Configure an Activity to start at boot time.

Hey guys,

I need run a graphic application at every start. As this app require graphics resources, it should be started after sugar-session start.

The question is, which place is better to start this app ? 

I know that,  if add that on sugar-session, it works fine, but I don't sure  is it the best place to do that kind of things.


Thanks in advance.

Gustavo.

Announcing the development of OLPC OS 14.1.0

Announcing our next release cycle:

http://wiki.laptop.org/go/14.1.0

Our goal is to combine Fedora 20 with Sugar 0.102, on XO-1.75, and
with dual-core and OpenGL support on XO-4.

An early development signed build for XO-4 is available, build #2:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/14.1.0

Several problems have been identified and ticketed already:
http://dev.laptop.org/report/51

The most significant are:

- many keyboard and front panel keys do not respond correctly,

- the Write activity and GNOME are missing, because they don't work,

- ad-hoc networks may be partitioned when they should coalesce.

Test reports are welcome on devel <at> lists.laptop.org thanks.

We encourage community developers to use our olpc-os-builder
repository to publish XO-1 and XO-1.5 builds of Fedora 20 with Sugar
0.102, and we can offer advice on that via the mailing lists.

Fedora 20 XO-4 ad-hoc partitioning, failure of IBSS coalesce

When this is happening, wireshark shows ad-hoc beacons have;

- same BSS ID,
- two different sequence number ranges,
- two different timestamp ranges,
- two different HT capabilities and HT information fields,

The wireless firmware should coalesce separate networks if they are
compatible.  The different HT capabilities and information fields are
preventing this.

Since we haven't changed kernel, this is either Network Manager or
Sugar.

On Fedora 18, the card is commanded to scan for the SSID before it is
commanded to join the IBSS, and the BSS ID of an existing network may
be used in the join.

On Fedora 20, the card is only commanded to join an IBSS by SSID,
there is no command to scan immediately prior, so the join command
does not have the existing BSS ID.  This contributes to the
partitioning; assuming also a bug in kernel or firmware that fails to
set HT capabilities and information fields reliably.

Has anyone reproduced this on Sugar 0.102 with Fedora 18?
