Live USB on XO-1 with q2e32 firmware
I used LiveUSB Creator to put this build on 1.90GB USB flash drive with 256 persistent area.
There's a delay of over a minute delay at a blank screen, after the "hot dog" screen shows boot completed.
All the known issues with Fedora builds on XO listed at olpc:Rawhide-XO#Known issues are still present: I have to hold down the check key, no sound, no power management, many OLPC keyboard keys don't work, etc.
Browse failed to start. The first time the globe icon pulsed, I looked away, and after about 30 seconds the Journal displayed and there was no Browse in the frame or Alt+Tab. The second time the world icon pulsed, I saw the Browse window appear with "File not found", and then the Journal displayed. Both times I saw nothing relevant in ~/.sugar/default/logs or /var/log/messages. The WebAactivity log showed "Received SaveYourself", "Received SaveComplete". I had no network connectivity.
The default home page for Browse is /usr/share/library-common/index.html which does not exist (see bug 574 and 645). I created a dummy page here and Browse started fine!
I tried browsing file:///home/liveuser and Browse hung, putting up a busy cursor.
I restarted Browse from Terminal using `sugar-launch org.laptopWebActivity` and tried browsing http://sugarlabs.org
, again with no internet connectivity. That locked Browse, and it eventually died with "Illegal instruction". Since Browse starts at http://sugarlabs.org
if /usr/share/library-common/index.html does not exist, this is probably the same lockup as the first.
