Day 1 – Project underway

Posted on June 15th, 2009 by Andy Garbett

The project is now officially underway and i have spent some time today looking to the One Laptop Per Child website ( and also the Sugar + Ubuntu packages available.

I’ve taken the time to read up on James Munroe’s blog and the previous CODEX project and have noticed that the previous  CODEX project worked towards creating the live CD using Xubuntu – a lighter version of its original counterpart.

Within this project Karl and I are hoping to do the following;

  • Research into the effective release cycle of both the ubuntu/sugar interface
  • Create a bootable USB pendrive version of the ubuntu/sugar combination
  • Create a report based upon our findings

Today we have covered the following;

  • James Munro’s blog
  • Downloaded virtual machine and ran Jame’s Live! CD
  • Utilised the Sugar emulator – and got stuck inside an emulator, inside of another emulator
  • Read up on some Pen Drive  options available out there (see links)
  • Spoken to a member of the sugar team about a possible .exe installer for a combined sugar/Ubuntu package

The main idea behind the new USB pen drive sugar/Ubuntu combination is that it can be easily distributed to students of the university of Lincoln. With this in mind im hoping to create an exe that users of Windows operating systems can automatically install/copy over the Xubuntu ISO which has all sugar emulator software / useful apps preinstalled. This ensure that students will not be deterred from trying the idea of a new operating system.

    I am very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
