The preferred short answer seems to be NO. But if an Activity
(application) *does* need something to be put into the operating
system, should the "Sugar environment" provide a way to add that ?
A benefit (to people who manipulate their systems) of putting add-on
Activities into /home/olpc was to make them independent of an
'olpc-update' which replaced the operating system. One solution to
the problem above would be to create TWO packages, one (.xo) to
install the user-permissions material (done once), and the second
(.rpm ?) to install the system modifications (done every time the
system is replaced). [Etoys already supplies two such packages.]
An RPM is static, and platform/version dependent. Ought the "Sugar
environment" provide an "intelligent" facility which would
'hook/unhook' drivers [and objects on removable devices] into the
running system (e.g., to add/remove "Sugar Activities") ?
