Sebastian, can you copy the 2/4g removable images from the buildslave
How about I add a "dist" target to the makefile that does this?

As you pointed out, the instructions are for the *removable*.tar.lzma.
Other files won't work with the verbatim instructions.

Actually that should work, since OFW doesn't need anything but
/boot/olpc.fth to exist in the first partition (as long as that
partition is readable by OFW, like ext3). So I'm not sure what went
wrong for you.

No. It should work if you untar it into the root of a ext3 USB stick,
lzma -dc /path/to/soas04xo.tree.tar.lzma - | tar xf -

I haven't tried that build itself on any sticks. But I don't know of
any reason why it shouldn't work. I'm happy to fix any problems
