If you are going to try out OS10 for the XO-1 here are a few things that need

I have a G1G1 XO-1. I upgraded my firmware to q2e41, then used the nand-flash method to install OS10. (Earlier attempts were not so fruitful, but I eventually figured out how to format the usb thumbdrive as FAT16 in Mac OS X "Snow Leopard," and that made things much better.)

Then I did "yum update" and let it update whatever it wanted. Then I did the Software Update control panel. Then I did the testing below.

Here's the "about" after all of this update fever:
Serial CSN74903BFC
Build: OLPC release 11 (Leonidas)
Sugar: 0.84.2
Firmware Q2E41
Wireless Firmware: 5.110.22.p23

Does it boot consistently into Sugar?  Gnome?
I haven't used Gnome. It seems to boot reliably into Sugar. 

Any strange lockups?  If so what were you doing?
"Record" crashes on launch.

Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'sugar-activity' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
 (Details: serial 62 error_code 11 request_code 131 minor_code 19)
 (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
  that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
  To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
  option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
  backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I think I tried all the activities that came with, and they all work pretty well except for Record. Some have visual aberrations in the "Activity"/"Edit" etc tabs. Also, many do not show the "Stop Sign" icon, but show a weensy menu instead.

Can you upgrade packages using "yum update" from the command line?
sudo, then yum update succeeded well.

Does sound work?
Yes, quite well.

Can you suspend?  Does it wake up?
Closing lid to sleep, opening lid to wake seems to work fine, with the exception of the trackpad. Once any sleep activity happens, the trackpad no longer causes the pointer to move. I am not sure if trackpad activity can wake the computer, but it certainly cannot move the pointer.

I did see some odd behavior when I just left it sitting there -- The screen would dim after a while, and then the screen would brighten back up, as if it were trying to go to sleep but something was waking it up.

Let me know what else I can do to help.
