I have an XO-1 running OLPC's build os852 (10.1.2 release candidate
that incorporates Sugar 0.84.16) and a desktop PC running Kubuntu
I wanted to see how the library and Browse work in recent Sugar. I
downloaded the weekly testing soas-i386-20100826.15.iso from
* I tried booting a Fedora VirtualBox machine from this .iso. After
network manager eth0 configuration messages the screen stays black for
hours. garycmartin on IRC had the same experience, thought it might
be a gfx issue between Fedora and VirtualBox.
* Can an XO-1 boot from this .iso if I turn it into a Live USB?
Supposedly the F13 glibc incompatibility with Geode was fixed in July
( <https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=579838> -- great stuff
from "Dont Close Unfixed Bugs" who must be John Gilmore in a mask ;-)
* I tried to get Sugar jhbuild to work on Kubuntu several months ago,
I never succeeded and it left me with package incompatibility
Any suggestions? Ideally my PC environment would continue running and
I don't lose my OLPC build.
