Start-up

Actions

  1. Boot the laptop
  2. Connect to a school server mesh, open AP, WEP (canopy, Ascii 'xoxoxoxoxoxox'), and WPA (olpc, 'xoxoxoxo') access point

Verify

  • If in secure mode: the laptop shows pretty boot (only with stable builds)
  • The laptop boots into sugar
  • The journal loads
  • The laptop connects to one of the following (whichever one is highest on the list and available to the laptop)
    • A school server - If there is a school server present, the laptop MUST be tested against the school server. If it cannot connect to the school server, that is a major failure.
    • A preferred AP
    • An MPP
    • A local mesh
  • The XO should connect properly to a WEP or WPA enabled AP

Trying different Connection Types

School Server

(this requires being in a location close enough to a school server)

Actions

  1. The laptop should boot up and connect to the school server by default if you are near one.
  2. If you don't want to reboot to connect, click on the Mesh Network Channel, which the school server is on, in the mesh view.
  3. Wait for the inner part of the circle to stop blinking, and the outer part to start connecting (testing 8.2 just hover your cursor to ensure connection).
    • This means it has connected to that portal point.
    1. To check your connection, go to terminal one. (ctrl alt mesh)
    2. At the login, type "root", and then type olpc-netstatus. (for newer build, type "olpc" instead of "root")
    3. Note whether the result of Telepathy is salut or gabble.
  4. Go to the mesh view (ctrl alt home and then mesh)
  5. Note the XO's you see. Are they laptops around you, or ones most likely beyond the reach of the laptops wi-fi.
  6. Do the same with a second or third laptop to ensure that it's in the same configuration.

Verify

  • The laptop connects to the school server by default after reboot.
  • (alternatively) The laptop connects to the school server if you click on its portal point in the mesh view.
  • The result of running olpc-netstatus is:
    • IP msh0 :
      • 172.x.x.x(172.18.x.x when connected to the School server in OLPC offices)
      • 192.168.x.x
      • 10.x.x.x
    • Config : School server
    • Telepathy :
      • salut (means failure to connect to a jabber server
      • gabble (then the result of Jabber is : {name of jabber server you're connected to}
  • If you're running salut, you only see laptops that are around you and also connected to the same server.
  • If you're running gabble, you see laptops connected to the same jabber server.
  • NOTE: laptops running gabble cannot see laptops running salut and vise-versa.

Filling up the Journal

(OPTIONAL: can take a long time. Once a script is written to fill up the journal, this test will be easier to do)

Actions

  1. Take many pictures with the Record Activity.
  2. Add the picture that's on the clipboard many times to the journal.

    • Maybe five or six times
    • Wait for the laptop to come out of suspend each time before closing it again.
