Will the process described for creating SOAS work if the Fedora system used to make the stick/SD is an XO running OLPC build 8.2?

Haven't tried it, but in theory it should work, unless there is an F9 issue I am unaware of. You'll likely need external storage for the .iso image as well as the target USB. If you try it, please report back here. --Walter 00:31, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I"m doing the yum install right now... seems to work, but it is pulling in 17K worth of rpms, including Perl... --Walter 00:40, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Would mtd-utils also be known as mtd-tools? Under Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy) there appears to be no mtd-utils but there is an mtd-tools. --Kevin Cole 10:41, 20 Mar 2009 (EST)

no se, but [1] would suggest that it is. --Walter 15:18, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
You're too quick, sir (or I'm too slow). After answering e-mails, etc, I investigated. It is indeed the same beastie: Under 8.10 (Intrepid) it is known as mtd-utils. However, under Hardy (and earlier releases) it is known as mdt-tools. Might be worth noting for those of us staying with the Long Term Support (LTS) releases. --Kevin Cole 11:51, 20 Mar 2009 (EST)

A data point for whomever... Under Hardy, I get:

 $ sudo sh Soas1-200903191225.iso Soas.img
 [sudo] password for kjcole:
 Create root filesystem...
 Build jffs2 image...
 trap: 49: SIGINT: bad trap
