OK!  An expedient solution is now the last or near last
submission here.,918.0.html
Essentially, "sudo ln -s /lib /lib/i386-linux-gnu".

The body of /usr/aos/source/Linux.I386.Unix.Mod has 
	libraryPaths[0] := "/lib/i386-linux-gnu";
	libraryPaths[1] := "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu";
These paths are mentioned here,

but not in any of these.

*/lib/i386* appears to be an emerging multiarch thing.

[Announcement] Sugarizer v0.5 is available for your device

Hi all,


I'm proud to announce the fifth version (0.5) of Sugarizer, a taste of Sugar for any device.


I've decided to put the focus on this version on three majors points:

  • Responsive Design: to ensure that Sugarizer could work on any screen size, from the smallest smartphone screen (320x480) to the bigger tablet screen (2560x1600).
  • Android support: I've done a huge work to ensure that Sugarizer and activities work well on Android so I've fixed lot of issues related to Android limitation. Of course due to diversity of the Android ecosystem, some issues could still exist on Android versions lower than 4.2.
  • Firefox OS support: Thanks to Mozilla foundation that help me on that, Firefox and Firefox OS are now #1 platforms for Sugarizer. Sugarizer has been tested successfully on Firefox browser and on several Firefox OS devices (Keon, Peak, Flame).


Finally, because it's very important for us that Sugar/Sugarizer could be accessible to every users, I've packaged and published Sugarizer on three major app stores:

Of course, you could also install it by yourself using instructions on the Sugarizer website if you don't like stores.


Other features of this version:

  • Updated TurtleJS version, now save automatically context in the Journal
  • Updated Gears version, now use colors for gears
  • New Etoys activity (beta)
  • Favorites activities are now saved in user settings (so, could be retrieved from a device to another)
  • Favorites activities are now configurable at server settings
  • German localization


Do not hesitate to fork and contribute: I need you to Sugarize the world !

All contributors are welcome.




P.S.: Special thanks for their contribution on this version to: Jorge Alberto Gómez López (TurtleJS activity), Manuel Quiñones (Gears activity), Bert Freudenberg (Etoys activity), Christian Stroetmann (German localization), Jason Weathersby (Firefox OS support).

signed /boot/olpc.fth

Hi James, OLPC community,

I'm looking to be able to run a forth script in secured laptops in the Peru deployment. I'm the buildmaster for the current production image, and hold the crypto keys necessary.

Please point me to some docs or simple procedure off the top of your head, if you have it.

Also, Is there perhaps forth code available for a simple, nice menu?

Thanks in advance,

Sebastian Silva

Status of marvell-ipp

Dear all,

I'm the maintainer of a small desktop Linux OS (FatdogArm) which runs on many ARM platforms including OLPC
XO-1.75 and XO-4; together with Yioryos we released support for OLPC late last year. 

I have recently looked at video playback acceleration and have successfully managed to get it going for
other platforms, so I'm thinking to do so on OLPC as well. Before I start, though, I'd like to ask you about
the status of marvell-ipp ( as of today? 

I checked the OLPC git repos and rpmdropbox and I can't get the marvel-ipp binaries there. I can actually
find these  binaries by doing google search (and the binaries were clearly marked for OLPC usage) but I
would rather be in the clear when it comes to licensing - are these licensed to OLPC so that they can be used in
any OS that runs on the XOs, or are the license more restricted than that? (ie: no license at all, license per
region, official OLPC OS only, etc, etc). If it is licensed freely, then is there an official location
where I can get this binaries? 

Thank you.
