A minor update to Sugar Clone, a tool to clone a customized
Sugar on a Stick device onto another USB stick.
1. Build-dated release files to distinguish different versions.
2. A 10-second pause to review pending action for the case where
there is only one destination device. Pressing any key will
cancel the cloning script.
3. Use df for disk free space calculation in Sugar Cellar to
better estimate usable home directory space available.
4. Bug fixes
a. Invalid home directory size in Sugar Cellar when logged in
as the root user.
1. Before booting the SoaS device that will be the source of the new
SugarClone, copy the SugarClone script to the root '/' folder at
the base of the filesystem for the device, or, to /mnt/live (from
the perspective of a running LiveOS image).
2. Boot the USB stick into SoaS and insert a second USB device into
the computer running that SoaS image.
3. In the Terminal Activity of that running SoaS image, enter the
If there is more than one USB/SD storage device available, a menu of
the devices will appear to allow you to select the target device.
The scripts will copy the currently running image to the target device. When
that device is booted, a new, Sugar Learner sign-in will be triggered. The
previously customized Journal and operating system will be present on the
Sugar Clone image.
On a running LiveOS image, the root folder of the USB/SD device is
available at the /mnt/live mount point. The SugarClone script
can be obtained (assuming Internet connectivity) as follows:
1. In the Terminal Activity, change the working directory:
2. wget http://people.sugarlabs.org/fgrose/SugarClone
3. chmod +x SugarClone
at this point, you may simply execute
