Re: N900 Repositories

ALL NOOBS

Use TESTING, DEV... ALL OTHER REPOSITORIES AT YOUR OWN RISK.

 

Get to know NSU & Flasher well.... Backup up often and DO NOT complain that Nokia has put out a POS device and POS firmware when your device becomes as stable as a manic deppressive off of Depacote.

 

 

Other then that have a wonderful day and play safe.

Re: N900 Repositories

i know buddy, but you will be fine even if your rootfs space gets down to 10mb.

 

it just needs to be clear when the updates come that require a larger amount.

 

 

but your right, its a hog.

Re: N900 Repositories

Can someone write why and how these repositories may be used?

Briefly a few lines about each.....if possible, listing the applications that can be enabled using each of these repositories.

That will be a big help for the NOOBs.

 

Thanks

Re: N900 Repositories

ha. you posted the same post in two threads!


if you dont know what devtools are, then you dont need to install it.


if you are talking about the extras-devel repository, then feel free to install that. it will allow you access to some of the developing applications that are being released, but at your own risk.

Re: N900 Repositories

yes, you can just reflash.

it is stated because we cannot control what you do or do not do which could effect your device, causing you to have to flash it.

that is all.


some people like to say they followed the directions, mess it up becuase they missed something, then slander or blame others for having to start over.
