Re: new F11-for-XO1 images available for testing



Hi all,

We (OLPC folks, me) are still trying to find a spot to host the build machine for this
so that we can do continuous or daily automated builds for testing.

I know it's jumping ahead a bit, but is this (for xo1 or 1.5) going to be updatable with yum? Leaving aside the utility of yum updates for XO in general ... for testing these builds it will be much more possible for testers to pull some updated rpms every day or week than pull 300MiB images and overwrite our device memory every day/week. Especially for the wonderful people in distant lands with slow and
unreliable lines.

If this was already FAQ'd I do apologise.

Thanks,
adric

Hi,

I just built 2 images of F11-for-XO1 on OLPC infrastructure according
to my own instructions.
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/F11_for_XO-1

The first one is based on the backport that I built and tested before
(a few weeks ago), so it will probably work:
http://dev.laptop.org/~dsd/f11-xo1/os1

and the second one is updated with all of the recent changes that have been happening in XO-1.5 software development, bringing the 2 trees in
sync at the present time
http://dev.laptop.org/~dsd/f11-xo1/os2

Neither have been tested since the internet connection here in Nepal
is very slow - I will download them over the weekend.
It would be great if anyone is interested in testing during that time
though. I would suggest starting with os2 and falling back on os1 if
it doesn't work.

I'm still looking for people to take on the role of making these
builds on a regular basis - for me, these builds are just a one-off
for now.

The usual cautions apply: this is development code, there will be
bugs. Installation instructions: use copy-nand to install osX.img with
osX.crc.

Install went just fine.

Have an issue doing Activity updates in Sugar.  Looks like the system
completes the update, however it then comes back and lists the same Activity
as still needing to be updated.

I know that with the increased memory/cpu on the XO-1..5 running Firefox is trivial, however with the limited memory of the XO-1, Midori may be a better
option.

When using Gnome having issues with screen brightness.

That's all for now but will keep testing.
