flying toaster

Our goal is to allow any XO user or XO in book mode (even as a kiosk) to select and create:

  • USB sticks (such as Sugar on a Stick) An instruction document Creation Kit is helpful
  • a CD or DVD disc from an .iso image if an external drive is connected

We will use as simple a user interface as possible for use semi-unattended as a kiosk. We plan to do extensive compatibility testing on XO 1.0 and 1.5 hardware as well as on builds which are already deployed. An important part of making this activity successful will be implementing methods that are usable on as wide a hardware and software user base as possible.

Our project was approved for the OLPC Contributor program after completing a proposal. Our development environments also include Virtualbox hosted .iso images.

We are making progress.

There are many ways to create USB sticks and much work has been done that we can use. Creating a CD or DVD is relatively simple with connected hardware. Collaboration is encouraged as we get the project going. We recommend you begin by providing input through the email list. Inspiration for this project comes from many similar projects to share free and open source software.
