So, I've tried using hyperactivity a few different ways.

Case 1: XOs are in mesh. olpc-netstatus says Telepathy is using salut.
Running 'python hyperactivity.py salut 10 30' shows a bunch of XOs in the
neighborhood and shows activity in the terminal about creating tubes,
creating activities etc.

Case 2: XOs are connected to a school server and olpc-netstatus says
Telepathy is using gabble. Running 'python hyperactivity.py gabble
schoolserver.augusttown.uwimona.edu.jm 10 30' creates 10 accounts, but keeps
saying that could not connect and it needs to remove an account. Then it
gets stuck in some from of a loop and keeps spewing error messages.

The other thing that's not clear from the readme is how to create a new
gabble session. From the readme:


It's generally a good idea to run a new Gabble/Salut instance with

In a first console launch:
$ eval `dbus-launch --sh-syntax`

Then get the address of the new bus

You can now launch Gabble or Salut in this console.

In a second console, define the DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS variable before
launch hyperactivity.
$ export


I'm not sure how one launches Gabble or Salut in the console.
Clarifications much appreciated. Will put up a wiki page once I figure it
