I was able to get "Osso Xterm" from the repository listed there installed, I 
had trouble with "Osso Xterm (advanced)" though I don't remember any more if 
it was a dependency problem or the "Unable to install.  Incompatible 

After I had Osso xterm installed and dropbear, I got my network working and 
added the repositories to the sources.list. I used apt-get to install 
packages from this time on and I did not get the incompatible packages any 
more. But I remember there was a discussion recently on the maemo-devel list 
about that topic...
