[Debian-olpc-devel] Running Debian on an XO

Hi Petter, and others with similar interests,

We looked at your XO-1 this weekend, and you decided to have it run 
Debian instead of the OLPC-provided default Fedora spin.

In case you didn't find it yourself already, here is the guide that I 
succesfuly followed:


What was _not_ succesful - as you also verified saturday night - was the 
"fast-tracking" using the "olpc-update debian" command.  That command 
seems broken (or rather, the ready-made Debian image that it rsyncs 
seems broken).  Also, I personally feel more comfortable using 
debootstrap than trusting some unofficial mirrored result of a 
debootstrap process.

Hope that helps,

   - Jonas
