Activity Won't Start Because datastore-service Crashes

Postby gypsymoth » Mon Feb 08, 2010 6:38 pm

Recently, I've devised a way to remotely manage my daughter's OLPC XO and expanding the storage space with the SD Card slot without eating up the internal memory. However, with the method I devised, activities won't start on the OLPC XO, because, for some reason, "python /usr/bin/datastore-service" segfaults soon after boot up. If I take the 4GB EXT3 SD Card out of the slot, then the OLPC XO boots and works fine.

The details to the error is shown in this thread on my web site:

The details on how I set-up the SD Card is in this thread:

The details on how I set-up my remote sudo account on this SD Card is detailed in this thread:

Would anyone help me shed some light on this problem? The remote account works really well to help manage my daughter's laptop. And I really don't want to eat up the 1GB internal memory, which is already strained. Thanks.

Chieh

I found that this is only a problem with EXT3. EXT2 doesn't cause this problem. So I will go with EXT2 for now. I've filed a bug here: http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/10019
