Hi, Is there any way I can ask the OLPC to broadcast the UDP packets. I am broadcasting the UDP packets by writing to the UDP port and setting the destination address to 255.255.255.255 . I am using ports 61556 and 61557 for communication. So if the antenna of the OLPC ( and hence its wireless

Hi Stan! I'm having problems: Adobe FlashPlayer doesn't detect the XO's built-in webcam so it can't transmit video out to the Internet on Flash-enabled web sites, I've documented this problem as well at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Adobe_Flash - The XO's webcam is not interfacing properly with

Hi Peter, thanks for the reply, Is this on 8.2.0 or joyride? It looks like 8.2 due to the gnome-python version being olpc3. It's running a joyride F10 build, but looks like you're right about olpc3. Here's the /etc/yum.repos.d/olpc-development.repo shipped in Joyride:
