Re: Announcing Fedora Sugar Spin!

Hi everybody,

I'm proud to be announce the availability of our Fedora Sugar Spin, which incorporates the Sugar Desktop Environment on a Fedora Live CD.

So, what is this in specific? With this spin, you'll be able to run Sugar, which is developed by Sugarlabs and the desktop environment used on the OLPC, directly from a Live CD! You'll find several activities on the image including most notably...

* sugar-browse - a web browsing activity based on xulrunner
* sugar-write - a word processor based on abiword

...among with several other applications introducing e.g. chat support.

We, the OLPC SIG, will be importing further activities into Fedora, which might be installed using 'yum install sugar-*' at a later time.

Where can you get it? Easily, here:

   http://sdz.fedorapeople.org/olpc/sugar-spin.iso

Okay, this link is now highly obsolete!

Please don't use it or link to it anymore. The image there has been removed, since it has a new home. You'll find it at it's new location, which is here:

http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/olpc/0.82/i686/sugar-spin.iso

Here's the SHA1 checksum, just if you're interested:

   f032ab45aa116c2728dcd2d676e29a5ee114fd1d  sugar-spin.iso

And what if you wanted to put it quickly onto your USB Key? Even easier! You'll just need to grab Luke Macken's liveusb-creator, which already includes support for the Sugar Spin. Here's the link:

https://fedorahosted.org/releases/l/i/liveusb-creator/liveusb-creator-3.0.zip

The liveusb-creator link to the Sugar Spin is still the old one, so you'll need to download the image manually from the new location above, until this gets fixed. We're working on it!

Thank you everybody, who made this possible!

Again, thanks!
