FreedomBox is a subset of Debian with the aim of acting as a server for
non-technical users, which implies eliminating the need for
When you customize FreedomBox, you essentially convert your system back
to a (non-FreedomBox) Debian system.
Concretely your best option for solving the issues you have with
initramfs is therefore to use the Debian support fora - or if you
suspect that you have discovered a bug then file a bugreport against the
initramfs package and help the maintainers of that package to find a fix
By no means do I mean to push you away from FreedomBox - quite the
contrary: Any and all of your findings from your customixzations
explorations that you think may be beneficial to FreedomBox - i.e. might
be usable in some "frozen" form for systems without administration -
would be awesome if you could share with the developers of FreedomBox!
I just mean to point out to you that developers of FreedomBox has a
different (even opposite) focus than yours when you explore "turning
lots of knobs" on your system. Enjoy!
