In some cases there are new rpms for Sugar 0.90 that are not in a build 
yet and you want to verify if those fix an issue, you can do the following:

- download the new rpm and put it on a usb-key.

- insert that usb-key in an XO

- open a terminal and to become user root type:

- then update the rpm with the following command:
     rpm -U sugar-0.90.2-1.fc14.noarch.rpm

Note: You have to add the path to the file on the usb-key to the command 
from above. Usually the path is something like /media/[random 

Sugar is a noarch rpm [1] for sugar-toolkit you have to pick the i686 
rpm [2].

- then restart Sugar
