I encorporated the line chmod 4755 /bin/ping into asroot, rezipped, and uploaded to http://download.unleashkids.org/HaitiOS/TC-libertas-patch2.zip.

Subject: [UKids] Server Backup on HaitiOS

Tim discovered that backups to the XSCE in release 5.0 were failing.  I had changed ds-backup-server to use the WSGI interface (mod_python was obsoleted in FC18). So I assumed  that the ball was in my court. But I believe the test just completed indicates that the problem was really that the superuser bit in /bin/ping was removed in FC17 (the base for HaitiOS). 

The test:
  1.. Load OS13.2.0 on an XO4. 

  2.. Install XSCE release 5.0 on top of that -- installs ds-backup-server hash c5d86 (unchanged from XSCE-0.4)

  3.. Load HaitiOS hash 6d78 on an XO1

  4.. Register XO1 to server

  5.. Wait for 2 hours -- observe no data in directory at /library/user/SHC....

  6.. execute "chmod 4755 /bin/ping" on the XO1

  7.. Wait for 1 hour -- observe that the backup had occurred

I think the wifi fixup that Tim has prepared for Sora to take to Haiti should include the change in permissions on /bin/pin.  

I do remember that, in the Tiny Core environment, it is hard to find the file that I wanted to change (because I don't have a clear idea of the disk tree, before the chroot that the firmware does as it is bringing up the XO.
