-
This page will help you get a look at the XO software, by running a "virtual XO" in an emulator.
+
-
Another option is burning a [[LiveCd]].
+
-
 
+
-
== What to expect ==
+
-
 
+
-
This "virtual XO" was created as a software development tool.  It is not intended for general use, and many things will not work.  It is "just to get a taste" (and to help software developers).  With time and people constraints, we are focused tightly on the real XO.
+
-
 
+
-
*The camera and video will not work.
+
-
*Things are slower than on the actual machine.  If you are unable to install qemu's kqemu accelerator, very much slower.
+
-
*You will see a snapshot of the past.  The instructions will have you download the "latest stable build", which is sometimes quite a few weeks old.  Development is very rapid.  So things will be missing or different compared with the present.
+
-
*While rapidly maturing, this is still "alpha" software.
+
-
*TamTam, the popular music program, will likely not work (no sound).
+
-
 
+
-
== Two steps ==
+
-
 
+
-
First, download [http://olpc.download.redhat.com/olpc/streams/development/LATEST-STABLE-BUILD/ext3/olpc-redhat-stream-development-ext3.img.bz2 olpc-redhat-stream-development-ext3.img.bz2].  It is in [http://olpc.download.redhat.com/olpc/streams/development/LATEST-STABLE-BUILD/ext3/ this directory].
+
-
 
+
-
Second, get the qemu emulator which will run the image:
+
-
*[[Using QEMU on Windows XP|Windows]]
+
-
*[[Emulating the XO/Quick Start/Mac|Mac]]
+
-
*[[Emulating the XO/Quick Start/Linux|Linux]]
+
-
*[[Emulating the XO/Quick Start/Linux#FreeBSD|FreeBSD]]
+
-
*[[Emulating the XO/Quick Start/Linux#Yellow Dog Linux on PlayStation3|Yellow Dog Linux on PlayStation3]]
+
-
 
+
-
You should now have a running "virtual XO".
+
-
 
+
-
== Running for the first time ==
+
-
 
+
-
[[Sugar Instructions]] will help you get oriented.  Though you may not need it.
+
-
 
+
-
Getting networking working requires some extra steps.  See [[Emulating the XO/Help and tips#Network setup|Network setup]].
