Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Optimized for XO Laptop

Filed under
OLPC
Ubuntu

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.
