Tidy up of the xs-0.5 yum repo - what differentiates OLPC's XS from vanilla Fedora?
A useful bit of info, and a chance ot say thanks :-) The composition
on the XS release 0.5 breaks down like this.
A couple of packages that are in Fedora rawhide (or making a beeline
for it), but we needed ahead of time - thanks to the many Fedorans
that jumped in and helped!:
./fakeroot-1.9.6-16.fc7.i386.rpm (an old, buggy version is in F9)
A couple packages with custom patches...
Luckily, the OLPC XS delta isn't as large or as punishing as the XO
delta. We do use anaconda and yum in perhaps new and unexpected ways
-- we're right now hurting a bit on those fronts. OTOH, just like the
XO, we need smaller memory and disk footprints, through
less/better/smaller daemons and smarter, tighter dependencies (which
have improved quite a bit lately - thanks!).
