Your setup

(Those in the know, please suggest a relevant template.)

VirtualBox2.2.0b2 on Vista64 host

Fails, doesn't get past "ISOLINUX 3.73 2009-01-25 ETCD Copyright (C) 1994-2008 H. Peter Anvin" --FGrose 18:24, 28 March 2009 (UTC)

won't boot on XO-1 with q2e33 firmware, with a workaround

I downloaded Soas2-200903271806.iso and ran latest LiveUSB-Creator 3.6.3 under Windows XP to put it and a 256 MB persistent storage area on a USB flash drive.

Insert the USB flash drive, power on XO-1, hold down check key.

  • The hot dog is back!
  • After a minute the screen goes dark.
  • After another 90 seconds of dark screen I get the blue swirl Login: screen with "liveuser",
  • Log in.
  • After several seconds that goes to dark screen, and a few seconds later I'm back at the blue Login: screen. :-(

In a console, ~liveuser has no .sugar subdirectory, so it looks like Sugar never got rolling.

The file "/var/log/slim.log" has various errors. There is no /home/liveuser/.Xauthority file, and /home/liveuser is drwx-r-xr-x owned by root.

After running in a console

chown liveuser /home/liveuser
chgrp liveuser /home/liveuser

login proceeded fine. I filed http://dev.sugarlabs.org/ticket/665

DHCP problems

In neighborhood view I see my old BEFWS11 Linksys access point, I click to connect, I get a password dialog, I enter my 128-bit WEP key. After a long pause I get the dialog again. /var/log/messages suggests that NetworkManager is connected successfully to my AP:

 Stage 2 of 5 (Device Configure) successful. Connected to wireless network mynet

but then it seems to fail in DHCP access

 avahi-daemon(1932): Registering new address record for 'nn:nn' on eth0.*.
 ...
 NetworkManager: <info> Device 'eth0' DHCP transaction took too long (>45s), stopping it.

and I get the dialog again.
