Boot up and Register

[note] Re-registering always increases the entries in the jabber roster.

Setup:

  1. Every XO has to run the same build (Update.1 RC1) and firmware (q2d09).
  2. Remove network manager and config file:
    • In the Terminal activity, type
      cd .sugar/default/
      rm nm/networks.cfg
      rm config
  3. Reboot the XO.
  4. Make sure the school server is running.

Actions:

  1. Reboot the XO again (in the presence of the school server).
  2. Click on the "Register" option when mouse over the XO guy in the center of Home View.
  3. Reboot the XO (in the presence of the school server).

Verify:

  • All XOs are connected to the school server.
    • In Home View, the connection indicator next to the battery icon should read "Connected to a School Mesh Portal".
    • Alternatively, type olpc-netstatus in the Terminal activity (might have to become root), one should see
Telepathy : gabble
Jabber    : schoolserver.laptop.org
  • All XOs register properly with the school server.
    • Mouse over the XO guy in the center of Home View, and the "Register" option should no longer be available.

Network Melt Down in Gabble(?)

Setup:

  1. Turn off the school server.
  2. Remove network manager:
    • In the Terminal activity, type
      rm .sugar/default/nm/networks.cfg
  3. Boot up the XO, and it should connect to Simple Mesh 1
    • In the Terminal activity, type olpc-netstatus (might have to become root) to ensure every XO shows Telepathy : salut
  4. Suspend the machine by pressing the power button
    • The power indicator LED should be blinking in suspend mode.

Actions:

  1. Turn on school server, and ensure it's running.
  2. Unsuspend the XO by pressing the power button again.

Verify:

  • Within 10 minutes or so, the XO should connect to the School Server Mesh.
    • In Home View, the connection indicator next to the battery icon should read "Connected to a School Mesh Portal".

RF Saturation (salut/local link scaling test?)

This is designed to understand whether the XOs affect other regular laptops connected to wireless network. Ticket #5527

Setup:

  1. On each XO, remove network manager:
    • In the Terminal activity, type
      rm .sugar/default/nm/networks.cfg
  2. Shut down the school server.

Actions:

  1. Turn on school server.
  2. On a regular laptop, connect to infrastructure network (i.e. regular wireless access point).

Verify:

  • The wireless network connection of the regular laptops are not affected by the XOs.
