I got one of the original G1G1 OLPCs along with 4 other friends. At first we used and tested them. Then mine sat on shelf until recently when my niece asked if she could have it and I was glad to say yes. First I needed to update it from Build 656 to 802. That went well and was glad to see the new format and features. I specially liked the Speak activity and thought she would really like this.
However, she asked if she could use Skype on the OLPC. After some research I found the steps to load Skype. I did the wget of getskype-linux-beta-fc10 and ran the yum localinstall command. This was not successful. I then noticed some of the activities had problems starting, Speak being one.
So, I used the gamepad O and start procedure to go back to Build 656 which worked. I then again upgraded to 802. This went well but Speak still will not start. Everything else seems to work.
Should I do clean install (not an upgrade) of 802 and hope Speak will work again?
Any help will be much appreciated
