== Summary ==
 
 
 
This spin incorporates the Sugar Desktop Environment, which makes it possible to utilize the same user interface used on the OLPC, but directly on a Fedora Live CD.

== Detailed Description ==
 
 
 
Sugar is a special environment targeted at educational purposes and following a philosophy of simplicity. It's being developed by [http://www.sugarlabs.org| Sugar Labs] and written in Python. The spin includes the desktop environment, but also the so-called activities: For example, you'll be able to browse the internet, check your e-mails (using the alpine terminal client), write documents, chat online, learn programming and do more stuff...
 
 
 
== Benefit to Fedora ==
 
 
 
Sugar is used by the OLPC Project. Having Sugar in Fedora is special. And giving users the possibility to run Sugar from a Live CD, which is based on Fedora, is even better. That way, we don't only help Fedora, but spread both technologies - Fedora and Sugar - together and allow our users to test a pre-configured version of the Sugar Desktop Environment directly from the CD.
 
 
 
== Kickstart File ==
 
 
 
http://git.fedoraproject.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git;a=blob;f=fedora-livecd-sugar.ks
 
 
 
== ISO Name / FS Label ==
 
* Fedora-11-i686-Sugar
 
* Fedora-11-x86_64-Sugar
 
 
 
== Dependencies ==
 
To build:
 
* livecd-tools
 
 
 
There are no further dependencies right now: Additional activities might be included once they come into Fedora, but they don't directly affect the spin or its dependencies.
 
 
 
Further apps:
 
* liveusb-creator
 
 
 
The Sugar Spin has been added to the [https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/| liveusb-creator], which is also the reason why HTTP hosting would be needed (also see comments below): The users will be able to directly download the spin and have it put onto their USB key.
 
 
 
== Scope / Testing ==
 
List of included apps:
 
 
 
* sugar desktop environment group (including activities)
 
* alpine e-mail client
 
* slim login manager
 
 
 
The testing might be coordinated with the [[OLPC|OLPC SIG]], which could help, especially with the activities.
 
 
 
Slim needs a modification in slim.conf to login the user automatically. This is currently done via %post, but would be probably better added to the fedora-live-base.ks, since this isn't the only spin using it.
 
 
 
== Comments and Discussion ==
 
 
 
* This spin has already been approved by the board in the past [https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2008-October/msg00076.html].
 
* We'd need HTTP hosting, as mentioned above. The spin has currently a home here [http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/olpc/].
