Testing Summary: Auckland - 21 August 2010
Who: Calvin, Fabiana, Nevyn, Robin, Tabitha, Tom
XO-1.5 testing os373pyg
Physics - created several motors that didn't turn until one was dragged,
which triggered them all to start. There were about 100 items in the
activity screen. Otherwise, Physics ran well.
Write - great, tested tables and pictures and formatting changes, all
worked, though it would be good to be able to anchor the picture. Tested
collaboration on XO created network with two XOs.
Record - could create audio, pictures and video files, but playing audio
file from Journal opened Jukebox and gave an error message - ticket
Jukebox - could not play audio file created in Record, see ticket 2202
Speak - concerned about the content. The robot strongly believes in
Christianity. We were quite concerned by its views on homosexuality, murder,
and other acts. About the best response we got was when it told you to go
ask Lucy, Simon, or Elvis. Are the laptops being deployed in any countries
that are strongly not Christian? It quoted the bible a few times which could
cause issues. Where it picks an answer from a pool of potential answers, it
could cause offense as it changes between yes, no and maybe.
Finance - great
Measure - okay. Rising / falling edge matches both rising and falling edge.
Raised ticket http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2203. An addition to this
activity would be the addition of a freeform measure tool so you can
accurately measure the wave form.
Typing turtle - great
Visual match - very challenging for a Saturday morning, but all seemed to
Turtleart - great
Scratch - great
eToys - got lost but user impatience, nothing wrong with the activity
Paint - great
Colors - great
Memorize - great, but did have an issue with resetting touchpad - it would
think I was giving it commands for the game
Words game - can only translate from English to other languages. We wanted
to translate from Spanish to English - as this is a Paraguay build.
Does not update translation when you switch languages.
Also got some strange characters in the translation. Words displays
incorrect translation for words that are not in the dictionary.
Italian translation of Mast in Words displayed incorrectly.
Also http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2214 and
Abacus - great
Labyrinth - great
Read - page up / down game keys don't work -
Tamtam mini - great
Tamtam jam - great
Stopwatch - great
Implode - great
Arithmetic - great
Terminal - great
Chat - two XOs on local wireless network successfully used chat
Distance - two XOs on local wireless network successfully used distance,
wasn't too bad with interference either actually (music in bar)
Rotate key on XO-1.0 - messes up the view in every activity - poor layout
and graphics corruption. http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2205
Rotate key on XO-1.5 - doesnt work at all in any activity.
It would be useful if when you stop an activity there was an option to not
keep what you were doing, instead of being forced to keep.
There was no mesh network in this build?
Tickets raised today relating to this testing session:
http://bugs.sugarlabs.org/ticket/2209 - os373pyg on XO-1.0 shows linux
startup messages rather than sugar splashscreen
Also discussed Software Freedom Day - we now have a confirmed venue. 18
September 10am - 4pm. Orion Cafe, cnr Mary and Enfield St, Mt Eden.
