[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Questions aftering flashing n800...where is opera?

I have installed SDK (scratchbox and devroots) on my linux laptop. N800
had devfs flashed to it.

I understand how to build apps on laptop and push/exec on N800....but
I'm still at a loss as to how to get Opera back on device (and some
other apps present on N800 from factory).

I would think Opera would be available either from SDK or via pkg
install using ApplicationManager on device. Just because I want
dev-oriented device...doesn't mean I want all apps to be missing.

I have read ALL N800-related docs I am aware of...and haven't found this
information. I have examined app repositories and don't see Opera anywhere.

Minimo ain't cutting it for me at the moment...a skosh crashy.
