testing machines

  • Compaq TC4400
  • EPIC 1312 (a real POS)


Goal: Test Sugar on a stick. Get screencasts working so that I can begin to document Sugar for proof that it'll work (for me). Ultimately want to be installing Sugar or something like it in schools and NPOs.

part I This is after messing with the BIOS for a few minutes. Unfortunately, most teachers wouldn't know how to do this. A WUBI like dual boot option at the beginning of startup might be a better option for the Aunt Tillies of the world.

part II This is where I figure out that F1 is the network view key. Thanks to the friendly people at the IRC!

part VI Trying to copy error messages from the terminal. No joy. The activities have seized.


Evaluating Sugar for rollout on thin and fat clients in local schools.

Here is a link to the videos with the bugs I've encountered while trying to get Sugaronastick to work on my HP/Compaq TC4400
