Finally got a laptop again. (My old one is still lost in transit.)
Unfortunately I didn't get the wireless thing working under GNU/Linux yet.
Since internet is more important, I can't use scratchbox yet.

dictd is working. More or less. It actually only works correctly when
I do a -d nodetach. I don't know why this happens. But it's good
enough for now. I actually have something working right now.

Maybe the dictd package should not start the server (e.g. mv S20dictd
K20dictd)? That way  MaemoDict can simply depend on it without
resources being wasted when MaemoDict is not running. It would also be
really cool to have Debian's dict-* packages in some maemo repository.
Later on I will try to create some dict-wikipedia and dict-wiktionary

Now I'm going to check if creating packages is still possible on the
N770 itself.

Also, could someone could create an armel version of GNU screen and slocate?
That would be very helpful for developing. Especially since I'm doing
it directly on the N770.
