Took me less time that I thought — Maemo5 updates repository is on-line.
How to use it? Instruction in few simple steps:
- Fetch GnuPG key which I used to sign repository.
- Add it to APT on Nokia N900: “
apt-key add apt-key.asc“
- Add my repository to APT sources by storing following line in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/system-updates.list file:
deb http://marcin.juszkiewicz.com.pl/download/maemo/repos/system-updates/2009.51/ ./
- Run “
apt-get update” or use Hildon Application Manager (H-A-M) refresh function.
- Run “
apt-get upgrade” or check did H-A-M listed some upgrades and tell him to install them.
So far my repository contains Modest with fix for bug #6541 and “Maemo 5” metapackage altered to allow system updates to be installed. Sources of all packages are provided of course.
