Activation fails on emulators

Reported by: cscott Owned by: J5
Priority: blocker Milestone: Trial-3
Component: distro Version:
Keywords: emulator Cc: mcfletch@…, cscott
Action Needed: Verified: no
Deployments affected: Blocked By:


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):

/antitheft.py, 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, Mike

Bypassing the initrd on boot is a temporary workaround.

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