If you are looking to try FreedomBox on x86 hardware, you can:

- Install Debian unstable and then install the package freedombox-setup.

- Build an x86 (or amd64) image using 'make virtualbox' target available
in freedom-maker[1] script.  In addition to VirtualBox .vdi file this
step will generate a .img file which can be used as a hard drive or an
SD card image.

We should have better documentation about this :)
