I think this is an excellent opportunity to get one more technical
contributor involved in Sugar Labs. Can you see if via local linux
user groups, student associations, etc. you can find someone with
linux experience that wants to spend some hours helping us debug this

I would say we need someone local that is not afraid of IRC, trac or
wiki, familiar with the command line and with enough patience and will
to learn.
