I have a G1G1 XO-1. I upgraded my firmware to q2e41, then used the nand-flash method to install OS10. (Earlier attempts were not so fruitful, but I eventually figured out how to format the usb thumbdrive as FAT16 in Mac OS X "Snow Leopard," and that made things much better.)

Then I did "yum update" and let it update whatever it wanted. Then I did the Software Update control panel. Then I did the testing below.

Here's the "about" after all of this update fever:

I haven't used Gnome. It seems to boot reliably into Sugar.

"Record" crashes on launch.

I think I tried all the activities that came with, and they all work pretty well except for Record. Some have visual aberrations in the "Activity"/"Edit" etc tabs. Also, many do not show the "Stop Sign" icon, but show a weensy menu instead.

sudo, then yum update succeeded well.

Yes, quite well.

Closing lid to sleep, opening lid to wake seems to work fine, with the exception of the trackpad. Once any sleep activity happens, the trackpad no longer causes the pointer to move. I am not sure if trackpad activity can wake the computer, but it certainly cannot move the pointer.

I did see some odd behavior when I just left it sitting there -- The screen would dim after a while, and then the screen would brighten back up, as if it were trying to go to sleep but something was waking it up.

Let me know what else I can do to help.
