                    FreedomBox Weekly Image Report

Author: Nick Daly
Date: 2012-11-11 Sun

Hi folks, welcome to the 17th weekly FreedomBox test image and progress
report.  This week, there isn't an SD card image and there is only a
VirtualBox image, due to time constraints.  Unzip the VirtualBox image
and run it in VirtualBox to try the system out.

1 Introduction

  These images include several FreedomBox-related projects.  The changes are
  changes made by project contributors in the last week that have made it into
  the test image.  The outstanding TODOs are the changes needed before the
  beta-release is complete.  If you'd like to contribute in any way, fork and
  send me a pull request.

  The image is available at:




  Today's image was produced with:

      $ make weekly-image

2 How do I try it out?

  There are two ways you can test it out.  The easy way is to use
  VirtualBox and run the image in a virtual machine.  These
  instructions have more details:


  You can also install the image to your DreamPlug directly.  If
  you've bought your own DreamPlug, you'll probably need to flash the
  firmware, which requires a JTAG.  Follow these instructions:
