Hi, I can start the emulation, and started linux, with the tipical messages "Welcome to Fedora" and the [OK] , but after all of that, when I should enter to the Sugar and the message asking me for a name should appear, I recive a white screen with nothing. I downloaded the last version of OLPC image. Do you know what is happening? I have a Intel Celeron 2 (900 Mhz), with 256MB RAM, and 32 MB of video (not accelerator).

Thanks

Are you sure you waited long enough? It sounds like your system would struggle to emulate the XO, as it has even less memory than the XO, once you account for emulation and operating system overhead. My system is 2.6Ghz with 2Gb of RAM, and it still takes about 90 seconds to get through the text-mode boot-up and about 15 additional seconds to get from the white screen to the donut/icons. It's also possible that your screen is too low-res or doesn't support a window large enough to display the XO's graphic mode, which is 1200x900 (although it can be less in emulation). I'm using qemu, not VirtualBox, so it may also be a VirtualBox-specific problem, but this seems unlikely. —Joe 00:38, 9 December 2007 (EST)

Resolution Problems

I'm running Virtualbox on Ubuntu 8.10; when I load Sugar, the screen is too large for my display and I can't seem to adjust it. Any thoughts? --Blackboard 15:44, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Test os802 Build - VirtualBox

No dice - converting image using convertdd results in VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER, will try build 708 as suggested at Solution Grove
