Yup, Firefox and a couple of library/collections.  I've done
olpc-upgrade for years since I got my XO-1 in 2007 G1G1, and as I
mentioned one upgrade (I think to 10.1.2) resulted in me getting the
expanded XO-1.5 set of activities until I or the system (I can't
remember which) switched my activity group to G1G1Lite.

111MB available.

As above.

Is there a guide somewhere to debugging Sugar on OLPC/XO?  I'm used to
gdb and know basic Python syntax, but I if there isn't a smoking gun
in a log file the only way I know to debug Sugar code is to root
around files in /usr/lib/python2.6/sige-packages/{sugar,jarabe} stick
print lines in likely functions, and just rerun until something
meaningful appears.  Surely there's a better way!

Thanks and cheers,
