA" driver, which supports the following cards:

    - Domino 32K
        - Domino 16M
            - oMniBus
                - Merlin (in ZorroII mode)
                    - Picasso II (only in linear mode)
                        - Piccolo (in ZorroII mode)
                            - Spectrum (in ZorroII mode)
If you want them, tell me and I'll upload them somewhere.
