What is actually happening at Government of Pakistan's end following may help:
Pakistan has received 100 B-2 machines and is working on getting them deployed as a pilot project. While it may not be fair to generalize that teachers do not like to work as there certainly are several dedicated teachers both in rural as well as urban areas but working with less than perfect conditions is an accepted challenge for all ICT projects. Hence, part of the project is to identify champions and generate support at the appropriate levels before and during deployment.

Hope this helps.
Help needed with Zekr

OSRC is also providing technical consultancy in this regard. I have been trying to get Zekr (Quran) to run on it. Though I finally have succeeded to run it on acutall OLPC there is still a lot of optimization needed. The creator of Zekr is also working with us on it.

If anyone from linuxpakistan can help, it would be wonderful.
