Sugar development

Jump to: navigation, search

Sugar is currently under heavy development, and is meant to be used by developers. There are no binary packages yet available.

(See also the Sugar category for a broad view on the subject)


The easiest way to build Sugar from sources is to use sugar-jhbuild.

You may also want to see the specific instructions for several Linux distributions, for MS-Windows or MacOS X.

Emulation and/or Testing

You don't need a real OLPC laptop in order to see what it's like, how it works and test activities—you can use an emulator. OLPC periodically updates the emulation images for the QEMU emulator that is available for *ix, MS-Windows and MacOS X.

(See the Emulation category for further links)

You can find the latest stable build here.

Note: There are ways to convert the QEMU images for use in other emulation software—ie: VMWare's Player—but OLPC image standard is for QEMU.
