I am getting a grey screen on the two computers I've tried it on.

FWIW: It's booting fine here on a Mac using Sun's VirtualBox, haven't
done much more than boot it and run a few Activities yet.


Hangs for me in VMWare Fusion right after loading initrd, does not continue to boot nor start X. Previous image worked fine.

Hi all,

thanks for giving this a try so quickly! Well, I just burnt it on a CD and gave it a try. It worked quite well here, so I got a graphical screen and was able to use most of the activities.

I'm not sure what might be the reason for the issues you're encountering, but I tend to see Rawhide again as the cause.

I also get a gray screen for some seconds after the Fedora progress bar disappeared, but then the mouse cursor appears. Hmm...

Hi folks,

there's another new - though, completely untested - snapshot of soas-2
ready and waiting for you here:


A log file from the build process has been posted, too:


So what is new?

* most activities have been updated to their latest version
* sugar-update-control is now included - thanks to SMParrish
* etoys, speak and read activity should now really be on it ;)
* keyboard layout changes should be possible via system-config-
* the soas version information has been incorporated correctly

Concerning the last point: When booting the image, you should see a
screen with the Fedora wallpaper for one second - press escape here
you should get to the boot menu, where you'll see the image's name.

By the way, Fedora 11 (on which SoaS-2 is based) has entered beta
freeze: So quite some packages won't be changing for now, but with the
upcoming snapshots - as Rawhide progresses - it should stabilize more.

Well, that's it so far. As always, please report any issues you
encounter. Thanks and happy testing!

  --Your SoaS Team
