Build a customized Linux Debian image with Debos

Debos is a tool to make the creation of Debian-based OS images simpler. This article illustrates how to create microSD images for the Acme Systems board

This procedure has been tested on:

  • Debian Linux 10 and 11
  • Ubuntu Linux 22.04

Installing Debos package:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install debos

Clone this git repository:

git clone
cd debos-for-acmesystems-boards

Add your Linux username to kvm group:

sudo adduser $USER kvm

Select the command to generate the image for your Acme Systems board. If you are using an Ubuntu Linux distribution add --disable-fakemachine option.

debos acme-foxd27-bookworm.yaml
debos acme-roadrunner.yaml
debos acme-acqua.yaml
debos acme-aria.yaml
debos acme-arietta.yaml
debos acme-foxg20.yaml

The file:


will contains the microSD image

Use Etcher to write your microSD with the image generated

at bootstrap use:

Login: acme
Password: acmesystems

to extend the rootfs to fill the microSD size type:

sudo growpart /dev/mmcblk0 2
sudo resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p2
