Activation fails on emulators

From email to devel@:
Trying to boot build 553 in a VirtualBox environment (testing fix in
[1]), I see a failure in the activation code (I'm copying this manually):

/, line 17, in run
from initutil import activate_fail
ImportError: cannot import name activate_fail

which suggests that even if I fix the error it's just going to fail
anyway, it's just not telling me nicely.

Any suggestions on how to get past this point while running on a virtual
machine? I've tried mapping a USB key into the VirtualBox client with a
build 553 upgrade/install image, but it didn't do the activation,
producing the same traceback.

Almost there, he thinks,

  • Cc cscott added
  • Owner changed from cscott to J5
  • Priority changed from normal to blocker

Bypassing the initrd on boot is a temporary workaround.

olpcrd 0.20 fixes this problem. J5: can you include this in the next build?
