Tried to install on N800 tasks/contacts/dates from OHand repository. Miserably failed. Missing evolution-data-server package. Where could I find one? I see the package in the repository – but for some reason AppManager is not happy with it. IIRC these apps already caused some troubles when I installed SIP support from Nokia…

I think it is time to establish some regular schedule for xkeyboard-config releases – just for distros to be able to get access to latest layouts and translations (without looking into CVS). Good old “release early, release often”. The only question is what would be the reasonable period…

    There is a known package conflict between the OpenedHand EDS packages, and the EDS packages provided by the Maemo rtcomm beta.

    If you use apt from a terminal you can fix it and get a working system, but AppManager won’t resolve the dependency tree sufficiently.

    I think this is still the same problem, most likely. Have you tried the GPE stuff? I’ve gotten it to sync with evo – try http://cleardefinition.com/page/Sync_Evolution_and_GPE_on_N800/

    Ross, why OHand cannot make it resolable? And how would I resolve it using apt-get? When I installed rtcomm, I had to uninstall OHand stuff – there was no other way:(

    Ryan, thanks I’ll give it a try

    With apt-get simply do apt-get install contacts. It will then moan about a library which it can’t install (IIRC libebook), then do apt-get install contacts libebook=[the version it said it can't install].

    This worked for me when I was debugging this probem. We’ll try and release newer packages which don’t break, but the proper solution is for Nokia to not ship a crippled EDS… :/
