Instructions to test in olpc joyride

The sugar packages from Sucrose 0.81.4 went into the olpc image joyride-2129. You can update to joyride using olpc-update or a usb key.

There are no activities in the builds any more. You can get the Sucrose 0.81.4 activities and many other interesting activities with bert's activity update script).

Note: This script will fail for the Browse activity - since we had a change in the activity name. The error will note that the activity is already installed.

Workaround: Remove ~/Activities/Web.activity and unpack the downloaded bundle.

- rm -rf ~/Activities/Web.activity
- unzip Activities/Browse-92.xo -d Activities

Then restart sugar (ctrl+alt+erase). The activity should now be available in the activity list view in the Home view.
