I see a working Sugar on a Stick as a good target for a novice user.
This Level Two page hopes to address more advanced "Getting Started" topics.
Buy vs Build
Note: If this is going to be your first attempt at running Sugar, you might take the advice "buy rather than build". For purchase information for Sugar pre-installed on a bootable USB flash drive, see Sugar Creation Kit#Commercial source of SoaS-loaded media.
Not that I want to discourage people from buying, but I am not 100% sure about this paragraph. It seems that making the USB key is the (relatively) easy part. Configuring the bias for launch is the hard part. (The other hard part is sorting out from all the choices which version to run -- which would not be made any easier if you purchase.) --Walter 09:26, 2 December 2011 (EST)
- I would like to include a paragraph discussing older versions. Why would one choose not to use the latest version? --Inkyfingers 09:38, 2 December 2011 (EST)
- Alternate: Boot from burned CD and enter "liveinst" in root terminal of sugar
- This starts the fedora anaconda installer and you can select your 4 GB or larger USB; or your Hard Disk; as the media to install to.
- (this is a real installation) not a compressed file system with a persistence file)
