  If that fixes the problem, the issues is that the OS is not switching

i only realized recently that the final unfreeze of the screen
is not done in bootanim, as i expected, but by way of sugar installing
a g_idle callback that sends a message to ohmd to do the unfreeze.  so
if either sugar or ohmd don't start correctly, the screen will stay
frozen.  this doesn't seem optimal to me.  (and it may be that i have
it wrong, and there's another unfreeze mechanism as well.)

(when powerd replaces ohmd, it simply does the unfreeze after 10 seconds
have passed.  also sub-optimal.)

  You can disable pretty-boot by adding these lines to /boot/olpc.fth :
  
 unfreeze visible
  
  The second line, just after the comment line, is a good place for them.

Thanks Mitch,

Actually that report is with the check button held down.

I also like this idea, but the people currently working on soas might

Anyone would like to take this task and take care of making available
image files for every .iso release?

I've been unsuccessful so far.

Existing OLPC 8.2 (767) build is missing various dependancies (not  
surprising as it's based on F9); cjb's F11 XO builds have everything  
needed, but the XO hardware seems to run out of ram part way through  
livecd-iso-to-xo script, locking things up and or restarting.

Wanted to mention this as it's a roadblock for folks with XOs to try  
and make their own installable image from the ongoing Soas work. The  
only images I've been able to boot on XOs so far are those from cjb.

The same goes for .vmdk files, I would love to have .vmdk files created
using
http://sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_on_a_Stick_VirtualBox/Preparing_a_disk_image
available
for each snapshot.

Regards,
Wade

  Hi,
 
  below are some instructions for flashing the last Sugar on a Stick

  Could someone volunteer to test and wikify them?
 
  Thanks,

  on the XO, boot with the usb stick plugged in and get into OFW, then
  type the following commands
 
  ok disable-security
  ok copy-nand u:\Soas-200903051021.img
 
  then the XO will reboot and you should get into Sugar.

Re: [Sugar-devel] instructions for flashing SoaS on a XO

 Glad to hear it works, I'm going to try it this weekend on my XO.
 I wonder if we could get the release team to execute these steps
 automatically for each release, and then make .img files available on
 downloads.sugarlabs.org along with the .iso files?  That would skip a lot
 of potential mistakes that users might make, and would lower the barrier to
 entry (e.g. no Fedora or Ubuntu machine req).


I can probably have that done via a cron job on teach.laptop.org (running F9
currently) that scps the result to d.sl.o.

Good that it works -- another option we can use. It's still an iso
with an overlay however, which won't be happy on jffs2 and has a nasty
memory footprint. Are there ways to unpack the squashfs in the iso
unto an image?

cheers,

*Actually* -- now that I've read livecd-to-xo.sh ... I have to eat my
words. Chris' script does exactly the right thing - it unpacks the
squashfs unto a jffs2. Perfecto.

cheers,
