>How about a 'turnup debian'? :)That works, but it might be better to automagically recognise that the
'disk' is a debian rootfs, not an openembedded one. This is safer.
I recommend writing /boot/debian and using that in place of /boot/disk (from
/linuxrc). /boot/debian would fix the LEDs and avoid (somehow) creating the
/.recovery. It might also modprobe the ixp modules - that would avoid the
need to copy them over to the Debian rootfs, which would avoid the need to
hack it. (The problem being the licensing issue - it's much easier to use
the built ixp modules than to distribute them in an image and the easiest
way to use them is to permanently insert them into the kernel from
OpenSlug - which is the initrd.)

copy files - the '-i' option has to be specified to cause that to happen.
The issue of twiddling the config files really is separate. "turnup -i"
expects an empty partition, "turnup disk" expects a completely twiddled
partition. There is no option which expects a populated but untwiddled
partition. It is obscure but a whole load of the twiddling does not
actually happen inside 'turnup' but, rather, inside
'/etc/init.d/sysconfsetup' - so that when the flash contents are copied the
result is almost completely ready-twiddled.
I suggest writing a separate 'twiddle' script and putting it in the Debian
image, then if 'turnup disk' finds this script it simply executes it (and
selects /boot/debian rather than /boot/disk). That's actually a general
solution for any image (well, it is if the "/boot/debian" stuff is done by
the script not turnup.) BTW there's no great reason for using /boot/foo -
just write a /linuxrc if it is easier - /boot/foo exists so that I could
share bootstrap code between the different OpenEmbedded boots.
>(Or maybe 'turnup debian /dev/sda1' could even do the wget/unpack itself..)If you want to do that then I strongly suggest a different script, so far as
I can see that script would have little or no common code with the current
