OLPC weekly update 08/07

In between some difficulties moving house, here is a summary of the OLPC work I’ve completed this week:

  • Completed diagnosis of the latest libertas resume hang, developed a workaround which seems to be working.
  • The previously discussed kernel power management patches have been accepted upstream into the x86 tree.
  • 11.2.0 release – testing, release notes, new candidate build

  • Fixed Sugar’s HTTP file transfer collaboration mechanism which stopped working with the move to Python 2.7
  • Continued painful debugging of the libertas driver hang
  • Fixed a bug where the boot partition was not mounted on boot after activation
  • 11.2.0 release work and testing
  • 11 of the XO-1 and XO-1.5 power management kernel patches that I was previously working on were accepted by Andrew Morton, one step closer to them being included upstream
  • Took a couple of steps further on the SD/MMC runtime power management front in the upstream kernel
