the error message more in lenght ( don t mind typos, i just copy-pasted the original text in the xo there so this is not a factor):
wget -P security https://activation/laptop/org.devkey/xg ... evelop.sig
resolving of host name >>activation/laptop/org.devkey<< ... failed. name or service not known.
wget: cannot resolve host adress >>activation/laptop/org<<
so i am altering my guess towards the location of the problem more in direction of the server and osi4 or 5; could it be the server cannot be reached out of areas where no actual deployment took place so i should try and use a us-proxy or so ?
The olpc was a one like of the give one get one programm, got it as a permanent lending of a olpc representative like 9 months ago and it should be of the then-recent production run and "bone-stock" settings.
