you'll see I'm copying the server-devel list -- other people are
following similar steps, so let's have technical conversations via
this list, otherwise, my inbox explodes hopelessly :-)

Thank you for your previous email outlining the new patch. We are still on
0.5.1 (maybe we need to be on 0.5.2) but did the following commands in the
school server but to no avail.
With 0.5.1 you'll see some problems with ejabberd. I'd recommend 0.5.2-dev02...
git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/users/martin/moodle.git work
cp –rf ./work/* /moodle/
I'll give you these alternative instructions - all the steps below as
the root user...
1 - to be sure, perform the full install of the XS (in your notes it's
not clear whether you had configured domains, ejabberd, etc)
2 - start postgres - `chkconfig --add pgsql-xs ; /etc/init.d/pgsql-xs start `
3 - install git `yum install git`
4 - To develop and play with moodle,
mv web web-from-rpm
git clone git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/users/martin/moodle.git web
cp web-from-rpm/config.php web/config.php
now you should have a good moodle install. Also recommeded:
- add these lines to config.php
- keep a console where you tail the error logs - I setup an xterm
below my editor and browser windows, where I use the following
tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log | perl -pe 's/\\n/\n/g'
In the XO I upgraded the Browse version to the latest and it worked!
Right... you've tried to install the Browse.xo from git, which is a
bit of trouble because it's not fully compatible.
Sudo yum install git
git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/web-activity clone
cp –rf ./clone/* /Activities/Browse.activity/
If you want to do it this way, I'd say, as user olpc, do
1 - sudo yum install git
2 - cd /home/olpc/Activities
3 - mv Browse.activity Browse.activity-original
4 - git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/web-activity Browse.activity
5 - cd Browse.activity
6 - git checkout -b sucrose-0.82 origin/sucrose-0.82
7 - from the home view, start Browse.
- steps 5 and 6 are because the 'master' development branch of Browse
doesn'twork on the 8.2.x OS. I know - awkward.
Anyway, my recommendatino is thatr you _don't_ do this either :-). On
the laptop side, just install the nicely packaged Browse-100.xo from
I am trying to get the seamless login working as I think that will be
pivotal to our deployments in the next two weeks. Thank you for your
Note that this is a development version! If it breaks... and it
probably will... you get to keep both parts.
