There were numerous missing pieces to make this work under Linux. But  
a couple 100 000 kids in Spanish-speaking countries were motivation  
enough to fix this in the OLPC VM and image :)

You should use the very latest Linux VM (3.10-1 is the latest  
release). Your image might need fixing too, you could try if it works  
with the Etoys image (it should):
