This implies some interesting questions which popped up on #maemo
yesterday, too.

Are packages from the catalogue.tableteer.nokia.com repository only
meant to be installed on the device while packages from the
repository.maemo.org repository are only meant to be installed in

Are packages in repository.maemo.org assumed to allways work on the
device or only in scratchbox?

I don't think this is clearly documented anywhere and it's even less a
common practise because some packages in the application catalog assume
and suggest to enter the repository.maemo.org on the device.

This is also related to the "apt-get upgrade" -> "Reboot Cycle" problem
which seems to appear more frequently lately.
