[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Python installation failure on N800

I take your point, 
I went back to blue pill mode after I'd played with it a while, it's good to know that one can switch back and forth between the modes.
The reason I purchased the device was so that I could play with things like this, it's not such a closed box as, say, a Treo. These red-pill-like features are exactly what I was looking for. And if it gets me into trouble from time to time then I will just have to re-flash. The same could be said for installing the xterm or python.
It's good to have an inexpensive device that's bringing some of the fun back into computing - just like my ZX81 once did.
Thanks all

Red-pill mode is irrelevant when the application installer looks for

I think it is a bad idea to have the red-pill mode enabled all the time.
You may decide to upgrade some system package (e.g. maemo-launcher) and
as a result make the system unbootable.
