I updated from 8.2.0 build 767 to staging-27 with
`sudo -v -v -v olpc-update staging-27`
and it all went very smoothly!
IMO, the expired http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Friends_in_testing/banner
should be updated to staging-27 from staging-25
* Restart from Home view worked (sometimes I have to go into a console
and press keys to complete shutdown, but not this time)
* Two startup chimes (I assume one was installing the new firmware)
* By the time I allowed Software update to run I was connected to my
wireless access point (with WEP security).
* Software update offered no new activities (I had ran it the day before
on build 767).
Build : 27
Firmware : CL1 Q2E30 Q2E
Libertas : 5.110.22.p23
Medium serious bugs
Build '27' is confusing, especially when "About my XO" doesn't show your
release or stream (Trac 8260). I updated the "What release am I
running?" wiki page to mention this stream.
In Sugar control panel > Language, "Swedish (Sweden)" was highlighted!
Sure enough, in the bash shell, LANG is set to sv_SE.utf8. I'm pretty
sure I never chose that, and other settings like Date & Time were
unchanged. Has anyone else noticed Language changing?
Why didn't Software update install the newer Browse (v.101 ?) that
according to http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/8.2.1#Bug_fixes
ticket #9112 Enable Browse to embed PDF files in itself
A few minor things
I see a [Discard network history] button in the Network panel, I didn't
notice this before but I think it was in 8.2.0. The 8.2.0 manual
In the Home view ring view, when I hide the frame (by moving away from a
corner or pressing the Frame key), the very edge of the frame flickers
white a few times. I didn't notice this before.
Please please create Trac version "Build 767 (8.2.0)" (Trac bug 8904).
