Recommended Posts

the OLPC is soon ready (november timeframe) and you can test it yourself by doing as follows:-


in Fedora 7 do as follows:-


first install qemu as root,


su -
yum install qemu


and now as normal user, get the os by doing this


wget http://olpc.download.redhat.com/olpc/streams/development/LATEST/devel_ext3/olpc-redhat-stream-development-devel_ext3.img.bz2


(175mb or so)


then extract it to an img file


bzcat olpc-redhat-stream-development-devel_ext3.img.bz2 > laptop.img


then mount it in qemu


qemu -soundhw es1370 -serial `tty` -net user -net nic,model=rtl8139 -hda laptop.img


here's some screenshots of it in action using the web-browser
