Freedombox for Rock64 - Danielsan - 11-20-2018

Hi Guys,

I found this very interesting project that is based on Debian, beside the fact that it would be awesome if we can have a customized iso image, I was wondering if, since the moment it is based on Debian, using the Debian iso and the official guide it is possible setup the freedombox, what do you think?

From their FAQ:

Quote:2.4. Do I need a single board computer like Cubietruck or Raspberry PI to run FreedomBox?
  • A:¬†No, you can run FreedomBox on any computer that you can install Debian on. The FreedomBox team provides images for some of the more common single board computers and for virtual box to make it easier for people to get up and running. But you can install FreedomBox on any debian computer by installing the freedombox-setup package.

Probably all you need to do to try is "apt-get install freedombox-setup"...ill leave the google-fu to you...IMO i would prefer not to replace my router with a multi purpose server, dont seem to be a really good idea, other than that everything can be docker-ized or installed on the host...

Quote:1.2. What does it do ?
  • A:¬†FreedomBox allows you to provide services to your family and friends (files and bookmarks hosting, remote storage, chat, wiki/blog), to protect your private life against advertising companies while surfing on the net, and to stay anonymous on the network. FreedomBox sets and upgrades automatically the security of these services. You can connect to FreedomBox when you are outside your home in a secure manner to access services and reach other personal computers or electronic devices. You can choose to route your mobile phone traffic via your FreedomBox using your internet connection at home. You can also do group audio chats and BitTorrent, even on very simple hardware.


omv as host, pihole on docker (or host), nextcloud on docker (or host), pivpn on a docker, several torrent clients on docker (or host), wordpress (blog) on dockers, i can keep going and going and going...

Also, IMHO projects that try to do everything most often than not fail at most of those things...

Last note, ive been reading the FAQ and i have the feeling that those guys try to sell hot air, not sure why, sounds to good to be true if you know what i mean...

It is inside the Debian Wiki, I don't believe they would allowed fake software.
