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.
