8.1.1 Features to Test

Jump to: navigation, search

This list is pretty much copied verbatim from OLPC_8.1.1_Features, but it will be changed to reflect the list of features that are being tested.

Each item in the list should be marked to indicate whether it should remain in the list (and be tested) or if it should be removed (and not be tested) according to the following:

  • A plus (+) indicates that the item should be left in the list and tested.
  • A minus(-) indicates that the item should be removed from the list and not tested.
  • A tilde (~) indicates that the item could go either way.
+ associate with 802.11 b/g access points with or without WEP and WPA1 encryption.
+ associate with other XO or Active-Antenna 802.11s meshes.
+ keymaps are correct or are very close to correct for US/International, Amharic, Spanish, Portuguese, and Kreyól keyboards.
- translations of system strings need help!
Recording Audio and Video
+ Pippy, Record, and TamTam will be able to play and record sounds.
+ Pippy and Record will be able to take photographs.
+ Record will be able to record short videos, stills and audio only.
+ Measure will be able to measure signals with or without DC voltage bias.
+ volume keys on the keyboard will adjust the speaker volume while Sugar is running.
Multi-media Composition
+ pictures can be composed with text in a system editor such as Write. (We actually expect Write to do a lot of other things.)
+ fancier multimedia like video, audio, and programs can be manipulated in an environment like Etoys.
+ copy-and-paste media clips between activities
+ download media clips into the Journal
Interpreters for Standard Data Formats
+ be able to display and edit DOC, ODT, JPEG, PNG, GIF, WAV, OGG, HTML, JS, some SWF, and several other less-well known formats.
~ We expect NOT to be able to display restricted formats including MP3, MPEG, most AVI, RM, FLV, etc.
Extensibility and Malleability of Software
+ w/ internet or preparation: install new activities and library content via the internet or via USB keys.
+ w/ internet: install new software via 'yum install' or 'rpm -U' via the internet. Data in /home should be PRESERVED.
+ w/ internet: olpc-update to new versions of the operating system via the internet. Data in /home should be PRESERVED.
+ w/ preparation: olpc-update to new versions of the operating system via USB. Data in /home should be PRESERVED.
+ w/ preparation: reflash appropriately signed builds via USB. NO DATA should be preserved.
+ access the root account via the virtual terminals or via the Terminal activity (if present.)
+ access to the firmware "ok" prompt w/ developer key, requestable through Browse
Real-time Synchronous (RS) Collaboration
+ Reliability of current RS collaboration is conditioned in complicated ways on available network bandwidth, packet loss rates, connectivity scenario, and exact software protocol/implementation. See the Collaboration network testbed for details.
+ Installing or removing activities should never change the ability of the system to run.
~ In practice, bad things may happen if you run out of disk space or if you remove/modify the Journal or Terminal.
~ Alternately, malicious code could circumvent the isolation framework separating activities from system software and user data.
+ Keep opening activities until it runs out of space or slows to a crawl. Ensure it doesn't crash or at least behaves as well as previous versions.
+ Check all FAQ procedures? http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Support_FAQ
Power Control & Conservation
+ when the lid is closed or when the power button is pressed while Sugar is running, suspend in order to conserve power.
+ resume from suspend in response to input such as key-presses, mouse motion, power-button presses, unicast network traffic addressed to the laptop, and several other stimuli.
+ cut power by holding the power button for several seconds
+ power off or reset the machine via the Central XO-person's Palette
+ measure time from full charge to discharge in several cases (e.g. no activity, browsing, MPP). Ensure that power usage is the same or lower than previous releases.
+ Ensure charges correctly. See power charging issues link (Richard may have it handy...)
+ store user data to and to retrieve user data from FAT16/VFAT formatted USB Mass Storage devices.
- We DO NOT expect to be able to store user data to or to retrieve user data from SD cards until #6532 is addressed.
+ USB ethernet adapters, keyboards, and mice should function similarly to their normal function on other operating systems.
+ login via serial consoles.
- We do not have strong expectations about the behavior of other peripherals.
Simplified Multi-Tasking
+ interact with one activity or "location" at a time
+ switch between the current activity and other locations with the view keys or the frame
+ switch between activities with Alt-Tab or the activity ring
+ start new activities and stop running ones with the frame, ring, or activity toolbar, respectively.
+ list, search, and filter records of actions on the system by time
+ filter records of actions by title
Theft Deterrence
+ laptops should travel through the delivery chain unactivated.
+ laptops should not boot until they are activated.
+ can be activated wirelessly (with a school server) (not recently tested)
+ can be activated via USB.
+ developer keys should grant access to OFW.
+ should be able to flash any build from OFW.
+ should be able to rewrite manufacturing data (e.g. language, write-protect tags) from OFW
~ should respond to gamepad Cheat codes
+ Frame pops up on mouse over of hot corners and disappears with no performance degradation.
+ Copy and paste works from frame
+ Test F1 - F4 keys via keyboard and GUI
+ Test reboot, shutdown and register
+ All options in Sugar control panel
+ Check cursor control with touch pad (may go in different section)
+ Test all keys on key board including short cuts
Core activities
+ For the following activities ensure that they launch with no performance degradation, they save to journal, share correctly, stop and resume.
++ Terminal
++ Journal?
++ Browse
++ Write
++ Paint
++ Chat
++ others?
