Description

Hello,

I installed Sugar On a Stick 64-bit version (as dual boot) from https://spins.fedoraproject.org/soas/download/index.html, on my Asus E200HA laptop. The installation was successful, however, anytime I try to open Physics activity, I get the error message 'Physics failed to start'.

Any help in solving this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Fedora 25 SoaS wasn't tested before release, and contains Physics-26, though if installed on disk a later version is available as an update from Fedora.

Even so, Physics-26 and later fails with an error that mentions RAND_LIMIT_swigconstant, which you can see using the Log activity.

I've fixed the error, but a new release of Physics with the fix is not yet available. You might test the development branch by starting Terminal and typing

rm -rf Activities/Physics.activity
git clone https://github.com/sugarlabs/physics.git Activities/Physics.activity

This works for me on Fedora 26.

Hope that helps.
