 I didn't realize that olpc-install would run automatically. 

The wiki instructions explicitly say that it needs to be run at the
command prompt.

Maybe we should fix the wiki.

That is odd. 163 is an auto-installer, and it seems to be working

That is SELinux stuff, which we are not using.

olpc-install should be triggered automatically. Something must have gone

and attach /var/log/messages , /var/log/anaconda.log and
