debootstrap, olpc, and gnome

Versioned Fedora setup that is by default on OLPC-1.75 is a bit too strange for me, so I attempted to get Debian/ARM to work there. First, I used multistrap, but that uses separate repositories. debootstrap might be deprecated, but at least it works... after I figured need to do debootstrap --second-stage in chroot. I added firmware, set user password, installed system using tasksel, and things started working.

So now, I have a working gnome on OLPC... with everything a bit too small. I don't know how OLPC solved high-dpi support, but Debian certainly does not do the right thing by default.
