Subject description: Received my OLPC XO laptop yesterday
 

Just a quick update: My XO was delivered at 3PM yesterday. I only had a couple of hours to play around with it, but it seems geeky cool so far.

I can confirm my assertion that running PuppyOS on this beast would be WAY COOL. I read some talk about putting Debian on the OX and where someone tried Pepper unsuccessfully on their XO.

Regards
Ron

The XO software is being discussed here (in relation to Puppy, that is):

I am new somewhat new to linux and I recently received a OLPC laptop for x-mas. I have used linux before and have put it one an old computer and an Ipod and now I wish to put it on this OLPC laptop. I think it would be neat to have Puppy linux on the little laptop because face it this is designed ranges 10 and under... not that I am old but still haha

PLEASE make a version that will work on the little computers. I believe the Puppy community will greatly appreciate and enjoy it.

Thank you,
Jake

Alright, I've got my XO.

I absolutely love the hardware, even the tiny keyboard didn't bother me after long. But I hate most of the software.

The problem is, how to put Puppy on there and retain the functionality of the hardware. Here's some people experimenting with that very issue with XCFE, and some of their ad-hoc solutions.

http://olpcnews.com/forum/index.php?topic=592.0

What I want is to have puppy as my core, but still be able to use all the special features of the hardware (the automatic wireless, the camera built in, and the brightness adjuster). I do not have the skills myself to do this currently, but I'd like to use this as a springboard to learn them.

so lets break it down into solvable problems. First off, what, if anything, prevents us from booting puppy from a USB?

Answer: Access to the machine!

Barry could be lucky enough to receive one XO, see this discussion:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22607&start=15
(Some notes about booting the XO are also there.)

I will welcome one if someone from North America sends it my way (I promise to give it to a young teacher after testing it.) My PM is just a click away below. Smile

Well I have mine, but I'm not parting with it. If anyone interested happens to live close by I'm more than willing to get together to tinker on it. I've got the machine but not the skills. I'd be willing to pair with someone who's in the opposite position.

Here's some people already working on it on OLPC news forums.
