this may be a problem beyond soas. I am having the same problem with 0.83.x on Ubuntu. (Not in the emulator, but when I login into a Sugar session.) I'll try to investigate today.

Strange, it works here. Are you able to reproduce it? Do you have a LiveOS/overlay... file on your usb stick? When you reboot, do you still have a /home/liveuser/.sugar directory?

yes its repeatable on the same stick. Do you want me to make a new stick from the same ISO and see if I have the same results?

How would I check wethe I have a /home/liveuser/.sugar.

It dumps me into the put in your name, choose your color wizard which I assume would create it before I would be able to open a terminal to look for it.

I'm on IRC now if your around to debug.

I've been away from irc these days while in vacation. I will be back as usual tomorrow.

You can press "ctrl+alt+f1" to get to a text console, without getting into sugar. Login as "liveuser" there.

Also can you open the stick from windows and check if you have a LiveOS/overlay... file?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

Debugged in irc and we found out that Caroline was incorrectly flashing the image. She also fixed the wiki instructions now.
