testing the OLPC os (sugar) in Fedora 7 using qemu


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
