powerd or ohm?

Hi, I think f11 for the XO 1.5 uses ohmd but from a recent message from Paul I think the images for the XO-1 are configured to use powerd or at least doesn't start ohmd by default. Steve, is there any plan on this? Thanks, Tomeu -- «Sugar Labs is anyone who participates in improving and

I was testing latest os (OS64) on XO1.5 with latest firmware (Q3A25) this weekend. There are some thing that I think may be bugs, but before reporting it I'd like to see if others experienced similar problems. Everything below applies to Sugar on OS64 on XO1.5 - I did not test gnome. 1) After

XO-1.5 video rendering not always smooth

In the new snow-1.xo Activity, the falling white spots are noticeably jerkier in os64 (XO-1.5) than in os10 (XO-1). Also, on os64 the (software?) cursor sometimes flickers annoyingly. It is always noticeable in the google-chrome browser (on Sugar), and for instance in the new version of the

The support for the (brand new) video hardware found in the XO-1.5 is still in teething stages -- this is why the performance is bad. We've got the appropriate tickets open but it will take us some time to get there. I searched, but did not find tickets specifically addressing poor motion nor

That was very helpful, Martin. I will try the global glossary. I also noted that if users are added as guests only, then they can see the resources but are not connected by the presence service. A less elegant way to do it perhaps. On the B4s below, well I have two C1s and 2 B4s and they were all
