Ha... I keep poking it maybe not often enough :-(
My XO is OLPC 1C2, OpenFirmware Q4D24 and SKU228.
As for moodle registration I try again to see if itis consistent and will file if it indeed a bug - lately having been messing up the XO with a XO 0.7 installation.
Also tried startx into gnome (any way to get back to Sugar?) and reconnect to another wireless internet connection and hence was able to change my internet connection. Now need to see if hardwire connection to the internet will work :-)

>> Great work. I installed the XSCE on a Class 10 SD card today to run on a XO1.75. Still get a blank screen towards the end of the installation. Connection seems working well so far. Manage to connect a bunch of XO to test. Tested two registration and was able to autologin to Moodle on OS 12.1.0 but not on a 13.1.0.
