Well, that means either the patch didn't properly solve the underlying
cause, or the problem you experienced had a different cause to the
By the way, you can more rapidly restart Sugar on the XO by using the
key sequence Control/Alt/Erase. This terminates the X server and
restarts it. Less time cost than a full restart. Don't use it more
than a few times per minute though, because if you do the system then
decides something is wrong and won't start X.

Your test reports on that patch would be useful in ticket #10016. I've
added a link to this discussion.

Sorry, I presumed too much knowledge on your part. sugar-devel@ is a
developers mailing list. ;-) Yes, that looks like the right place. I
would "yum install patch" first, and then "cd
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/" before trying something like "patch
--dry-run --strip 2 < /tmp/sugar-0.84-1719.patch" to see if the patch
matches the source, and if it reports no problems I'd repeat it without
the --dry-run option. Then I'd restart Sugar with Control/Alt/Erase and
the new code would be running.

They are replaced automatically.
