***14. Nov. 2012*********************************

 OR open your N900 browser to this page and click below to initial auto install.

 Click Me to Install EXTRAS
Click Me to Install Extras-Devel
Click Me to Install EXTRAS-TESTING

If there is a problem with a repository you've set up, it can be edited/checked for errors directly from the source file

If you dont have filebox (file explorer with root power) and leafpad (easy code editor)
Open X-terminal and:
sudo gainroot
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install filebox <open filebox>setting>root access>YES / change editor to leafpad>close app
apt-get install leafpad

close xterminal and open filebox and navigate to:

Open file     "hildon-application-manager.list" to edit

It should show as:
deb ./ 
deb ./ 
deb fremantle free non-free
deb fremantle free
deb fremantle free
deb fremantle/tools free
 the 2 first lines are the one you need absolutely, the third is safe, the others use them only if you know what you're doing! and where there is a space, keep it!

Taken from and modified for noob usage! :-O The reason I am providing Leafpad and Filebox installations is because Filebox lets you navigate to any partition or folder in Maemo or NItdroid and allows leafpad to be used as editor for system files and is simple and easy to fiddle with!


 ok.. so some users have been complaining of getting below notice after an "apt-get update" command in X-terminal.
Nokia-N900:~# apt-get update
W: GPG error: ./ Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY ADB443xxxxA65xEF
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Solution:disable OVI repository from Application Manager>catalogues.

disable following source in (Use Filebox to view): 

"deb ./"

In Most cases, it is due to your firmware and repositories. As you can see above, it says fremantle1.2. After the PR1.3 update was issued, all distributions are "fremantle" and might face issues like this.
