[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] SQLite installation

it seems that you're trying to install an osso-application-installer package. You can't do that with dpkg from the command line on the 770. Instead, use app-installer-tool, like this:

 Nokia770:/# app-installer-tool install sqlite_3.2.7_arm.deb

Did you check the error messages when trying to install the package with the application installer in control panel (there's a button for this)? If so, what did it report as the error?

Subject: [maemo-developers] SQLite installation
Can anyone tell me how SQLite should be installed on the Nokia 770? I
first installed it using the package installer in the control panel, but
then typing "sqlite3" in Xterm (as suggested in the library section in
the Wiki) did not work.  So I removed it, again using the control panel
app, and installed it from the root after signing in as root using SSH,
but then I got the following:

Nokia770:/# dpkg -i sqlite_3.2.7_arm.deb
Selecting previously deselected package sqlite.
(Reading database ... 5689 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking sqlite (from sqlite_3.2.7_arm.deb) ...
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of sqlite:
 sqlite depends on maemo; however:
  Package maemo is not installed.
dpkg: error processing sqlite (--install):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
Errors were encountered while processing:

But it does seem to be installed, as is shown in the next output:

Nokia770:/# sqlite3
SQLite version 3.2.7
Enter ".help" for instructions
sqlite> .q

Can anyone tell me if this last way of installing SQLite is the correct
way, in spite of the error messages?
