Comment(by sascha_silbe):

 Thanks, Hal. That doesn't look good.

 To give some background: we updated NetworkManager using an rpm cherry-
 picked from Fedora because the version from the OLPC frozen repositories
 was crashing at boot time (like it currently does for you, Hal). dx3g091
 contains NetworkManager-

 There are two possible approaches:

  1. Revert to the NetworkManager version used by OLPC
 ( and deactivate mesh support in Sugar.
  1. Roll a custom kernel to disable mesh at the kernel level (#3276).
 Possibly also revert to the previous NetworkManager version.

 Given that the OLPC builds seem to work well enough even with mesh
 support, I'm leaning towards the first option. It also avoids forking the
 OLPC kernel rpm.

 Anish, what do you think?
