I am not sure whether it is caused by the Ubuntu 10.10 amd64 running on my workstation or on some bug in the Emdebian package, but I do have a hard time to get Emdebian installed. I have tried Multistrap, Debootstrap, and Debian Installer, and I have done it on the Alix computer using PXE boot, on my workstation (followed by chroot etc), and on virtual machines using qemu/kvm or Virtualbox, but so far no luck.
All of this makes it less and less attempting to actually install any Emdebian based Debian, and so I gradually turned back to Voyage Linux. When I was browsing the Voyage site I learned about Debian Live, the system that “punkytse” uses to create the Voyage images, and also offers for download under tha name “Voyage SDK”. So now I am testing Debian Live and trying to learn more about it.
For those interested in PC Engines Alix the Alix forum may also be a good source of information.
