The code implementing my proposal is now available from
<URL: https://github.com/petterreinholdtsen/freedom-maker/tree/setup-using-deb >.
Using it, 'make rootfs' still work, but I do not know if the resulting
image work on a dreamplug, as I lack the hardware to test on.  But I
believe it should.

The deb on the other hand do work in a kvm virtual machine to set up a
dreambox like environment.  Install a simple Debian system (with only
the base system and no extra packages installed in the tasksel step),
install freedombox-setup and run /usr/lib/freedombox/setup.  Reboot, and
you should have all the currently configured packages set up by the

Happy hacking
