Swirlberry Debian package
5th October 2008

There's now a swirlberry package available for the Freerunner:

    echo <<EOF >/etc/apt.conf.d/99_swirlberry.list
    deb unstable/
    apt-get install swirlberry

This brings all the necessary dependencies and sets up your X-session. It makes most of the configuration steps superflous, only thing left is setting up your kerberos principal and your tmut accounts. Make sure you restart your zhone-session once after installing the package.

Also make sure that:

hostname --fqdn

returns a valid hostname (if it doesn't check /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname) and that you have something like ntpdate installed for proper timekeeping. Note: if you want to use network manager you still have to add allow-hotplug eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces.
