I am told that
kids with Classmates have Ubuntu, and no sudo restriction, they will do 
fine, I will follow up eventually to make a detailed how-to in the TI wiki

*Younger kids (I believe until 6th grade) have been given XOs running a 
Uruguayan mod of the OLPC OS. Among the mods is a block to disable their 
sudo access.
These kids would be the goal of any "forced" Sugarization**, and the 
cause of this thread...**
Other Countries:
Apparently elsewhere there were no OS mods, whether out of wisdom or 
not, we don't know, but those are the lucky ones.
Again, no further need to do much, they can use sudo yum install, and 
that way they have more and better opportunities for their own education.

Certainly, as it pertains to developing a solution.

Not to disagree, let me just mention that we sort of needed to 
understand the goal, which, basically, is:

1) non-sudo install of certain binaries, namely

2) non-sudo run mspdebug in Terminal

Thank you all!

As I said at some moment, due to the Classmate availability, this no 
longer has as much priority for me as it used to.

Nevertheless, there just might be a brilliant geek-in-the-bud in a 5th 
grade  class in Uruguay whose world would change and he would change the 
world by being able to learn now to manage MSP430 mcus. VERY long shot, 
many other issues to achieve that, but then, who knows?
