Thanks to the tireless efforts of Teapot, we now have Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid optimized for the XO laptop! Teapot designed this release to be reliable and consistent with these modifications:
* Kernel is from OLPC release 8.2.0. USB boot fix in ramdisk is the only change that was applied to OLPC-distributed files.
* Ubuntu packages are properly identified as manually/automatically installed for easier customization, patched files are diverted, so package manager won't replace them on upgrades.
* Network Manager 0.7 is in Intrepid -- there is no need for custom repositories.
