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.

Swirlberry - kerberized email on the Openmoko Freerunner
21st August 2008

Thanks to the the great work of the pkg-fso team you can now install Debian onto your Openmoko Freerunner. This gives you access to all Debian packages and makes it a great tool for you mails, contacts, etc. Here's howto get kerberized email on the Freerunner:

Afterwards you have a tiny email client usable on your Freerunner. Connect to wireless via the network manager applet and enter your kerberos password via krb5-auth-dialog applet (both in the lower right corner of your panel) then fire up TMut via the icon in the lower left corner of the panel.

Things that could be a bit nicer though:
