Just random info

Postby phigan » Fri Dec 21, 2007 3:05 am

Here's some random info that is probably already in the Wiki in different places but it's still stuff that people have questions about. I'll try to keep this updated as I find things worth noting.

Skype 1.x (audio only) works (for Fedora 7)

Opera from http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Opera works, but the Opera-activity does not as it is out of date.

Stuff downloaded to Journal is stored in /home/olpc/.sugar/default/datastore/store and some other files are in /home/olpc/.sugar/default/data

As of this post, Joyride build 1431 seems most stable, but still has the wep key problem (for me).

When in debian, the hardware keys no longer work. As a workaround, you could bind them to things like:
echo 0 > /sys/class/backlight/dcon-bl/brightness
echo 15 > /sys/class/backlight/dcon-bl/brightnes
I believe there is also one for volume, but I'm not able to find it right now (plus I don't have the debian update installed). Check 'find /sys/class | grep -i volu'.

Some RPM repos:
