I tried to install TuxMath with:

sudo yum --downloadonly --downloaddir=/home/olpc/Documents install tuxmath

This failed on an xo-1.75: (13.2.0) with the message Error: Cannot 
retrieve metalink for repository: fedora/18/armhfp

It also failed on an xo-1 (12.1.0): with the message Error: Cannot 
retieve metalink for repository: fedora

However, an xo-1.5 (13.2.1) downloaded three files:

I installed with
    rpm -ivh *.rpm with no reported problems

However, when I executed tuxmath:


it started. However, after a short while, I got a Segmentation fault.

I thought that Nathan installed these rpms and then ran the Tuxmath 
activity instead of running from the command line. I downloaded and 
installed tuxmath-2.xo.
It failed to start because activity.info is not correct. I changed it to:

exec = sugar-activity activity.TuxMathStart

After rebooting, I launched TuxMath successfully. However, when I 
clicked on 'play', nothing happened.

The log showed an exception in activity.py at line 185:  f = 
open(script_path,'w') where script_path is None. The script_path 
variable is set at line 192 in

the button_play_clicked_cb , as os.getenv("TUXMATH_SCRIPT"). The script 
that was to be executed calls a binary module in TuxMath.activity/bin. 
Hopefully, these modules were recompiled for ARM.

I don't know how any of this relates to installing missing dependencies; 
however, it is clear that  tuxmath in ASLO is a no-go.
