Note that I never got it working under Debian Squeeze. I used Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS instead. They also have a build for 12.04 LTS, but, based on their bug tracker, there still seem to be some issues. (Note that 12.04 LTS is only on beta 2 at the moment.)

perform as minimal of an install of ubuntu server 10.04 as possible

sudo aptitude install ssh
sudo apitutde purge libxext6 libxmuu1 xauth
# don't bother removing other x11 stuff, as bluecherry (via. php5-gd) ends up wanting it

pushd /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
sudo wget http://ubuntu.bluecherrydvr.com/sources.list.d/bluecherry.list
popd

...or...

echo deb http://ubuntu.bluecherrydvr.com lucid main # Bluecherry Ubuntu 10.04 LTS packages > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/bluecherry.list


wget -q http://ubuntu.bluecherrydvr.com/key/bluecherry.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -

# attempted workaround for debian only...
# the bluecherry postinst assumes the existence of a syslog user... argh!
# ...while this works, their package also seems to assume an upstart-based system, so it doesn't work with sysvinit under debian
echo syslog:x:0:4::/root:/bin/false >> /etc/passwd
echo syslog:*:14970:0:99999:7::: >> /etc/shadow
