Re: Ready for production....just need the product.

Todd -

I don't understand why someone thought F10 for the XO would be done BEFORE today, since today's the GA release date (and has been for some time). I certainly never expected to see a GA release sooner, and in fact expected you'd take a day or two after getting the GA release to make sure you were comfortable with it before going into production.

I have always relied on the livecd-iso-to-disk.sh script from Jeremy at http://katzj.fedorapeople.org/olpc/ and while I would wait to hear from him before production, I believe that is the right source. The most recent version is dated yesterday (24-Nov-2008).

I'm not really sure what to do here. I emailed Jeremy yesterday and haven't heard back.

At this point we have customers expecting to have their orders shipped TODAY, and I still don't have the final livecd-iso-to- disk.sh script we are supposed to use, or an ISO to use it on. There will still be a couple of hours of testing after getting them before we can do a production run. With each passing means that just that many more customers will not have their orders mailed out today.

We have been told all along that F10 for the XO would be finished BEFORE today, and that there wouldn't be a problem getting what we needed for production prior to the F10 release. Obviously getting anything in advance is no longer possible, and I'm wondering, from the lack of input here, just where things stand?

It's crunch time here and all I hear are crickets chirping.

I would be absolutely certain to check with Jeremy Katz to be sure you are indeed using the latest livecd-iso-to-disk.sh script. There have been some recent fixes that you need to have. Otherwise I would be also sure that you have a final F10 ISO image and wait for feedback on others doing testing, especially testing on different ROM versions (unless you're planning on doing that yourself). I just want to encourage you to take a little extra time for testing before you start cranking on duplication!

Who can I talk to about getting the final F10 XO image ASAP so we (On-Disk.com) can start production?

Or should I build it using the latest livecd-iso-to-disk.sh script + final live i686 ISO to make the XO SD card layout? If so, can I get a early download link for the ISO and the exact livecd-iso-to- disk.sh script that you wish to be used for the final product?
