OLPC weekly update 29/07

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Quick summary of my OLPC work over the last two weeks:

OLPC weekly update 15/07

Friday, July 15th, 2011
  • 11.2.0 release management and testing
  • Briefly looked into problems and the way it inversely affects Sugar, without fruitful results, but determined that this is a non-critical corner case.
  • With help from Ed, found a new SD8686 wireless firmware for testing in the next cycle.
  • Some work on the kernel upstreaming front: input power management, recent libertas work.

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

OLPC weekly update 01/07

  • 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
