Well, like it says, the actual error message is elsewhere, so we can't
help you much without further information. Can you post the full
Please make sure to update sugar-jhbuild and install anything
"./sugar-jhbuild depscheck" mentions (except for gnome-python2-evince
- I still need to fix the Read dependencies) before trying again.
If there's no error message (or just something unhelpful), please try
running the following command directly:
Xephyr :100 -ac -title 'Sugar in a window' -screen 800x600 -noreset
I expect it to fail, but once you tried that you can use the Fedora

Your now-working Debian Wheezy setup should be better than a Fedora 16
one (at least Fedora 17 seems to be required for everything to work),
