OLPC-XO

This page is devoted to getting Myro running on the OLPC XO laptop.

The hardest bit was getting bluetooth working on the laptop. I used the cellink USB bluetooth adapter which I have used on Ubuntu previously. The kernel drivers for bluetooth aren’t provided and had to be compiled separately. After fighting with git to get the olpc kernel sources, this was pretty easy. We also have to compile a program (passkey_agent) to authenticate (send the bluetooth PIN) to the fluke. The normal gnome bluetooth applet that fedora 6 (which the OLPC OS is based on) uses won’t work on the XO. The bluetooth binaries for the OLPC can be downloaded here:
