Hmm...yes you are right, the OS2006 version works well.

So should the OS2007 hacker edition use maemo 2.2 repositories?

Now I am curious:

N770 contains an ARM9, N800 contains an ARM11. Is the ARM11 backward 
compatible to the ARM9?

The hacker edition contains a lot of binaries from OS2007:
"We mostly used precompiled binaries and only recompiled something when we had 
to" (from http://maemo.org/maemowiki/Os2007On770)

So does that mean that (most of) the OS2007 is compiled for an ARM9?

Or is that a completely wrong path?
