653. The upgrade went fine, but the computer still shuts down the
instant I remove the power cord (or simply unplug the power cord from
Now, when I try to turn the computer on without the cord
plugged in, I at least get the power light turning green and the the
battery light blinking orange before everything goes dark
...(after ~5 minutes)
When I unplugged the cord, the XO turned off immediately.
Any suggestions as to what might be going on or what to do about it? I'm thinking of following the directions for the Activated Upgrade (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activated_Upgrade) to build 653 just to see if that helps, but I'm worried about just adding confusion to the situation.
The EC thinks your battery is fully charged and so its not
Do you have a developer key? If not get one. You will
need it to use
batman.fth and thats what we are going to use to reset your
SOC so it
will try to charge.

I started getting the same error messages as I did when it couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t find the battery (because it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t inserted)

Once I get the log files in the olpc users home directory, how do access them (for
including in an e-mail) or copy them to the USB?
From the command line you use the 'cp' command.
Sugar mounts USB
sticks in the /media/<number> where <number> is
derived from the USB disk.
so you can stick a usb disk in the XO and after it shows up
journal open up a terminal and type 'ls /media' you
should see a
directory with numbers. Thats the USB disk.
so 'cp /home/olpc/log-* /media/<number> will copy
all the files that
start with 'log-' to the usb disk.
Then you can use the journal to unmount the disk.
That SO needs to be in an easily searchable FAQ!!! It worked like charm!! Here's what I got...
