New ASLO

Hi all!

I have been working more on the new ASLO.  I have removed a lot of animations (almost all?) so it works much better on the XO (what do you think <at> Gonzalo?).  Please check it out and get some cool activities:  http://www.aslo.cf/   It is also really fast to load (I hope); less than half a mb on your first visit!

Anyway, we should "discuss this as a feature" now that it has a feature page http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/New_ASLO

I think this is ready to be pushed, but my opinions are usually a bit gun-ho.  Just saying, I am serious about a better ASLO.

Thanks,
Sam

Sugar 0.100 features on Sugar 0.102 build

Hello

I'm trying to create a custo
mized image based on Sugar 0.102, ​
with features of Sugar 0.100
​ ​
[0][1]

This is what i'm using:
- OS Builder forked from https://github.com/sugarlabs/olpc-os-builder, branch SL102
- No gnome, just sugar

But i have some problems, for example:
-> Icon Change activity, failed to start, here is the log
​ ​
[2]
-> When i try to test the multiple home views, they are not present after restart Sugar, this is what i type at Terminal activity
as regular user:

gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/view_icons --type list --list-type string ['view-radial','view-radial']
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/view_favorites --type list --list-type string ['emblem-favorite','emblem-favorite']
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/sugar/desktop/favorite_names --type list --list-type string ['Home View','Student View']
reboot

[0]http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/Icon_Change
[1]http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Features/Multiple_home_views
[2] http://pastebin.com/qDqxkuU0

Thanks for your help

Distance activity does not work on XO 1.75

Summary: Distance-34 on XO-1.75 does not work due to a kernel bug that
stops audio recording when audio playback begins.

Good, we are agreed on the problem.

Yes, I see that too.

The activity records from the microphone while playing a noise burst
through the speakers of each laptop.  On XO-1.75 only, the recording
hangs when the noise burst is played.

It can be reproduced without the activity by using two Terminal
commands;

	arecord --duration=10 record.wav &
	aplay play.wav

The record.wav file will stop growing at the instant the playback
begins, and eventually an error will appear:

	arecord: pcm_read:1828: read error: Input/output error

This proves it is not the activity at fault.

The underlying cause is a flaw in the driver for the Audio Synchronous
Serial Port [1], which is inside the XO-1.75 CPU and connects over an
I2S [2] bus to the Audio codec chip.

The driver sound/soc/mmp/mmp2-i2s.c pays no attention to the existing
capture stream when it is asked to start the playback stream, and the
actions it takes to set up the playback stream break the capture
stream.

Some fixes tried today, but there seemed to be no easy solution.  It
is fixed in a later kernel, in the source file
sound/soc/pxa/mmp-sspa.c, but an estimate for backport is not
available.

This is tracked as ticket #11596 [3].

That would be nice.

Thanks.

Meanwhile, I suggest you remove the activity from the XO-1.75s.

jita.sugarlabs.org?

G'day,

Daniel Narvaez prepared Sugar packages and docker builder
infrastructure [1] back in May.  (Thanks!)

The .ini file for olpc-os-builder [2] points to
http://jita.sugarlabs.org:3000/out/fedora-20-armhfp/ but this no
longer responds; ECONNREFUSED on 18.85.44.69 port 3000.

Are the packages available anywhere else?

[Sugar Devel] Sugar-datastore build problem

Hi

While building sugar-datastore module using Python3 , i seem to be getting this error:

checking for headers required to compile python extensions... not found
configure: error: could not find Python headers

Searching it on google, I found out that python3-devel needs to be installed.
I already installed python3-devel on my machine and the sugar-build-broot , I also included python3-devel in root.json but i am still getting the same error.
Am I missing something here?
Any help would be appreciated.

I have attached my osbuild.log (ignore all the poop)

Thanks

Hi,

I'm doing some customization and trying to generate a new one Image of
Sugar 100.

I'm using  v7.0 of obb.

The procdeure finished with the following error:

One detail, is that i'm using NFS instead USB driver.


Any idea what is wrong here ?

Thanks.

Gustavo.

You need have a ext3/4 filesystem mounted, not NFS.
